Is this HSF better than the stock HSF?

i want to replace the stock cooler of my e5400 for this one:
http://uk.connectland.eu/products/fiche/id/362/name/eole-802-socket-775-cpu-cooler
i know its a cheap HSF BUT i cant afford to spend a lot of money on it and cant seem to find any good ones ( i dont use newegg, amazon, craigslist, etc)

Edit:
how about the COOLERMASTER HYPER TX3? ($39)

  1. I doubt it. That HSF doesn't look much different than the stock Intel POS. Why do you not use Newegg? Are you opposed to finding what you need for reasonable prices?

  4. Try to find the Cooler Master Hyper 212+ in your vicinity.
    It's better then the TX3.
    If you can't source the 212+ the original TX3 version is not too bad.
    There are two TX3 models the newer one says TX3 G1 and performs worse then the original version.
    Ideally you want the HYPER 212+.

    I found one, but for $87, is a bit too much for me.

    That's way out of line it can be had for around $35 Canadian walk-in where i live.
    The TX3 has a more realistic price considering what you're up against.

    You could buy the TX3 or this one if you can source it but don't expect spectacular temperature drops.What you will get is a quieter fan compared to stock fan.

  8. I got my TX3 from a nearby Microcenter for 25$, though it doesn't seem like that's an option for you. I like it so far. I've been able to OC my Phenom 955 to 3.6 with pretty good temps and it's not terribly loud. You can definitely find better heatsinks (212+), but if you can find one in the 30$ range it's a pretty good deal.
