I just bought my new rig today. Now assembling it. Here's the specs:

Core 2 Duo E6400 (2.13)
Gigabyte DS3 P965
Mushkin 2x1GB EM-PC6400 (5-5-5-12)
ATI Radeon X1900XT 512MB
Thermaltake Tsunami V3000 something (silver with window)
Seagate 320GB SATA2
Enermax 535W PSU

+coming from old rig

+Audigy 2 ZS
+Maxtor 250GB SATA2
+Lite-On 40x CD-RW
+Sony 16x DVD+/-RW
+Samsung 710N 17" LCD
+Dell 2407FPW 24" LCD
+Logitech Elite kb
+Logitech MX700 mouse (may buy a G7, not sure..)
+Creative t5500 speakers ors omething like that atm, gonna hook up my Logi's Z-5500 in a few a months

Wooot.

Now one question. How good is the stock CPU cooler? I'm gonna use that for the time being. Maybe get a better cooler sometime in the future. I saw at my local shop, they had a Zalman 9500, Zalman 9500AT, Zalman 7700-AlCu (or just Cu), Scythe Ninja Plus, Thermaltake Big Typhoon 120mm.

Will post some pics in a bit.

I vote for : Zalman 9500. Running 3ghz now with a idle temp @ 38c.

Everyone on Xtremesystems forums, which are the creme de la creme in overclockers, use the Tuniq 120 HSF cooler.

You would be wise to go with Tuniq 120. Good luck with your choice.

They are pretty hard to find in-stock right now though :(

Agreed, but its worth the time to search for one.

Or, he can try a Scythe Ninja:

The stock cooler isn't really all that special; idle temps are around 35 or so and load about 45, sometimes a little bit higher. I'm in the market for a third party solution at the moment (and that Tuniq one looks attractive!)
