  1. I would not use the standard cooler, it may not be designed to handle a hotter CPU. Get a retail version of the new CPU it will come with a decent heatsink / fan.

    Any top brand of paste will do it's job if you don't overclock, and with a Dell, you probably can't anyway. I use Artic Silver myself when I build computers.
  2. if you look on how it is designed i cant do much with it so i might as well get a thermal grease that will overclock i may buy it a better 500w modular cpu and do some moding

    my price limit is $550 but i cant fit any graphics card over 6 inches
