It's possible to get gain using one, but generally reserved
for those who know a lot about them or are willing to spend
a lot for a pre-made kit. Unnecessary unless you're
overclocking or running in an extreme environment (very hot
room, desert, etc).

.... then don't use one, until you know for certain you have
a situation that needs one, and even in such a situation it
might be as well to just try water cooling first.

How about just getting a normal heatsink that has received
good reviews? They run hot but not impossibly hot, there
are millions of systems out in the world running fine
without anything exotic to cool them.
