Another Thermal Paste for Stock Cooler?

Hello.

Just a quick question here: Do I need to apply another thermal paste for CPU Stock Coolers ( You know, with pre-applied thermal paste)?

I can't really find an answer on the net so I thought of asking here myself.

Thanks!

    Hi, No, you don't. But if using the PC for gaming, or other demanding applications, I suggest installing an aftermarket CPU cooler.

    Well, what will happen when I use the stock cooler for gaming and demanding applications/programs?
  4. Nothing much, it will just be a few degrees hotter than with aftermarket cooler, nothing serious.
  5. It will be louder and temperatures higher.
