Yes but would you tell them that you used one, and why would you need to return your CPU anyway, Unless you OC. Just tell a wee white lie.

Big Typhoon and AS5 VERY GOOD combo.

There is no reason to get the FX60 if you arent going to overclock it. It is made to overclock, so you need the AS5 and an HSF.

I use the XP-120 on my FX-55, and I can idle around 40 after reaching 3.0ghz, its a great fan if you can handle it. If you can get yourself a Palaro(sp?) fan blowing 125cfm on top of it, you will be set!

guys, btw Cwiz's budget is around 4k, and he doesn want to overclock, and he wants a "beast" of a machine. But if he does learn how to OC in the near future, the Unlocked multipliers would be a great asset.
