I5 & cooler

Going to be putting an i5 3570K on an ASUS MB for new build.
Considering fitting a CPU cooler ..

I am not intending to overclock (at least for now) but thought I could/should fit CPU cooler at time of build.
Alpenföhn Matterhorn Pure Edition CPU Cooler as it's on offer.


In that case I don't need the stock Intel cooler ... can you buy the i5 without the stock cooler ? or do just have to accept it as waste.

  1. Unless you buy an OEM part, the Retail box of the i5-3570k will come with a CPU cooler. So you're just going to have to accept it as waste :lol:
  2. As long as you are not overclocking the stock cooler should work fine for you. If you are looking for a quiet cooler then you can look at something like the Corsair H60 or get the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo and replace the 120mm fan with a quiet model.
