First Build


I have just ordered my first PC Build. The components are as follows:

MB: ASUS P6X58D Premium
CPU: Intel Core i7 930 Nehalem 2.80GHz
GPU: Sapphire ATI Radeon HD5970 2GB GDDR5
RAM: Kingston HyperX 6GB (3x2GB) DDR3-1600 CL9 (x2 = 12GB Total)
HDD1: Western Digital VelociRaptor 300GB 10000RPM
HDD2: Western Digital Caviar Black 1TB 64MB Cache SATA3
PSU: Corsair TX850 850W
Case: HAF 922
OS: Microsoft Windows 7 64-bit

This build will be used mainly for 3D rendering and gaming. My question is regarding cooling. I am not going to be doing any overclocking, nor do I have any intention of doing so. Will the cooling that comes standard with all these parts be sufficient or will I need to add additional at all? which I ideally want to avoid..

Cheers all...

    The stock cooler will be fine, it is designed to handle everything at stock and keep it in safe ranges. The 922 also has good airflow so that should help you keep things within safe ranges.
  2. Cheers! Exactly what I wanted to hear. Had to make sure I wasn't gonna be frying my new parts after a few months.
