Is it Enough to Use the OEM-Supplied CPU Cooler on a Budget?
When shopping around for PC components on a tighter budget, having a CPU cooler included with the processor can save some money that can be spent elsewhere. We know that AMD supplies coolers and pre-applied thermal paste with some of its best CPUs, but do Intel CPUs come with thermal paste? Not all Intel CPUs come with a cooler and, as such, not all of them come with thermal paste. Just like AMD, Intel only ships coolers with specific chips, and they will have thermal paste pre-applied.
You'll usually find coolers with processors that don't require beefier solutions with better thermal capacity. OEM-supplied (AMD and Intel) CPU coolers aren't as good as aftermarket coolers simply because they're being bundled for free and they're not designed for enthusiast use or even overclocking. You can technically do it but just be warned about a considerable jump in temperatures.
