If you are not overclocking (and you can on a non-K 3770), and your case is not suffocated, you will be absolutely fine. The stock cooler is fairly quiet too.

2 things to consider:

1) Intel CPUs since the first generation of the Core i-series have been able to handle high temperatures on the cpu die due to the silicon formulations Intel used. Conversely, Intel CPUs are not very fond of very low temperatures, like with liquid nitrogen and below (compared to AMD's silicon).

2) Even with a fantastic cooler, the Ivy Bridge, when overclocked can get upwards of 90 degrees celsius with no problems.

Additional consideration:

Games don't use CPU cores that hard, especially since you got 4 cores and 8 threads. No games will stress your CPU hard enough (all cores, all threads) for a long long time.

So, I'd say, you are set.

I would OC little it can (and maximize its value) and get better cooler.

Use the second, that's the correct slot.

U have 2 sticks, so use second and fourth, I checked your manual to be sure.

Check the section 2-5.

U don't want this : ))
