Hey there,

Im quite new to computer building and was looking to get a pre-built motherboard/CPU/ram configuration. So i checked out the amazon lists, and found this -

Now, as mentioned before, im new to PC building, but will this be able to keep the CPU cool? I thought if the CPU was overclocked to 4.4GHZ it would require a watercooling system?

For those of you who do not click on the amazon link, the items in the pre-built bundle are as follows:

Intel Core i7 2600K Quad Core CPU Processor Overclocked to 4.4Ghz - Socket LGA1155
Asus P8Z68-V LX Z68 Intel DDR3 ATX Crossfire HDMI Motherboard
Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 High Performance CPU Cooler
16GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance LP DDR3 1600MHz RAM Memory

Anyway, just wondering if this sett-up would actually not burn itself out?

Cheers in advance.

Well, you don't want to OC much with that mobo anyway (4+2 Phase power design and no heatsinks on the VRM's). Other than that, 4.4Ghz is easily attainable on air with a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo (what I have @ 4.5Ghz with my 2500K, and I could go higher if I wanted to, I just don't need to).

Actually you don't need to overclock at all with a single gtx560....

LOL, we've touched on this in another thread once before, but I do other things besides gaming. But for purely gaming, you're right.
