The stockfan and heatsink should be sufficient for the CPU on nominal frequencies. The CPU won't run as cool or silent as it could when you use a aftermarket cooling solution, but it should do. And if you want to overclock the CPU then you should consider a aftermarket cooling solution

Go Back to NewEgg and look at the Coursair , H-50 . H2O Cooler Real quite and better than any air cooler . $ 75.00. Than you can crank up your Wolfdale as much as you want.

I may try OCing later when I can afford a cooler. Never OC'd before and dont have the money for a better cooler anyhow.
