Default Artic Silver 5

One more questions . I am getting a Zalman (CNPS7000B-CU) super flower cooler and wondered whether it was worth buying the Artic Silver 5 gel or not? I aren't going to overclock.

Cheers.

If you're not overclocking, there is no need to spend $50+ dollars on a cooler. The stock cooler is good for overclocking as it is...

i use AS5 in all my builds and a lil tiny tube will last a long time so i would say yes its worth it, even if you don toverclock, the zalman cooler will give you better temps and you can turn the fan on silent so your system wont sound soo loud.
