Hi Dude

I will move to a K chip in the future, and want this mainly because I like it. The intel fan works, but I think this looks much better. When I do upgrade, I will probably get the I53570k, and do a modest OC to around 4.2. Thanks for the input guys and gals

Then this cooler is more than enough for that. You could overclock to 4.5 GHz with it.

Well if looks are important than "I could of had a V8"

I thought about the V8, and this one too (from addram's specs)

COOLER MASTER Hyper N 520 RR-920-N520-GP 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with Intel 1366/1155/775 and AMD AM3 - Newegg.com

It may be silly so to say at this point, until I do get a k chip, but I really don't like the stock cooler.

No, it's not silly. I don't think any sane computer enthusiast likes Intel's stock coolers.

You can still benefit from an aftermarket cooler, now, as I'm sure you could run the fan really slow and cool it much better than the stock Intel garbage. So right there you have a quieter machine. If you want to quantify/justify it now that is. I would stick to the Hyper 212 Plus, or the 212 Evo. I don't like coolers with fans smaller than 120mm........the smaller the fan you have, the faster it will have to turn and the more noise it will put out.

Good point Kelly, that's why I picked the evo.

Dude you have been given some great choices to pick from.

I'm not going to tell you which one is a waste of your money because it's your money not mine.

I have never used a stock cpu cooler whether it was good enough or not. Their is no such thing as having to good of cooler.

I chose the Corsair H50 at the time I built this computer for these reasons.
1. At the time it was a great cooler. Still works great with upgraded fans. Not as good as the newer ones.
2. It allows a lot better air flow around the motherboard, video card and ram.
3. It take a lot of weight off the motherboard compared to a huge air heat sink.
4. It gives you more working room in the case when tinkering.
5. It helps keeping things neat and organized in the case.

When I build another computer it will have a enclosed water cooler of some kind.
