Are 3rd Party CPU Fans Necessary?

So I have an AMD Richland 4.1 ghz processor. I was wondering if the heat sink that it came with is good enough. When playing BF4 my CPU is around 40-48 degrees Celsius. Is this ok? If not what is the best CHEAP fan that I don't have to disassemble my motherboard for. thanks!

    Only if you want to OC.

    ~50℃ is fine.
  2. 40-48C is fine and if that is the highest you are seeing the temps get, that is fine. While the stock AMD heatsinks aren't recommended for overclocking uses, they should be okay if you have a well ventilated system.
