Re: Please critique my $5k build plans...
the stock cooler that comes with the 980X processor is the BEST stock heat sink.
i think you should use the stock heatsink, that should be plenty of head room to familiarize your self with the bios and the overclocking rutein. that 980X heatsink should be good for at least 3.8ghz.
doesnt make sense to me to waste $100.
