AMD Phenom II X4 965 stock cooler

i recently took advice from this community in building a budget gaming pc and they really helped me out and i bought the following parts:-

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965

GPU: Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7870 2 GB GDDR5

Motherboard: ASRock 960GM/U3S3 FX AM3+ AMD 760G SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD

Memory: Corsair 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 1333 MHz

Power Supply: Corsair Builder Series CX 600 Watt ATX/EPS 80 PLUS

Case: NZXT Source 210 with usb 3.0 and 2 fans one at the top and one at the rear

Extras: 2 of Cooler Master SickleFlow 120mm Blue LED fans , i intend to install one at the front and the other on the side


After all this babbling :kaola: , my question is will the stock cpu cooler be enough for 3 months? as i am not planning to OC and i intend to buy the hyper 212 3 months from now because i can't afford it now, i am planning to play the likes of witcher 2 , bf3 , ac3 for 2-3 hours a day tops only so no video editing or any other usage

Thanks in advance.

  1. It will be fine, as you said you aren't overclocking just yet so no worries

  2. Thanks , that's really assuring :D
    i am still anxious as the parts didn't arrive yet , from your point of view is the performance of the games i mentioned gonna be good without overclocking?

    It'll be definitely fine, but that thing will most likely get really loud on full load.
    Performance wise, it seems like a good system! Definitely are gonna get a great framerate on Source games, and most likely you might be able to play some of the Crysis series. I'd get the same system you have - only thing is, I'd buy a 7870 GHz Edition.
