Is there any need for aftermarket CPU cooler?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I have purchased the AMD FX4100 CPU with Asus Sabertooth 990FX board The Processor comes with Stock cooler Is it sufficient for cooling? Many people told me that to go for 3rd party CPU coolers. I am not going to overclock the CPU .

It will work fine with no overclocking.

If you want to overclock, or wish to reduce heat on the CPU then get an aftermarket cooler.

If you aren't overclocking then the stock cooler should suffice. But if in the future you do decide to overclock you will want something better before attempting.

No overclock?

No problem. Keep the stock cooler

But why a sabertooth when you're not overclocking?

If you're not overclocking and your case has decent airflow, you should be fine. If you have the money, though, cooler is always better, just sayin' smile.gif
