I am currently in the process of building my newest gaming rig to upgrade from my current. I am wondering if this build should require a CPU cooler as my current one does not even overclocked. Considering the prices on a few air and water coolers I dont see why it wouldnt benefit the build. Also if anyone has had a good experience with a few or could recommend a good one that would be great! What I am planning:
Intel Core i5-3570k MSI Z77-G45 Gskill DDR3 1600 1.5V 4GBx2 120GB SSD 1TB external WD HDD AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB Windows 7 64bit I will be overclocking both CPU and GPU. I have decided on the Thermaltake Chaser A71 Full Tower, If that helps, I have heard those cases have a good amount of air flow naturally. Also if anyone sees any improvements that I could make to this build please let me know, Its been a couple years since I have researched the market. Thanks!

I'd be happy to help you. First of all, I need to know exactly what RAM it is you have as RAM often gets in the way of a cooler.
Depending on how much you plan to overclock, I'd get a Cooler Master 212 Evo. It's a great CPU cooler for the money, using it myself to cool my 2500k.
