Can't cancel it? It's too late~? x.x Oh well~ ish not bad... dude anything~ ANYTHING would be better than the stock cooler. The stock cooler literally is made to be the cheapest cooler on the planet. It's Intel basically feeling FORCED to tack on a heatsink for the most bare minimum. They can't sell the things by themselves.
If they could go without adding one in there, they probably would (and do~ through OEM) they have to make the cheapest thing possible so the price won't hike itself up because of it~ thus it's SO cheap and lame... that the price barely figures into the total price of the processor. It's literally a hunk of metal crap. XD
Don't worry~ the 212 you got will be pretty awesome, and hey~ you saved some money for when you do finally get a super premium cooler it'll be the one you want. I spent weeks trying to choose the perfect cooler~ but I already had my Zalman 9700NT and it's pretty good, but I dare say yours will probably be much better than even this and I do like 75c at 4.8ghz on Prime. Don't fret~
