  1. Best answer
    If you don't plan to overclock your CPU then keep the stock products. If you plan to overclock then I would recommend getting an aftermarket heatsink and fan plus for thermal paste the best is arctic silver. Hope that answers your question.
  2. The thermal paste and cooler included will get the job done. The job of the paste is to fill the microscopic groves on the cpu, to transfer heat from the cpu to the heatsink to be dispersed. If you plan on overclocking at all get aftermaket, or if you dont want to deal with noises. The stock cooler can keep it cool at stock speeds but is loud. Something like the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO would be best if you plan to lightly/moderate OC. Also its a good buy if you dont like a loud fan. Arctic Silver 5 is one of the best pastes to get.

    i don't want to overclock. I want my PC cool because my PC runs for 1-15 hours continuously. is in-box heat-sink is good for cooling and is it come with thermal paste applied already?
  4. If you dont plan to overclock the stock cooler, which comes with paste applied, will run fine on your pc. It will keep it cool enough, probably for even 24/7 use. They do become loud at high speeds, but they get the job done. If sound isnt an issue, its just about all you need.

  7. The rest of the components wont need to be cooled in any special way as long as you have good airflow in the case.

    Your Welcome! Keep your stock heatsink and thermal paste it will do fine since you won't be overclocking. HDD can get warm since it ha moving parts but shouldn't worry you at all. Only reason they get warm is because they have moving parts. Unlike SSD which have no movng parts so they remain cool all the time. HDD are still great for the price per GB ratio and good when it comes to more of the simple tasks such as photos, music and movies. Unless you're gaming a lot I wouldn't recommend spending money on SSD since they're pricey.

    very very thanks again and also tell me best 4gb RAM for my new build.
  10. Just make sure it's at least 1600MHz with at least CAS Latency 9 really otherwise good brands are corsair, G.Skill, and Crucial you know the drill.
