Hi everyone , i'm building my gaming rig but i'm stuck at the proccessor
I have chosen an Intel i7 2600k but i don't know if it's needed an cpu cooler
I don't have any plans of overclocking cpu so i found unimportant a cooler
What do you guys think ?, btw i have 4 case fans running
The boxed Intel® Core™ i7-2600K do come with a HSF (heatsink/fan) that is fine for normal speeds and temperatures with that processor. If you ever want to overclock that processor I would advise that you to pick up a good 3rd party HSF.
there are plenty of coolers out there that will work well enough. there is no need to spend a lot of money either. a zalman cnps 10 with a yateloon fan will run you about 25 pounds and will give enough headroom to get your cpu to 4.2+ghz.
