    Not a bad set up, but I would have wen't with a better board that could support DDR3, and a better processor.

    Why would you want an aftermarket one if you weren't OCing?

    First of all the stock intel cooler is terrible and second its a gaming pc with 4 cores, why the hell not? It will remove any chance of a bottle neck.

    Uhhhhh what?

    The stock cooler does just fine as long as you aren't OCing. Infact I've seen people get decent OCs and the stock cooler worked for it fine. The fact that it's 4 cores does not mean the temperature is going to blast sky high.

    And a bottleneck is where your entire system is limited by one piece of hardware... IE you have a crappy CPU, plenty of RAM, and a beastly GPU.

    The stock cooler is fine for me. The temps don't get to high. I actually have the cpu OCed to 3.0 ghz and temps are still fine so I don't see why I would have to get a new cooler. I'm not going to OC any more.

    Well OCing does have it's downsides such as how it takes more power, and how it decreases the life of the CPU. (Althought to be honest, most CPUs are built to last way beyond the point of replacement...)

    The ****ty thing about the stock cooler is how it is mounted. When I was building my computer, I tipped right side up, and was fiddling with my expansion bays, then all of the sudden 2 pegs of the cooler fell out and it was tipping over.

    Yeah it is the worst to install. I was so nervous doing it because of all the noises it was making.
