This will do just fine for stock or low level overclocking. -Wolf sends m 0 l SR-71 Blackbird February 7, 2013 10:32:43 PM FX CHIPS run very hot and the stock HSF is poor i would get an aftermarket cooler. m 0 l Related resources Need a good but cheap CPU cooler. - Forum need a good low profile cpu cooler any ideas - Forum Need good air cpu cooler for full tower - Forum Need Good CPU Cooler - Forum Need a good CPU Cooler - Forum Can't find your answer ?
