Coolermaster V8 by a lot, but there are some coolers that are even better than the V8 and if you are getting a 980X i assume you can afford something like the Noctua NH-D14

Hmm you are right, nice find. So its probably not worth replacing it in most cases since it doesnt even have the classic push pins

Wether it's worth it or not depends on the temps you're looking for.
Switching from the stock cooler to an H50 with dual fans lowered my 980's temps by 10º C.
