CPU Cooling advice

Hi guys,

Ive had some great help on here about the upgrades I am about to do that has turned into taking my old PSU and building a new computer around it. Quick summary:
-i5 3570k
-Gigabyte Z77-D3H mobo
-8gb ddr3
-120gb OCZ Agility 3 SSG
-Nvidia GTX 560 ti

Im using it for mild gaming, and run a monitor and LED tv off it, so movies etc. I dont plan on any overclocking at this point, im not looking to pump graphic settings etc, hence the modest GPU, my question is what should i be looking at for cooling? The case is an older CoolerMaster one, not too many vents etc. I just want to ensure the life of my gear. Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks guys - Burgies.

    What case do you have?

    CM 912 case is a standard go to for overall.

    CM 212 cpu cooler is also a go to.

    I'd just set up the stuff in your case as is and get a program to look at temps....if high then new case, fans, ect.
