Throw it away? Leave it in the box? Convert it for some other use?

Mine are in the boxes. I used to tell myself they were backups in case the after-market cooler dies. I guess you could sell them at the recycle places.

I actually used mine until I got my Hyper 212. Its currently in box/closet as I just moved my wife off of S939 and only S775. I might upgrade her stock cooler with mine as its slightly better, or just sell on CL for $5.

Mine is in the box, no reason to throw it away because the aftermarket one that is in use might fail eventually.
Backup cooler:) .

Keep it in the Box in case the CPU gets resold when prices on better CPUs drop !!

I am using water cooling so if I ever throw this CPU at my other crappy computers, it would have a heatsink to run at stock speeds lol.
