I am using the stock cooler, according to aida64 it idles at around 40-45 degrees,
However the temps for the individual cores are much lower, around 20 degrees. Which one is correct? No overclocking. I know the cooler is installed properly, Would an aftermarket cooler solve the problem? If I get a 212 I would have to remove the mobo, as my case doesn't have a hole for the bracket. Would this do the trick assuming I am not over clocking? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Really, you should use the CPU temp for reference, its the overall temps of the silicone. 40-45 degrees are acceptible, but an aftermarker cooler will definitely bring you temps down to around 25-35 degrees.

Good to hear, would the cooler linked above do the trick?

Nope, your processor will generate too much heat for that unit, if you can afford it, i would get the CM Hyper 210 Plus or the newer 210 plus evo, both are great coolers that will handle this cpu with and without overclocking.

keep in mind that the socket temp is sometimes labeled as CPU Temp. The socket is usually about 10 degrees hotter than the cpu itself, sometimes more. So long as your thermal paste was properly applied or you didn't seat the cooler then remove it a few times, then the stock cooler should work fine, as long as you don't want to overclock.

However the Hyper 212 EVO isn't very expensive and is a great cooler. Even if you don't overclock, a cooler cpu is a better cpu (within reason of course)
