Unhappy Help on Cooling?

I'm a first time builder and i'm reading alot about heat problems from other members systems. I'm thinking about going with an asus mobo P4C800C w/ P4 3.2 or 3.4Ghz processor.If i need a fan or some kind of heatsink as they seem to be called around here, what will i possibly need or what are my options.
Thanks in advance

depends... If you aren't into overclocking, then you will probably be just fine w/ the stock fan, since Intel usually has decent stock fans. Be sure that you buy a retail processor though if you want a stock fan w/ it.
on the other hand, if you want to overclock, or are just worried about heat, then buy a decent heatsink to fit your processor. If you do this, buy your processor OEM and save the money, since the only thing extra you get from retail is the stock fan, and maybe a warranty. If you are going to OC, your warranty is useless anyway.

a couple quick ideas:

nope. download motherboard monitor 5, great for monitoring cpu temp, case temp, etc, provided your motherboard has the necessary sensors on it, which most do.
