CPU cooler big enough?
So I'm doing another big rig build. I have my Intel i7 processor on the board and a honkin' big cooling fan and fins to help it run cool. But now my memory won't fit.
My plan now is to use the cooling fan and heat sink that came with the processor. It's considerably smaller but it was included with the processor. I usually go big with the CPU cooling but it seems to me that if Intel put the fan in the package, they are satisfied that it will do the job.
The case has lots of space and HUGE fans itself so, I'll go this route until I find a suitable replacement. Or maybe this can work indefinitely. Any thoughts?

The stock cooler on my i7 3770 does the job.
