    HP Pavilion, Gigabyte GA-Z87MX-D3H board
  3. Which model HP pavilion do you have? Because like hyper 212EVO is very good but it is 160mm high, if you don't get the right model then I can't find the details for the case, and I can't recommend one for you.

    And also do you have idea which store or website to buy the cooler? Like amazon?

    The HP Pavilion is model is p6300z. I will probably buy from Amazon if they carry the recommended cooler.
  5. The stock cooler will work just fine with the CPU at stock speeds. That's what it was designed to do. It would be a shame not to overclock, though. You have the "K" version of your CPU and a Z87 chipset motherboard. Is there a reason you won't be overclocking?

    Only that I haven't done it before but it is tempting to try! Will I need more cooling capcity if I do OC?
  7. Yes, you will need an aftermarket CPU cooler for overclocking. The stock cooler works just fine with the CPU at stock speed. I can't seem to find any images of the inside of that case. Could you either upload a picture or measure from the motherboard to the side panel so we know how much room there is for a cooler? Does it have a fan at the back of the case? If so, do you know what size it is? Another option may be to replace the rear fan with a 120mm liquid cooler if the fan is 120mm.

    There is a rear fan, 90mm, but room for a 120mm.

    A liquid cooler will eliminate the guess work on whether a tower type air cooler will fit. They are at the upper end of your budget, but would allow you to play around with overclocking.

    Good advice, thank you... better safe than sorry... a few $s extra will be worth the peace of mind! Terry
