    That will suffice provided no overclocking is involved.

    Might give you a slight edge over the stock cooler, but probably no amazing temperatures. Definately not a heatsink for overclocking, but as you say you will be doing no overclocking, I would just go with the quietest solution possible.

    I am just a worthless liar. I am just an imbecile.
    I will only complicate you. Trust in me and fall as well.
    I will find a center in you. I will chew it up and leave.
    I will work to elevate you just enough to bring you down.

    OK...we're halfway there.
    What motherboard?
    This is of interest mainly to see if your board has mounting holes around the socket or not.
    Having them widens the range of suitable heatsinks considerably.

    Thank you.
    Your board does include the holes.

    This means that the Zalman 7000, a personal favorite of mine, will work.
    So too would the new Thermalright SI-97 (which mounts with the stock socket clips).
    I recently got the TR in stock at my shop and it looks to be a fine solution, although I have yet to actually try one out.
    The choice of fan for the TR ( it does NOT come with one) would be the determining factor in how efficient/quiet it is.

    Don't let your stated aversion to OCing determine your choice of sinks...a good heatsink is effective at any level of performance, while a marginal one can hinder your PC even at stock settings.
