CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo

I ordered a CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo from Amazon for £26.50 to keep my machine a little cooler than the stock heat sink. The two heat sinks are shown below. The CoolerMaster is much bigger and could be a struggle to get in to most cases but I am very happy with the results. It keeps my processor cooler and is a little quieter than the stock one.
