I'm planning on waiting until the AMD 8xxx series releases, so for the time being I will have to run on the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics. My question is, will the stock heatsink/fan be good enough to cool the CPU with the graphics enabled? And when I get the graphics card, will I be able to put it into the motherboard and the integrated graphics will just stop on their own?

yes, if ur not overclocking the stock cooler will do fine.

unless u plan on overclocking, than thats a different story, but in general id recommand u upgrade to a better cooler to start with, since heat puts more stress on a cpu more than anything and kills the linespan of it, its not obligatory but its a recommandation i give since intel cooler will work but doesnt give super temps,

if youd like something for u to overclock and play with at a budget price u cant beat the

evo 212 hyper+

Thanks for the suggestions, but something that scares me is that IDK if my CX430 can handle an after market cooler. It's only 430w :/ . Also, will the CM Hyper 212 EVO fit inside my NZXT Source 210?

hmm, u got any budget for a stronger ps, that thing is alright but once u overclock, i dunno man, wouldnt risk it, also the 212 evo would fit in nzxt no problem.

NZXT Source 210 says 160mm heatsink clearance

hyper 212 evo is 159mm

so dont think it will fit no problem--thats really tight

if you install a graphics card then yes you just plug the monitor cable into the card and it will take over

from the integrated graphics

Seems to be so, was reading Newegg feedback, and an individual said it fit with no problems.

so will fit most likely.

also yes when u install a new 8000 series it will use ur new gpu and not the integrated 4k :)

If you're worried about your PSU supporting an aftermarket cooler, you should probably go ahead and change it, especially considering your 8xxx series card will require an upgraded PSU anyway. So start looking into a 650W PSU, give yourself some time to shop around and find one that best fits your budget/needs.

Just bear in mind, that when buying a PSU, you should be looking at the +12v rail. It should have at least 35 amps on it, or 40 to be safe.

i would think the cx 430 shgould be enough to handle a HSF. more so if you have the newer bronze 80+ revision as the rail can supply more amps.

well it can handle it, but depends on how much u overclock ur cpu and how much the 8000 series videocards take up as energy usage.

thats wher ei would probably draw the line when the next series(whether it be 8000 or 9000, because its confirmed that oem 89xx are 79xx rebadges, so theres a slim chance it will be named 9k). For limit purposes, since the next set is just optimized GCN, i would recommend at most the highest single pin card(so most likely the 8850/9850 depending on however amd will name it)

id def think hes gonna need to upgrade his ps, if hes heavily overclocking the cpu and has a power hungry gpu.

Not overclocking, and the 8850 and 7850 apparently have the same power consumption? And the 7850 should work fine on a CX430
