From the pictures I looked at I am not sure how well it would cool them. It might be cheaper to just get a new heatsink.

I think the Stock heat sink will be fine on my son's new build, the CPU is an I5-4570 which is not Overclockable so it should handle the heat fine.

Reply to ahnilated m 0 l Brian1234132 June 14, 2014 11:48:53 PM To be honest, even if you are not overclocking. I would pay 20-30$ to get a Hyper 212 Evo. No doubt its leagues better than stock, and probably no chance of overheating if you aren't OCing.
