    i bought a Coolermaster Hyper N520 a while back for my e5200. i sold the pc and kept the cooler.

    Now got myself a Deepcool Iceedge 400 just because of the i5 compatibility.

    i wanted to know if it was worth getting the Retention bracket for the coolermaster so that i can use on my i5??? (maybe i should just sell it)
    Its going to cost about $20 !!!!!

    I'll be doing some OC afterwards (4ghz maybe ;)).
    which one would be the most efficient??

    Does that Coolermaster Hyper N520 have a dual fans on it?
    If it does then I would stay with it.

    1xfan deepcool : 37.18CFM
    2xfan coolermaster : 43.8CFM(total)

    They are not that great. can always add another one on the Deepcool.

    True, Use which ever one moves the most air and costs less to setup.

    I would keep the Cooler master based on one fact. More surface area.

    Either cooler will do fine at stock, but once OC'd I believe the coolermaster will pull ahead and not saturate with heat as fast as the other.

    I will say both could benifit from a fan swap;)

    sorry. Keep the other cooler then, it looks like you are sort of forced to make that call:(
