Stock cooler for Fx8350

Can I use the stock cooler for now, no overclocking, stock settings? I won't be overclocking anytime soon, and I have plans to do a custom watercooling loop in a few months. Light gaming only. Average room temp is around 16C. Case is Arc Midi R2, w/3 intake fans and 2 exhaust. Thanks

The stock coolers that come with the fx cpus are horrible mine was so loud that it was not bearable. My wife could hear it in the other room.. I have an fx8120 i think they are similar. If you want a low priced upgrade and want to overclock slightly then a ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa on sale for 19.99 on new egg is a good bet. I am using that now but will be upgrading again to a ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED.

............AMD should of not even sold the stock cooler for this chip and slapped a big warning on it...."DOES NOT INCLUDE COOLING FAN"

The stock cooler is the best stock cooler I have ever seen it has heat pipes which makes me think it is third party made

ok, tnx. Its just that I don't want to buy an aftermarket fan cooler and eventually junk it after I have the parts for the watercooling.

Also a high end water cooling kit lately is just as good as a custom loop h100 and swiftech 220
