so i noticed my computer is running a little hot as of late, and i think its bcuz of running my system in boost mode from AMD overdrive, so im looking into getting a cpu cooler, i was wondering if the one below is compatible with my rig and if it will fit, or if i should just wait to invest in something better?? any replys appreciated!!

So, you didn't mention a case for the cooler to fit in? Sigh.

Anyhow, you're only worried about the radiator and fan setup. It's about the size of a Cooler Master Hyper 212+ with an extra fan, so you're going to need space for that, either inside or outside the case.

If the case allows, outside fitting of the radiator is preferred. It allows for better cooling overall due to not blowing hot air around inside the case.

Anyway, that case is pretty basic. I'm not sure it will fit a water cooling system. Look at a case like the Cooler Master HAF-932 if you're looking at water cooling. It's very sturdy, good quality and easily fits a large water cooling system.

do u think i can run my computer in boost mode tho for the time being even tho its getting hot, its more on the warm side, and feels kinda good when i put my hand on it, that cant be too bad right?!

Temps man, "how your hand feels" isn't an accurate measurement. Get something like HWMonitor to tell you how hot the CPU is in degrees, and post those temps here.
