ok i'm not a silence freak but i heard somewhere that amd's stock coolers are crazy loud is that true?

p.s i'll mostly be playing cpu intensive games like bf3 and skyrim. also i have no intention to overclock this cpu

Stock coolers can get loud at high loads, being the silence freak you are you could pick up a decent AM3+ cooler for cheap

It matters on your case and gpu, as i play on my bro in laws 8150/HD6870 once in a while that uses the stock cooler the gpu fan is prob the loudest thing under load lol, but the cooler gets up there. Also his raidmax seiran has some bigger fans that dont run to fast to be noisy but even at idle cnq off u can feel the heat coming off the cooler and surrounding areas, so i recommend even a cheap $15-30 cooler like the cooler master tx3 as if its anything like the tx2 uses the stock amd coolers mounting kit so its rlly easy installation and cools great, and that was a old power hungry athlon 6400+

You're asking a VERY subjective question. Last week someone wanted to know how to keep their mouse cable from making so much noise when it rubs against their desk.
