So i was just wondering since im building my first gaming pc soon if i NEED to buy a seperate cpu cooler if i dont plan to overclock. I havent really decided on a build yet, but i will probably either go with an AMD fx-6300 with an Asus motherboard or an intel i5-3330 with an asrock motherboard. i dont really plan on overclocking (atleast not right away) since i dont know too much about computers and dont wanna screw up my system.

Anyway, ive seen a lot of builds that buy seperate coolers and i just wanna know if i can use the stock one for gaming as well.

The stock cooler will be fine if you aren't overclocking.

the stock cooler will be fine, but even a $20 aftermarket cooler will do wonders if you dont OC
i stock cooler is loud where you can buy a better, quieter cooler for around $20
like the coolMaster evo!

The stock cooler is enough when you are not overclocking.
when you overclocks then your cpu gets more hotter than its normal temperature,
then to keep it cool , you need a different cooler rather than stock cooler but stock cooler is built for non-overclocked CPUs.

I'd say yes..Computer stuff loves cold.The cooler you keep your hardware the better.
