Hi,I need expert opinion on this.I have AMD FX 8320 with stock cooler which is loud as a jet engine,and I have a Cooler Master Vortex 752
from my previous pc.So my question is should replace the stock cooler whit this if vortex 752 can keep solid temps and the noise down.
My temps with the stock cooler is not that bad idle 20 full load 60.Its just the matter of noise,I dont want to replace it if it's not going to help me and I only have little thermal paste left so I cant experiment I need professional thoughts on this.
Thanks in advance!

Says it supports up to 95W TDP. The 8320 is 125 so I wouldn't use it.
Grab yourself a cheap CM Hyper 212 Evo or something, that'll cool much better and still be much quieter than the stock cooler.

Thanks for the quick reply,I didn't see any info about TDP on their site,but I'm glad you did.
Guess I'll start saving for the 212 or 412 slim.
