What OS will you use? 2. Are you going to overclock? If so you need a good aftermarket cooler. Even if you aren't overclocking it is still recommended . ralphwarren October 6, 2010 8:36:48 PM It will be Windows 7. An upgraded cooler sounds like a good idea. Not sure about over-clocking but good to have the option. Is liquid cooling the best option or just a good fan/heat-sink? Thanks for your help! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
