Default Heatsink for AMD 64 3000+

Hey guys, I would like to know what the best value for heatsink would be for a amd 64 3000+ coupled with MSI K8T Neo mobo? Also, if I am not going to overclock, would I be fine with just adding extra fans with a stock heatsink? Or would upping the heatsink be a good idea?

Even though it may be sufficient i would still recommend spending a few extra dollars to lower the temps. This will help the longevity of your hardware. Unless you stock heatsink/fan is giving you temps of no more than 50 C under full load I would think about investing in a new heatsink, it defintatly wouldnt hurt. Keeping your temps in the 40-45C range at all times would be best for keeping your cpu happy

In addition with heat sink , you may consider to install a heat sensor inside your case to monitor the temp.

some mobos already come with heat sensors, do you get a heatsink with any retail CPU fans?
