That's what I have. It's certainly not a great cooler, but it's good performance for its price and will be okay for pretty mild overclocking.

if you mean the stock cooler, then yes.

id suggest the hyper 212+ from coolermaster. it worked better than the 520, and i think i got mine cheaper.

Yeah it's better than the stock fan for sure. The 212+ is a better cooler though. I got mine because I broke my stock cooler lol and had to buy what compusa had.
