Care to share why? A heat sink acts to pull heat away by conducting the heat through metal. Would a refurbished heat sink not pull heat away as well? I personally think that there are many other components that are more vital to buy new than a heat sink, but I'd like to hear your thoughts.
Thanks for being a dick when I was asking a legitimate question. I've seen other people say that a refurb heat sink is the safest thing you can buy refurb since the main function is to dissipate heat through conduction, so I was trying to figure out why there's such a difference in opinions. There are no moving parts (aside from a fan which you can tell when it goes bad). I get what you're saying, but metal is metal, and shouldn't change priorities in heat conduction because it was fixed. I'd venture to guess that a refurb hard drive or processor is worse, but what do I know.

Edit: I would also say PSU is much more important as well...
Of all the components in a build, the heat sink is the one thing that I would absolutely insist on getting new, not refurbished.

Now this is great timing, I just cleaned my 1156 case and made upgrades yesterday and was thinking about replacing the loud fan. Thanks TDMVP!

This better than the Intel stock fan on socket 1150/1155? I'm using the stock fan (intel i3-4xxx) on my mini-itx freenas box. Not sure if it's worth the hassle to swap it out for this. edit: NM, just looked at the reviews for non-refurbished and people were complaining that it was louder than stock fans. Still a great deal being FAR if you have no other options. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Pro...6835103086

Gees only aluminum contact for cpu? Maybe this cooler would be good for skylake desktop cpus since they don't come with a heatsink, not sure that if this supports lga1151 though.

3-Pin connector! On older boards you could choose between voltage and PWM control, or it would be automatic, on newer ones they always assume it will be 4-pin and so 3-pin works on max speed all the time. You have better chances of connecting this to CHA_FaN header that has automatic control depending on CPU temperature, like most MSI boards have.

Then there is always this:

Retail skylake chips come with a cooler except for the unlocked K versions, and I wouldn't suggest this for an unlocked chip. 1150 coolers will work fine on 151 boards - the mounting holes are the same.

It doesn't look like this will perform much better than the stock cooler though, but might be a good idea to have around as a spare if needed.

You're either naive or trolling and completely miss the reservation most have about refurbs; used products that were broken, now repaired, being resold.

Why take the risk of buying a used/refurbished part that is integral to your machine running? If your heat sink fails your PC overheats and shuts down or is damaged.

Personally, I wouldn't take the risk either.

Shoprunner doesn't show as an option. I took it all the way to checkout & still doesn't show up. Still, for $1.99 it's probably worth it.
