no problem on the hdd, whatever suits you.

if you werent gonna OC, the stock HSF would work, but since you plan to do some OCing, i would recommend getting an aftermarket one.

this looks like a good one that will fit on the 1156 socket. - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 92mm Fluid Dynamic CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

I have a i5 with stock HSF. I can OC it to 3.2GHz with temps going up to 73C. If you're planning to OC only a bit then th stck HST will be fine, otherwise you'll need a aftermarket HSF.

I know that the I7's have a much high tj max than the core2quads but the best idea is to keep the temparture as low as possible. I would feel bad if the load temps where even close to 75C.. Even though I know thats not too bad for i7's.

Its probably not as relevant but back in the day when I had my Q6600 at 3.7 Ghz I never let it get over 65C.
