I am purchasing the Intel Core i7-930 processor http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115225&cm_re=Intel_Core_i7-930-_-19-115-225-_-Product. My question is, is the heatsink and fan that this processor comes with enough and good quality, or should I buy a separate one? Same question for this AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103727&cm_re=AMD_Phenom_II_X4_965_Black_Edition-_-19-103-727-_-Product

The stock coolers work fine if you're running at stock speeds. You'll need an aftermarket cooler if you want to overclock.

Thanks, I don't plan to overclock so I'll just go with the provided one.
