do I need to get a liquid cooler for my new intel i7 4770k processor. I m not a gmer and i don't even know what overclocking is. i use my computer for the most basic stuff
the stock cooler will be fine if you are not overclocking. However, why on earth are you buying a 4770k for basic, non overclocking stuff? why not get something like the cheaper non k core i5 cpus? they will serve your purpose just as well, but not cost nearly as much. And there is no reason to get a k series if you are not overclocking.
