Core i7 950 Cooling
Jan 6, 2011, 5:40 PM
I am building a new gaming rig. Upgrading some new componets and keeping some old. I have ordered:
Core i7 950
CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
EVGA GEForce 580 GTX
I was wondering if the stock cooling system/heatsink for the cpu was good engough? Probably won't OC (not for a while anyway). Keeping in mind that this is going in an older case...Antec Sonota II.

If you have some money left, get the Cooler Master Hyper 212+, great cooler for the money. But if you haven't got any money left, and won't OC at all, then don't buy one.
