Default CPU fans

Hey guys...
I'm getting a Intel 820 Processor and don't plan on overclocking it. Do I need a aftermarket heatsink/fan such as a Zalman CPU cooler?

well if your not gona overclock then stock cooling is fine. The reason there is aftermarket coolers is for people who overclock mostly.
