The EVO is better. I would get some rubbing alcohol to clean the processor after you remove the heatsink, and then re-apply thermal paste to the processor. You do not need very much. Not more than the size of a pea. Both coolers should come with a tube of thermal paste.

Make sure it fits your case. It's tall.
