Money wasted, that new HSF is not compatible at all .
Stock cooler is running fine. Was able to overclock from 3516 Mhz to 4026 Mhz !
you can oc with the stck cooler ??? What are your temps ? When I tried to oc with stock cooler temps hit over 65 c @3.7 , cpu would hit 60c + just playing BF3 at stock speeds . Surprised you can hit those clocks with stock hsf and not overheat . And the cooler you linked to id good for a 65w cpu , not a pII X4
