Want to buy Phenom II X4 955 BE for new build; should I get a new fan?

Looking at the reviews, most agree that the stock heatsink/fan is pretty terrible. Is there an affordable option to get something above stock? No, I do not plan to overclock, but neither do I want a high-temp CPU in my rig (I plan for this thing to last for a while).

  1. Will that fan fit into a HAF 912 case?
  2. I think it should. Do you plan to OC the cpu? if not, the stock cooler works fine.
