Default How to tell if a cpu cooler is good?

I'm building a computer I got most of the essentials for it. I was wondering how to tell if a CPU cooler is good from different ones? Is the fan speed or something? I was wondering if my X6 Elite by cooler master was good for gaming and keeping its "cool".Hope I make sense XD

Download Speccy and you'll get the temps of the components including the CPU and more.
