Just a quick question, i need to know if this cpu cooler is good enough for my new build. the cooler i chose is, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Direct Touch 4 Heatpipe Heatsink - $31.06.

I plan overclocking my cpu to.

My specs of the new are:

CPU - Intel Core i5-4670K Haswell
Mobo - ASUS Z87-A LGA 1150
GPU - EVGA GeForce GTX 770
RAM - Havnt chose yet but probably 8gb would do.
PCU - Also havnt chose.
CPU Heatsink - Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo Direct Touch 4 Heatpipe Heatsink DD - Seagate barracuda ST500DM002 500GB

I COMPLETELY NEW TO BuiLDing COMPUTERS, lil help with me probably will go a long way

Yes, that's one of the better choices on the air cooling end. Assuming that you're not doing any major overclocking (i.e. 5GHz area) you'll be fine.

More than enough to keep it cool, the Hyper 212 is simple and effective.

Yes like i said im new to building computers so, i just found out what overclocking meant and.. overclocking any cpu to me is an unreal fact. Ill make sure i dont overclock at 5ghz.
And thanks for the answers.
