I got this heatsink from a friend to try and see what happens but before I do I wanted to ask a few questions.

Heatsink is: Core-Contact Freezer by Sun Beam Tech

It has 4 heat pipes 2 of the 1st has one crack semi but still a little crack that can be felt by a finger nail, and the 4th heat pipe has similar crack and so does the base.

On the 1st Pipe has an round 90degree angle that indented size of a finger or thumb nail.

There's lots of scratches.

And I was curious would that affect the cooling processor? Or Cause harm to my processor?

Im using the same cooler-but I lapped it LoL..I supposed if its not leaking out some fluid you could probably use it. why don't you try to install it and try to see how it goes..
