It's not all about the number of heatpipes.

Nothing really, you can add another fan, but it doesn't change the fact that zalman coolers aren't that good.

Thought newegg returns were free until after 30 days or something?

What makes a heatsink better in general?
How well the base contacts with the cpu, how well heat is transferred to the fins on the heatsink, airflow through the heatsink, etc.
Lots of heatpipes can help, but by themselves they aren't an indicator of how a cooler is going to perform.

the best coolers are the noctua d-14 and the cogage arrow atm. Some of the cnpsx10 series actually perform ok, but they are loud coolers as you have learnt the hard way. The best medium sized coolers that wont affect ram compatibility are the venomous X/ultra 120 , noctua u12p and the titan fenrir.The good thing about gettin a venomous X is you can get your own fan with the DB rating you desire, they are also fairly cheap coolers.

I'm sure the Noctua is a good heatsink but it's a Monstrosity. The Cogage Arrow is a joke that's been done before with a different name.
