First off, I DON'T do any form of overclocking. I'm not experienced at it and thus shy away from it. I want my pieces to last as long as I can without me causing additional damage to them. Having said that, I recently purchased the intel i5 750 for my new gaming rig.
I am using:
-Cooler master cosmos case
-MSi MSI P55M-GD45 LGA 1156 Intel P55 Micro ATX (causing concern for usable aftermarket coolers)
-6 gigs G. Skill 1600 mz ram
-Ati 5850 1GB
-Rosewill 950w psu
This will be a gaming rig only. Without overclocking, will my cpu be in trouble withotu aftermarket cooling?
Thanks for the response. I guess my second question would be which 1156 socket aftermarket cooler I'd need? I'm hesitant about purchasing them because my mb is a Micro ATX. Anyone know what would actually work without the trial and error cycle of orders and returns?
