My first build will be centered around the core i5 750. I have no experience overclocking but am planning to do so. Nothing extreme, definitely under 4ghz. Do I need a cooler at all? If so, will a cheap one like the CM Hyper 212 do? I live in the Philippines and it's gets pretty hot and humid over here. Does that make a difference?
And if it helps, this is the rest of my prospective build.
I'd say for overclocking it would be very beneficial to get an aftermarket cooler, but not essential. I use a CM Hyper TX2 and they are in my opinion awesome budget coolers!
Cooler Master Hyper 212 and PLus version, are very good choices for OC. Plus version is a bit different and dedicated to 1156 socket. With that board u can't fix a 775 cooler without a 1156 retention bracket .
