    Guys, I'm about to purchase my new system components which i have spent months shopping around for.

    I don't really ever plan on overclocking to be honest and would like a professional opinion on whether the stock CPU cooler that comes with the 95W GO stepping Q6600 processor would suffice for my mostly internet / desktop publishing activities?

    And is the stock cooler noisy?

    Stock coolers are quite sufficient for basic use. They tend to be quieter because they use slower fans.

    I would think that you should be more than fine using the stock cooler.

    I actually built a computer for someone using that exact case. It has good ventilation, especially if you put one 120mm fan on the front for intake, and one on the back for exhaust. If you're not going to overclock, then the stock cooler will work just fine with that setup. You won't have any heat issues.

    Thanks Jones.

    On a side-note - what do you think of my proposed setup?

    While more fans never hurt, the centurion 5 already has two fans. 120mm in the back and 80mm in the front. I have also used that case once and I liked it a lot.

    And, from what you listed as your setup, I think it will be a pretty good build.
