    This is it!
  2. Thank you cutebeans! Do I need to worry about cpu cooling or anything else?
  3. Not really, unless you overclock your CPU. So, you should buy one when you plan on overclocking. :)
  4. i recommend a decent cooler for oc like this one : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103065
    The rest you should be fine, although i recommend the use of low profile ram : http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186
  5. Is that Microcenter price on the CPU an in-store pickup only?

    Better cooler than the CM Hyper 212+ as measured by Frostytech.com: Xigmatek Gaia; it's also 6db quieter. I have them cooling my rigs (specs below) and have no complaints.
