  1. Best answer
    compatible yes , smart no

    no gamer needs 16 gig of RAM
    2 x4 gig is more than enough

    you need a 600 watt power supply for that computer

    arctic silver is a scam

    What would you recommend other than arctic silver?
  3. The stuff that comes with the cooler is fine

    I would probably replace the stock cooler with either a Xigmatek 1283 or a CM Hyper 212

    Even without Overclocking?
  5. If you are not overclocking, there is no real need for a Z77 or a CPU cooler.
