    Default Cooling Support

    I am now planning on building a build similar to this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1h1jq
    I am also going to install another 200MM Fan in the open spot on the top of my case. If someone more hardware smart then myself could give me tips that would be great, I am more of a software guy. Thanks

    What do you need the i7 for? If you're just going to be gaming you'll almost never use all of its power. I'd go with the i5 build, and get a more powerful graphics card personally.

    I'd recommend an aftermarket cooler for either build because they run hot, but it's not necessary.

    The stock intel coolers do quite well if you don't use the ceramic compound they come with. Wipe that stuff off, use some arctic silver 5 and you're good to go. But don't get me wrong the evo is a wonderful cooler, you can hit 4ghz on that and stay under 40C on full load on an i5.

    The 650 Ti only has a 128-bit bandwidth so don't expect to do much with that card. You can get a 1gig card with a 256-bit bandwidth and that'll set you up good.

    A good, cheap CPU cooler that should be fine for stock settings is of course the Hyper 212 Evo.
