    The stock fans that come with retail bartons will be more than sufficient for the CPU in normal conditions. You'll be fine.

    if you get an aftermarket fan,the zalman 7700(or 7000) Cu is worth considering.

    The stock fan is fine so long as you have decent cooling going on in your case to supplement it.

    Just use a utility to monitor your temps for a while.

    I just installed it, and its running good, I changed FSB to 200 so that it would recognize it as 3200
