Stock FX8350 heat sink performance vs hyper evo 212

Awhile back I asked for opinions on different coolers and was pleased with the results. I was curious what the difference in performance would be between these two heatsinks? That is to say how much of a temp drop could I expect by upgrading to an evo212. Would it be worth it?

Edit: I've also been told Artic Silver will further drop the temperature. Can anyone confirm this?

    I've got no confirmation if Arctic Silver will provide better thermal paste quality than most others.

    Here the comparison of the stock AMD cooler vs. the Hyper 212 Evo:

    The Hyper 212 Evo is significantly better and is a lot more silent. There is a lot of difference in sound.
  3. The stock heatsink with the 8350 is junk. An eve 212 would greatly improve your temps, and make much less noise doing it.
