Hey everyone, I was wondering, would a single Black Ice GT Stealth 120 with a Scythe S-Flex "G" fan be enough to cool my E8400 at the clock/voltage listed in my sig?

I currently load at about 58c with Prime95 and I would want to at least maintain those temps...what do you think?

I could fit a 120.2 in the case but I'd rather go with the 120.1 if my temps won't get any worse simply to lower costs and cut down the amount of modding required as cash is tight.

Yes, that would be fine. You can do a quad core on a single 120 radiator. If you are planning on upgrading down the road to wc your videocard(s) then you would want at least a 120.2.

Good to know...I'll be using the Swiftech Apogee Drive with integrated pump (so save space in my mATX case) if it makes any difference.
