im probably going to play dark souls 2 and battlefield 4, will it be able to handle max settings at stable fps or at least high settings at stable fps. Will the cpu fan be able to take som overclocking of the cpu?

  1. the budget is about 10000 swedish crowns and yeah i live in sweden
  2. That cpu cooler would be better than the stock cooler, but not really ideal for overclocking. If you want a medium overclock, look to the cooler master Hyper 212 evo. If you want an aggressive overclock, look to the Noctua NH-D14 or NH-D15.

    What CPU are you looking at?
    What resolution is your monitor?
  3. ok thx :)
  4. For BF4 on ultra settings at 1920x1080 you can expect 42FPS average
    For BF4 on high settings at 1920x1080 you can expect 67FPS average

    What is your CPU?

  5. but will it fit without touching those ram sticks i chose?

    Yes, it will fit. Those sticks aren't that high at all. Nice and low.

    The great thing about the hyper 212 is, you can adjust the fan height if needed to clear the ram. But I'm pretty sure you won't even need to do that with that ram.
  7. Intel Core i5-4690K sry for forgetting it
  8. Great CPU.

    Personally, I'd seriously consider waiting if I was building a new computer today. I think I'd wait for the new 800 series GPU to come out. I haven't heard the latest on when they are due, but last I heard was October. Something to think about.
  9. 1920x1080
  10. but just for some minor clocworking would one of these cpu fans do the job Noctua NH-U12S or Noctua NH-U9B SE2
  11. Yes, for minor overclocking either of those would do a really good job. The U9B looks like it comes with two fans too. Nice coolers.
  12. ok thank you very much for your help, i got no more questions right now ;)
