Will be building a system around a 2500k or 2600k (haven't decided). These come with their own heatsink/fan combos. I want a quiet system, and will be using a Sonata IV case. Will the stock setup suffice, or do I need to go for something else? If the latter, any suggestions?
Assuming no/mild overclock, the stock fan will be OK, but you could get something quieter (if it's worth $30 or $40 to you) If you have an actively cooled GPU that will be louder than the CPU fan anyway.
