Will this work ? - building a computer for the first time.

Hello all,

I was just wondering if this set up would work, it is my first time building a pc and i'm doing it through cyberpower.

Build -

CPU: Intel® Core™ i5-3570K 3.40 GHz 6MB Intel Smart Cache LGA1155 - Overclocked by 30%

HDD: 1TB SATA-III 6.0Gb/s 32MB Cache 7200RPM HDD

MEMORY: 8GB (4GBx2) DDR3/1600MHz Dual Channel Memory

MOTHERBOARD: [CrossFireX] GIGABYTE Z77-DS3H Intel Z77 Chipset DDR3 ATX Mainboard w/ IRST, 7.1 HD Audio, GbLAN, 2x Gen3 PCIe x16, 2 PCIe x1 & 2 PCI


VIDEO: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 2GB 16X PCIe 3.0 Video Card [+147] (Major Brand Powered by NVIDIA)

Cooler Master HAF 912 Mid-Tower Gaming Case w/ Adjustable HDD Cage (Black Color)

Asetek 510LC Liquid Cooling System 120MM Radiator & Fan (Enhanced Cooling Performance + Extreme Silent at 20dBA) (Dual Standard 120MM Fans (Push-Pull)

Now seeing as this is my first time modifying and putting together a pc, my main concern is the heat due to the cpu being overclocked by 30 %... So I was just wondering could this pc run well or is it probably going to overheat ?

Thanks so much

  1. If you haven't placed the order yet, don't have them do the overclocking... It is easy enough for you to do and if something should go wrong or out of whack, you will know how to deal with it...
    I wouldn't think it would have heat issues.
