  1. Yeah it's pretty good except the cooler. Try to pick up a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus/EVO which is significantly better and is even more recommended if you want to overclock the CPU.
  2. ^+1, with that board and cpu you want to overclock at least a bit and a better cooler would be recommended

    Is it a bad cooler??
  4. If you're running at stock speeds its no problem, but if you want to overclock, might want to get a better one.

    This is an old benchmark but still applicable http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/lga-1156-heatsink,2535-14.html
