Yea you do... Clarkdale coolers are crap and my pinkey nail is thicker and unless you want 70c load at 4ghz get something like a mugen 2.

Thought 32nm didn't get really all that hot. Better safe than sorry though

70C at 4.0HT load is perfectly fine. To OP, if you really wanna burn your money...go with a cheap good cooler like 212+. Otherwise....spend your money on something else. I originally got this v8 for my 530's 4.0HT, but it was loading at 50c so I felt like I wasted a lot of money on the v8. That's why I upgraded to the 930 so this cooler could actually do it's job.

Don't bother with the V8, overpriced (had one).

32nm doesn't get all that hot compared to 45nm at the same clocks... But any/all processors are going to get hot when you OC them 30%+.

My Xigmatek HDT-S1283 is great, keeps my Athlon cool, not sure if they make one that fits LGA1156 though.

Ok, consensus is V8 is a rip, so now Im going for the Tuniq Tower 120, or the 212, trying to decide.

Actually, 212+ looks really good, cheap and effective, plus a lot of positive reviews. Going to get that one.

Are you getting a GPU?
I have a 9800GT already, planning to upgrade. And I switched the PSU, probably gonna get a Corsair 480w for $50

EDIT:
the 430w only had 2 SATA Do. Not. Want.

Good plan on the Corsair.
I agree that Evga cheap boards suck...but I was giving him options if he wanted to get a crap MB. If he wants a good mobo that will guarantee him a good overclock, you GOTTA go gigabyte.
