Another friend offered me to replace it with a CPU cooler from his now deceased desktop. I reckon it is about 3-4 years old. The CPU cooler it has got is this one: My link
My motherboard is this one: MSI 870A-G54, Socket AM3 ATX, AMD870+SB850, DDR3, 2xPCIe(2.0)x16
I have been told that it is compatible, is that true? And do you think this is a good idea, taking the age of the other CPU cooler into consideration? And is it true that it should be let noisy?
