I just ordered a custom pc and it has a AMD XP2200+ in the box. My question is do I need extra cooling for this cpu ? Isn't the cooler AMD ships with it sufficient ? I'm a total noob when it comes to these matters but I read a lot of posts about cooling problems with the xp2200 and I'm starting to worry a bit.
System specs will be:
Case 350 watts AMD 2200+ Asus A7V8X mobo Asus V9280 Ti4200 128mb 768mb 333ddr ram Maxtor 60GB 7200rpm ata133 Creative SB Live player Lite-on dvd-rom player Lite-on 40x12x48 writer

If you don't plan on overclocking,the stock heatsink will do just fine.
Thanks for the quick reply. No I'm not into overclocking, so your answer is reasuring.
