Question Need help with coolers ASAP guys

Hey guys,
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?

You need scrap off the stock paste and use TP like Arctic Silver 5. Thermal resistance only means the amount of heat that can be transfered across the substance. The stock fan can transfer more heat but can't get rid of it as well as the aftermarket one. The aftermarket one can get rid is more heat that it transfers from the CPU.

EDIT: I just looked up the HSF. That doesn't look too beefy and it might compare the same as the stock.

LMAO, that piece of soda can will not help you OC.

Here are some good fans:
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - Retail
Newegg.com - ZALMAN 9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler - Retail

You must be willing to spend some cash in order to OC well. Even if you don't want to OC, you need to get a decent fan to keep the CPU cool.
