i finally decided to upgrade to the i7 route and ordered the Core i7 950 last night along with a board and 6 gb of memory. Im used to having a fairly quiet PC and currently have a Zerotherm HSF with 120mm fan on the Core 2 Duo which runs fairly quiet. so i wanted to know if the stock intel HSF will be quiet enough for me or should i start looking into a quieter solution. any suggestions would be appreciated. thanks guys.
i dont plan on overclocking or anything. my days of fine tinkering are gone.
