Just finished my first build with no hiccups! Overclocked everything and I am getting idle temps around 50C with the stock cooler, I'm a little concerned about the CPU on load though as I've ran a couple of benchmark tools and seen it hit 90C+. Anyone know of a good aftermarket cooler? I'm looking for something that is fairly compact as I need it to fit in my mid ATX case. Thanks!

Processor: i5 3570k OC@4.2

Case: Rosewill Blackhawk mid ATX

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H-WB

GPU: MSI Twin Frozr 7950

the BlackHAWK isn't that compact that a Hyper 212 EVO won't fit in it. Get it. :)

Thanks! Also, I've been reading about this Arctic Silver stuff, would that also be worthy of purchase, or is the included thermal compound good enough?

Included TIM is better cuz it is cheaper if you decide to buy extra and has zero curing times.
