yes it should be fine i'm using stock on my...would be messed up if they didn't though.
It'll be different for everyone I'm sure. I don't recommend it, but going a little over, up to about 3.3GHz to 3.5GHz on stock seems pretty stable and I've yet to have a problem. I'm up to 3.7 (3690MHz) on stock yet and it's been stable for a few days running my games.

It depends on the chip obviously, not everyone's going to have the same or better results. The cooling in your case is a major factor as well. I have one side fan and 2x fans (front/back) pushing air to the back and out of the case.
so stock cooler should be fine for no overclocking
Yep stock cooler will work just fine.

Stock is designed to work with stock speeds, so you will be fine . And besides 940 stock cooler is awesome

yes best stock cooler i've ever seen still its not ment for big oc's i got up to 3.78 befor mine hit 65c... over amd recomended limit i run mine at 3.3 while playing games and it never gets over 58
I wouldn't chance it at all! I have had 2 different stock amd cpu fans fail on me with AMD 9850BE's and burn up the cpus, both while gaming... This was on 2 different motherboards as well, so i know it couldn't have been the motherboard jacking up the fans or something... Just not worth the risk... A noctua is only $60 on the egg and a true isn't to much more after the purchase of a fan which is a VERY small price to pay to make sure you have quality stuff that won't fail on you... BTW, after the 2nd one burned on me, i will never have anything other than a push/pull setup on my heatsinks, so if one goes out i still have no worries!

Just my 2 cents, think about it...
