Intel Core i3-2100
ASUS P8H61-ML X
G.skill Ripjaws X 2x2gb
GTX 650 Ti
Seasonic (M12II) 520watts

I don't overclock, neither do I plan on doing so, but I do leave my computer turned on for atleast 18 hours a day. Im just wondering if I need a CPU/GPU/Ram Cooler for this setup? Honestly, i just want to get a few of them for aesthetic purposes :lol:

No it is not necesary for any aftermarket cooler for that CPU, or any if you do not overclock.

Only reason that you could have is too get rid of the noise from a standard Intel CPU cooler.

I currently use a FSP Epsilon 600w PSU, but I will be getting a Seasonic (M12II) 520watts next week.. By the way, what cooler would you recommend? I am specifically looking for one that looks nice (for aesthetic purposes) :)

The only reason you would need an after market cooler is if the stock cooler is too loud or you want lower temperatures. If you are overclocking it is a MUST. For my the stock Intel cooler was just not my taste so I got the Hyper 212+.

The stock cooler should work fine. Don't waste money on an aftermarket cooler.

Well, i wouldn't really consider it wasting money since it's something that will do me good in the long run, and at the same time it increases a PC's appearance :p
