Default keep stock fan?

Hi, I'm building myself a new computer, but I haven't built one in a few years, so I don't know much about current products. I'm probably going to get an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ or 3200+. Should I stay with the stock cpu cooling fan? If no, what's a good brand for a new fan?

Stock is fine if you are not planning to do any overclocking.

AMD stock fan's work pretty good,But like Richard said if you are going to overclock you need something better,Zalman's are pretty good if you want to OC it.

take it from me....
Build a computer that is "Quiet".... the fan is just one noisy part.... as a PC has multiple noisy fans

I never thought of the noise my custom built PC would produce.... its loud!

if you are interested

Good Luck
