    Up to 10%. BUT switching to after-market cooler will increase longevity.

    Get an all in one watercooler ;D, im running that same processor and its probably a bit overkill just for an i5 with no OCing.

    Even if you managed to overclock with it, the temps will go sky high and noise levels will be unbearable

    They look good n all but the only concern I have is if it will fit in my PC case as My PC case is pretty crap and my friend has the same case and could barely fit an aftermarket cooler in it :L
    I have a CiT Vantage Type-R Gaming Case with HD Audio, 4 Fans, Card Reader and No PSU: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...=1&s=computers

    Yeah you will be able to overclock, but it's limited. I recommend a closed waterloop cooler like the h100i or a good fan like noctua d14
