  6. Another good price vs. performance cooler is the Hyper 212+ (unfortunately not in that review, would have been interesting to see where it would place) since the 3rd place one is out of stock.
  7. Thanks for the replies guys. The megahalems looks good. The site I am buying from is:

    That might help!

    Oh, also I doubt I will be overclocking this system. Will I need a cooler at all if it's not being overclocked?
  8. The Megahalem could passive cool a stock i5 - it is serious overkill. So unless that appeals to you save a little $$ and get the Hyper 212+. While certainly a notch below the PM, it still is an excellent cooler. It keeps my OC'ed i5 below 56C on the Cores.
  9. So would a cooler be needed for this particular set up if it was not being overclocked?
  10. No, not really. However, the included cooler is only mediocre. Might still want to get a mid range aftermarket cooler, but the stock cooler will work.
  11. No problems, will probably get a cooler to be safe. Thanks
