The WBK-38 is probably better than your CoolerMaster, but it does not represent the best you can do. Few just a few dollars more, you can get a ThermalRight SK-6, or Millenium Glaciator. For a few dollars less, you can get a Gladiator. I have heard nothing but good things for that HSF. Probably the best bang-for-buck out there right not. Check the cooling forum for more ideas. Be careful judging your cooling performance using ASAU Probe. It is generally accepted that it reads a little high.
