Additional Heatsinks

Hello everyone,
I'm building a new computer and I'm planning on buying the Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727). Is the heat sink provided with the CPU sufficient or is it worth buying a separate heatsink? My last AMD CPU was fine with the included heatsink.
Thanks,
Bob

  1. the stock heatsink is good enough

    if you plan on overclocking you should buy an aftermarket cooler
    cheap but good cooler

  2. AMD probably spend loads of money on making sure the bundled heatsink is sufficient, I suspect the 50c it takes to get it right is worth it compared to a stack or returned processors.
  3. The stock HS will do if you use it at stock speeds.

    If you OC to any significant extent, then it won't and you'll need an aftermarket solution.
