I920 cooling stock vs other Tags: CPUs Overclocking Cooling Intel i7 Product Last response: January 16, 2010 6:32 PM in CPUs Share sbcharlie January 15, 2010 11:39:58 PM Using a I7 920, not overclocked. The stock cooler ok, or buy an aftermarket one? And if aftermarket, which one? again not overclocking as really just no need. There is an artoicle from 2008 on toms cpu cooling review that stated aftermarket coolers not needed if not overclocking. Also stated 45%, at that time, coolers didnt work or were not worth the cash anyway. any advice? I am going to use artic silver also. More about : i920 cooling stock dpaul8 January 15, 2010 11:56:22 PM If you are not overclocking, you do not need an aftermarket cooler. However, I recommend one anyway because the Intel stock heat sink fan is noisy and it has poor performance. For $30 (free shipping) you can pick up a Hyper 212 that does a very good job of cooling your processor, and it is very quiet. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
