It will be perfectly fine. You could oc on stock volts and you'd still be fine even with that motherboard.

Uhg. The price is way too high on those. I wouldnt pay over $30 bucks for one. They are around $25 at most Frys and around $30 on most websites. But it should do the trick. There are far better ones fro the 40-50 dollar range though. Which is how much that CM Hyper 212 cost. Just find the 212 for cheaper somewhere else.

the factory heatsink is fine. i think thats a better choice of a cpu for that board also. but if you where looking at overclocking i would suggest going with the gigabyte 880gma-ud2h. it has 140w cpu support and is also a great overclocker. good luck with your build.

Yea, this computer is for someone else so in the end, I feel much safer not overclocking, this CPU seems perfect without any need to unlock.

I have a AMD test sample 840 and a heat sink I reviewed better than the 212. Pm me. The 840 is 100MHz faster than the one you are looking at at stock speed.

Oh, then definitely keep stock heat sink and fan. That way it will give some relief to the VRM's as well.
