Intel i7 3770 stock cooler?

Hello, so here is my PC build for gaming, recording, rendering, and streaming. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/En8u So I don't plan to overclock at all (Which is why I got the non k version) and I'm wondering if the stock cooler will be fine for me, or if I should get something like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo, because I have heard that the the stock cooler is garbage.

  1. Stock cooler is garbage.

    I would advice you to get a cheap high performing water cooler like the Cooler Master Seidon 120m.

    Take a look at a review I tried to make of it.

    My max temperatures went from 87 celsius to 59 celsius.

    It performs as a H70, but cost the same as a H40. That is value, mate! :)
  2. definatly, those stock coolers are designed to do their job, you won't exceed a temperature of 50°C on max load.

    My i5-3570 seems to hit 87 celsius with stock cooler at 100% load.

    More heat = Less life time. It's that simple.

    Anything above 67.4 isn't recommended by Intel.
  4. Will this cooler do good enough to keep it cool? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835186134
