Finally got all my parts, ready to build,
E6300 CPU, DS3-R Mobo, Ballistix (2gb) Ram, and, the 8800gts
. Should get a bit for my unopened 8600gt. But before I start anything I have a small Q.
I bought an Arctic Cooling Alpine 7 Cooler, but now I can't decide to use it or the stock. Its near silent but the thermal resistance is 0.26 Degrees Celcius/Watt, as opposed to 0.23 for the stock. Does this mean it will run hotter (No idea what Thermal resistance is). Also, use silver thermal paste or supplied pad?
