If you are not OCing then why bother, you have a 3 year warranty with the boxed parts.

This Limited Warranty shall be null and void if the AMD microprocessor which is the subject of this Limited Warranty is used with any heatsink/fan other than the one provided herewith.

Three (3) Year Processor In A Box Limited Warranty

If your not OCing why are you spending cash on cooling, the stock HS&F is fine if your not overclocking. Spend money on some ram instead.

If you're not OCing, the stock HSF that you have will do fine.
If you're not comfortable, you can get a better HSF, like the Thermaltake BigTyphoon or the freezer pro. They'll give great results and will be more than enough for stock, and give you great results for OCing... and cost a lot less than watercooling

the heatpipe cooler that comes in the box with a 4600 is just fine, it's AMD approved, etc...just use some AS5, AC MX-1, or even the stock Shin Etzu that comes pre applied

Unless they changed it, I'd have to disagree

paste.....what paste we didn't talk about paste........ the heatsink his actualy equiped with a heatpad 4 the cpu to sit on( talking about the stock amd fan/heatsink) but 4 now I think I'l actualy try the fan and see the result but it would still suprise me to see a 4600+ x2 fan/heatsink not be enough 4 a single core 4000+!!!! I'l just make sure to have good casing fans.

thanks Every one
