Hi all,

currently I am assembling my first build:

i5-4670k
Cooler Master Hyper 212EVO
Gigabyte H87-HD3 ATX
ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5
Crucial 2.5-inch 240GB M500 SATA 6Gb/s SSD
WD Green Desktop 3,5" SATA III IntelliPower 2 TB HDD
Kingston HyperX Mémoire RAM 8 GB
Enermax Triathlor FC 650W 80 PLUS Bronze PSU
Fractal Design Define R4

No OC is foreseen. I wonder if I need to install any additional fans in the case?

Thanks a lot for the answers.

If you aren't overclocking change to a non-k CPU and drop the CPU cooler. They are complete pointless if there is no overclocking.

I would change the PSU to a more reliable brand like Corsair, XFX, Antec, Seasonic.

All any computer needs to keep cool are 3 fans:
-front intake
-rear exhaust
-top exhaust

This means that I have to buy additional top fan?

No, it is not necessary. Just run the computer as it is. If the GPU gets over 80c then you should think about changing things around a bit.

Run it with just the two fans for now.
