Is cooling for this build sufficient? (Silencio 550)

I just purchased a prebuilt system by iBuypower using the Coolermaster Silencio 550 Case, and I am wondering if stock cooling will be sufficient:

Intel i5 3570k
ATI Radeon HD 7870
Both these parts are fairly energy efficient, the case comes with two fans (front, rear) 120mm, 800rpm, and what appears to be a stock CPU cooler.

I am not going to OC but I do a lot of gaming, will this cooling be sufficient or should I add another 120mm fan or a better CPU cooler?


Here is the link to the product on Newegg, I assume that since it is prebuilt it should be ok but I want to be sure. Thanks!

It'll do just fine. Just make sure to clean off the bunnies after a few months or so. The cpu fan doesn't look stock its thermal take so they took into consideration you "might/will" overclock, thats nice.
