Will a 430W powersupply be sufficient enough for a Q6600?

how about a Q9550?

The Q6600 and the Q9550 are both two processors created with different manufacturing processes. Which one is supported depends on your motherboard, newer models usually support both. As for the power supply issue, that depends on the rest of your hardware, mainly the video card. Obviously the faster or number of components there are, the more power is needed. In terms of which aftermarket cooler you should use, that depends. Many coolers advertise themselves as quiet. The ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 7 Pro is very quiet. SilentPC has a list of heatsinks that are rated based on the amount of sound they make. They give the XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler one of their highest rankings, but it is quite large.

Stock clocks, i dont trust overclocking. And most likely will be going with the Q9550. And an Asus P45 board.
