Unless you're going to be overclocking, the stock cooler will be fine.

The stock heatsink has really impressed me as far as overclocking as well.

Hell, if you are getting OEM and need to buy one, may as well get an aftermarket one.

But to answer your question Yes a regular 3500+ would be fine

BTW

make sure the after market heatsink fits your socket.
754, 939 ect....

i noticed when overclocking my 4800+ there was a big difference to how hot it got compared to voltages. i could get my 4000+ up to around 1.5v compared to my 4800+ were it was 1.4 before it started hitting the 55 degrees C mark for both

EDIT lambofgod have you ever made naplam?
