easier for your mobo to oc. But it might not even reach the e2160 speeds. I have trouble getting mine passed 3.4 I think it was veedub that had the same problem. Took us a boat load of vcore to get passed 2.9 which can run stock all day long 9 hours prime.

Do I absolutely need an after-market cooler or is the stock adequate?

For overclocking you will need an aftermarket cooler...

Ok. Any suggestions? Don't want to spend over $25.

Anyone had good luck with this?

I don't know. I didn't see any size specs on either the newegg spec page or the rosewill spec page. My mATX case is a minitower and quite big for mATX. Here it is:

Dimensions: 15.4'' x 7.1'' x 14.8''

*edit*
I am probably going to spend the extra extra and get the Arctic Cooling Freezer.

Ok. Thanks for the help!

The Xigmatek cooler I linked you to is much, MUCH better than the Arctic Freezer
