FX 8350 question about temperatre

This is my first post in tomshardware. I 'm new in pc gaming. I'm gonna buy a new desktop this week. I ended up in FX 8350, but I've read that some people have problems with high temperatures. I'm not going to overclock it. Do I have any problem?? Do I need an after market cooler?? Is intel (i5 3570) more reliable? I don't have past experience so I really don't know what to do and I have to give my order to the store.

I'm sorry if this question has been answered before. Please give me the link and just delete my post.
Sorry for my mistakes!

  1. In a short sense: No there won't be prolems with your temperatures, especially if you're not going to overclock.

    However IF you do plan on overclocking I would advise you to get an aftermarket cooler.

    IF not, then your stock cooler will do the job just fine.
  2. Ok thanks! So you suggest to move on in my purchase?? My case is a cheap one: Αerocool Strike X one Midi Tower.
  3. Yeah go for it.

    And if you do at some point decide that you do want to overclock, you can just replace the stock cooler with an aftermarket one and voila, you're all set
  4. Thank you very much my friend! I don't know a lot about pcs!!
