    a better choice is to buy two high end fans and mount them in a push-pull configuration on your current (more then decent) cooler

    I see your cooler as supporting 92mm fans; buy two Noctua 92mm fans (NF-B9) and you'll get much better thermals

    The Freezer 7 Pro, while decent, is no match for the TRUE's far superior cooling performance. Pair the TRUE with a decent fan like the Yate Loon D12SL-12 or the Scythe SFF21F and you'll have a fantastic cooling solution that is also very quiet.

    That being said, since the TRUE is a tad on the expensive side, you can also go with the Xigmatek HDT-S1283. But I recommend buying a Thermalright screw bracket for the latter, the default installation kit isn't that great. But that's just about the only gripe I have with it. Cooling performance is on par with the TRUE.

    It's worth the upgrade IMO.
