Man I would've told him to take his garbage stock cooler back and not pay him.
Like gee thanks sherlock for telling me my cpu cooler is broken, and charging me $60 to do so.

Well, OP's friend could not figure it out their own and had to bring it to a shop to diagnose it for him. That costs money.

Customer :Hey I cant figure this out, can I pay you to do it?
Employee: Well sir, the cooler mounting bracket is cracked, we can install one for you, it will be $118.
Customer :Oh that was easy! I am not paying you for your time!

That hardly seems fair. Then again, I deal with people like that on a daily basis at my shop.

Okay we all work. We all understand the value of labor and hours. At least if you are charging $118 don't use a stock cooler. It would be fair if they gave him something that was a little bit extra. He could've gotten a H100 for that price.

Computer problems are not rocket science he already knew the problem, no one should charge $100 to diagnose the problem and $18 to fix it.

Well I live, and do IT work (not much break/fix these days) in the USA, and that seems very high to me.

None of that matters though! His rig works again and all is well.
