Hey forumers, is it ok to use the stock heatsink that comes with the i5 3570k if im not gona OC it right away for maybe 4-6months of use? Im not gona overclock the settings on my z77 as well right away... 2nd question is , is the stock heatsink fine if i overclock my GPU? does that have a direct effect on the overall temperature for my system?? Thanks for helping this youngster ranked guy!

The stock cooler is adequate for cooling the CPU at stock speeds.
The cooler on the CPU wont have an impact to how far you can overclock the GPU, though you might indirectly raise the CPU temperatures by dumping extra heat from the GPU into the case.
