Solved Core i7 950 Cooling Tags: CPUs Cooling Intel i7 Last response: January 14, 2011 10:57 AM in CPUs Share gghilliard January 6, 2011 5:40:11 PM I am building a new gaming rig. Upgrading some new componets and keeping some old. I have ordered: Core i7 950 CORSAIR DOMINATOR 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ASUS P6X58D-E EVGA GEForce 580 GTX I was wondering if the stock cooling system/heatsink for the cpu was good engough? Probably won't OC (not for a while anyway). Keeping in mind that this is going in an older case...Antec Sonota II. Any thoughts?

But if you haven't got any money left, and won't OC at all, then don't buy one. Share mkchampion14 January 6, 2011 10:33:12 PM +1 for Hyper 212+ m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
