Default Stock Intel heatsink/fan question

Should I keep the stock heatsink/fan for a Pentium 4 630?
Or should I ditch it for this:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835128008

I am not planning on OC'ing for now.

What are ya'll's feelings for stock heatsink/fans?
Are they any good, or is it worth it to buy another one?

You should get a Thermalright XP-90. That will perform better than the one you linked to.

That's a little pricey, I just wondered if there was any real difference in tempratures when switching from a stock intel cooler. W/o Oc'ing

Yes there definitely is. I got a huge drop when going with the XP-90. The Gigabyte one should be OK too.

well what are ur temps if they are about 30c idle to 45 load then dont worry about it probably ever untli far into overclocking like past 500mhz
those are my ttemps exactly but if there are more like 40 idle 60 under load definitly get the xp 90 and forget about it
or a zalman 7700 thats a nice one
