So guys, in about two weeks i'm going to be building my first gaming pc. I have all the components i want selected except for the cpu cooler. i was going to go with the phanteks ph-tc 14pe but now that i'm close to ordering all the parts i have noticed that my budget doesn't stretch that far. i only have 40€ for the cpu cooler while the ph-tc 14pe is €75. these are all my components:
Cpu: i7 4770k
Cpu Cooler: right now thinking about the BeQuiet shadow rock 2.
mobo: msi z87 g45 gaming
ram: kingston hyperx beast 2x4gb 2400mhz ddr3 (got this in a sale, already have it at home)
Storage: wd black caviar 1t hdd
samsung 840 evo 120gb ssd
Gpu: msi r9 290
Gpu cooler: arctic acceleroextreme III
Case: nzxt phantom full tower white
Psu corsair cx 750w builder
display: BenQ gl2450HM
The only parts i already ordered are the ram, ssd and the case.
Please help me select a great cpu cooler for a nice overclock at 40€, i would be really gratefull.
if you just want to game just get a i5-4670K, its 100$ cheaper so you should easily be able to get the phanteks. though personally id rather get the noctua Nh D14 its about the same price as the phanteks but better in fact its the best air cooler money can buy.
and also change your PSU get something like seasonic S12II 620, its much more reliable than CX750.
