Fx 6300 after market heatsink

Ok, I'm getting the FX 6300, I'd like to clock it to 4.1 (Turbo mode?) I'm wondering if I can stick with the stock heatsink for this, or should I buy an aftermarket heatsink?

I'm looking at this one. I've already bought my case, and from further reading I'm not sure that the Hyper 212 EVO would fit properly in my case.

So, the above posted heatsink is smaller than the evo, and should fit inside of my case. Is this heatsink worth it, or should I just go stock and worry about a better heatsink if I upgrade my case later?

case I bought while it was still on sale.

    I have the coolermaster elite 430 case, which is smaller than yours, and the hyper 212 evo will fit in mine. It looks like it would be a tight fit but the evo should fit. Stock amd coolers get the job done but are extremely loud and dont cool the greatest. If you are worried about the fit you can measure inside your case for the dimensions of the cooler. I would highly recommend the evo if you can fit it. If you are stuck with a stock fan you probably wont be able to overclock.

    Thanks, sorry my first response was deleted. Yea, measured outside, and it's 7.5". I'll buy the evo, plan on upgrading case quickly, won't be a loss if it doesn't fit at first.
  3. Sounds like a good plan. The evo can be mounted vertically or horizontal if needed.
