Default i7 heatsink - options?

i looked on newegg and saw 1 heatsink for LGA1366 i7 CPUs... will the stock cooler work fine that comes with the processor? i don't plan on overclocking.

Some old LGA 775 heatsinks have a bracket that you can buy that will allow you to use it with a LGA 1366 CPU. For example say I wanted to use this heatsink: Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks for LGA 1366, but it is only made for LGA 775 I could buy this bracket for it: Newegg.com - XIGMATEK ACK-I7361 CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks and that would allow it to work with LGA 1366.

That kit does LGA 775 to LGA 1366 for that heatsink that I showed you. If you are not overclocking you probably won't need anything more then the stock heatsink though.

The stock heatsink is decent, as long as your case is good on vents, I have an old case with an i7 in, and 6gb ram and such, idles at about 41C now,but it has no intake and no exhaust capabilities, so literally its a hot box.

With proper air flow it should be fine- not overclocking.

Also- don't remove the thermal paste on the stock cooler- it works very well despite being "stock grease" on par with Antec 5, so there's literally no reason to remove/scrape it off to replace it with something of near similar performance.

With my new case I expect to drop degrees C a whole lot, some stated the max load being 72 right now, dropping to 56 with a good vent case.


And honestly due to the size of the heatsinks out there for these babies... If I do OC, I would just go liquid cool anyway, take up much less space and much easier to work with in the long run.
