  1. the stock cooler is kool but since it is a 130watt cpu u might want to pick up a hyper 212
  2. Thanks
    I hear a lot about the hyper 212 is it really the best avaliable?

    I'd definitely grab an aftermarket cooler if you're overclocking. The Hyper 212+ offers good performance for its price and is highly recommended by a lot of people on these forums (and others for that matter). There are better coolers available but in my opinion the performance difference doesn't justify the price difference.
