    Hi.
    This would be better than AMD stock cooler (R5-2600 R5-2600X) ?

    I bought v4 for my i5 2500k and it was a awesome upgrade.
    Unless you're space restricted I suggest looking at coolers with 120mm fans, as they are more powerful and silent.
    That said, this new version has a new fan, might be very silent.

    Yeah. I am using similar cooler for my 2500k@4.5GHz and it keeps temps below 80C on prime95 burn test.

    However, unless you overclock CPU a lot and hitting thermal threshold or above 80C, I wouldn't really recommend to replace it.
