Its Bloody Cold....

Hey my new Config is
Core i5 2400
Asus p8h61-pro
Corsair xms3 4gb ddr3
Seagate barracuda 500 gb
Ati Radeon HD 6870
Coolermaster silent pro gold 600W


I m going to run every latest dx10 and dx11 games in a simple resolution of 1280x1024
and still now no thought for overclocking
what i need 2 know is do i need an extra cooling system
or a simple coolermaster elite 430 will do a decent airflow job
and if what else if later on i move on to overclocking

Confused :( :( :(

  1. Your 2400 is a non-K CPU which can only be overclocked so far up to 4.1 Ghz if your lucky on 1 core and 3.8Ghz on 4 cores. But 3.9Ghz is good for 4 cores for a limited unlocked CPU. If you want overclocking you should have gotten the K series. Plus you need a aftermarket cpu cooler. Cooler Master Hyper 212 will do the trick.

    well i was only thinking of oc'ing the card...is it nessecary to oc the cpu 2 along with the card? if not then m not interested....and as i asked regardless of the oc do i need a cooling system?
  3. And no you can OC a non k series intel SB however you can overclock it by so little.

    On non-P67/Z68 boards. the base clock also controls the pci-e bus, which doesnt like any value other then default 100, so you have VERY limited OC room. We're talking MHz here, as in, <1% overclocking.
  4. In reality you cant OC anything.

    The 430 elite would keep things cool.However it only has one front fan.You can add more fans.
  11. And the 430 also has a Window!
    You can put cool cathode tubes to light up your pc!
