Depends what you want to use it for.

Good for low profile applications.
Poor for overclocking potential.

Fill in your system details so we can help you some more

It's an okay-ish cooler, as noted before, not so great for overclocking.

Seeing you've got a 2600k I suggest you get something a bit better performing since it's a great CPU for overclocking.

The Noctua D-14, Thermalright Silver Arrow are the 2 top cooler out there ATM (roughly!) But also pretty pricy.

The Cooler Master hyper 212+ and the Scythe Mugen 2 are 2 of the best budget coolers and will cool your CPU just fine as well.

Good luck and don't hesitate to ask anything else.

Hey thanks. I can only get the one i mentioned and a standard intel cooler, or an Arctic cooling one (I cant get any more specific details of them if needed)

Ok, I see, then I suggest you to go indeed with the one you mentioned.

Just don't push it to much.

Cheers.
