(crashes head on to keyboard)

the Stock Intel cooler sucks!! SUCKS SUCKS SUCKS!!

thats why I always recommend the AF7 because it keeps it cool (unlike the Stock cooler that keeps it really near to max recommended temp) and if you want to try OC'ing you have that option in the future

you are not gonna find any aftermarket cooler for less than 10 bucks. I think the AF7 is about.. 25? 30?

a friend of mine uses the retail heatsink and fan that came with his q6600 and he says it keeps temps in decent range. But he doesn't oc. So if you want to spend money on a new heatsink/fan later you could use the stock one until then.

stock is for stock use. like if you race cars you don't race with a stock mustang. you do some stuff to it to give it an edge. same with computers.
