Im planning to buy a better cooler for my CPU cause the stock cooler was reaching around 70c under load.

The motherboard I have is this

and the cooler i plan on buying would be this one

so I was wondering would these work together? Im not experienced with these types of hardware so I dont know and also if it does fit, how easy would the install be?

COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3+
$34.99 and a $5 rebate with free shipping , final price $29.99.

Yes they will fit and work together and if you follow the insrtuctions it is not hard at all to do , you do need to make sure that the thermal compound is spread in a very thin layer and a good thing to use for that is a credit card. It may come preapplied so you wouldn't have to apply it just fasten the heatsink down with the brackets.

Depending on your case you may also need to remove the motherboard from it.

This is because that cooler will need to be supported by a bracket thatt you'll have to install to the back of the motherboard.

Some cases have a hole in the back so that you can access the back of the motherboard without removing it. Access this by sliding off the case's back panel.
