heat sink & fan

Is the fan and heat sink that comes with a pentium 4 3.2ghz adequate or do I need a third party unit?

  1. If you're going to overclock, consider another, higher performance cooler. If you're going to run it normally (no o/c), then the stock Intel one should be fine.

    I didn't think that you could squeeze much of any OC out of a 3.2GHz P4. :\

    No offense, but that's an awfully silly question. Do you honestly think that Intel could offer a three year waranty on the chip if their heatsink <i>wasn't</i> adequate?
