Ask ! Get the answer n3cw4rr10r March 30, 2013 9:15:02 AM The i7 is overkill, get a i5-3570k. Also I dont see the need for another 200mm fan. The haf 922 already comes with 2x200mm fans and 1 140mm fan. baconieatdat March 30, 2013 9:21:08 AM the extra fan is for the side to cool the motherboard directly and im only getting the i7 becuase i can get it for 240 but will this beable to run most games on max? baconieatdat March 30, 2013 9:32:38 AM would this be better? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NfMe n3cw4rr10r March 30, 2013 9:34:02 AM You will have to check see if you have enough clearance to install the 200mm fan once you have installed the gpu. The i5-3570k will perform very very close to the i7. It is all you need. baconieatdat March 30, 2013 9:38:14 AM i scratched the extra fan and fan controller for now but is the mobo good? and i can get the i7 for the same price as the i5 n3cw4rr10r March 31, 2013 9:14:58 AM baconieatdat said:i scratched the extra fan and fan controller for now but is the mobo good? and i can get the i7 for the same price as the i5 Yes its a good motherboard.
