planning to get an i5 4440 and a gtx 760 for some light gaming, nothing too hardcore since I do not have the luxury of a big budget. I have a few questions, is the stock cooler any good? I wont OC obviously because the cpu is locked. I live in the philippines and the avg temps in my room are about 34-36 deg celsius, and i've had my laptop shut down on me several times due to overheating (note this is an ASUS G73J gaming laptop and airflow is great. for a laptop that is) would the stock cooler on the i5 4440 suffice or should I get a CM Hyper 212X?

oh and, If you do recommend that I get an aftermarket CPU cooler, is the hyper 212X overkill? should I get a cheaper but still efficient cpu cooler?

Intel box coolers suck at cooling even if the CPU is running stock.Changing it to an aftermarket one is a must.

The stock cooler for the CPU should be fine, if you plan on OC it, then you will need better air flow. If you are able to afford a CM hyper fan, it will not be a bad idea. I would recommend it. I would look into buying a more affordable and efficient fan for your CPU.

His CPU is not a K-series processor so no OC'ing for now.

I use the stock fan on my 4670K (haven't overclocked yet) and it is fine. Idol at 35-37C, but my ambients are also a lot better than yours (I'm in Canada). Given that it's +10c more where you live, you might want an aftermarket cooler for that alone.
