I want to note that if your HSF's mounting system is NOT a solid one (solid being that it screws in or something), then you'll probably get worse temps because there is less surface area contact. For example, my Ninja uses a clip system. Since the clip system is not "solid" like a screw-in system would be, the core doesn't make good contact with the HSF (the HSF can "hang" since it's so big), and my temps were worse.
