Hello all I first off would like to apologize if this is in the wrong Category. I am building a PC and this is my first time i would like to play games like borderlands and starcraft on high-ultra. Here are the specs
Processer: Intel Core i5-3450 Ivy Bridge 3.1GHz
Ram: 8Gb 2x4
CPU cooling: Asetek 550lc liquid cooling
Graphics card: Nvidia Geforce 660ti
Motherboard: Asrock H61M-VS
Standard 600 watt power supply
More aboutsufficient build
Looks pretty decent. I don't know about the H61 chipset motherboard, though; I'd get H77.
Oh, and don't even bother getting a cooler, much less a liquid cooler. (You should NEVER get a closed-loop liquid cooler like that, but since neither your CPU nor your motherboard will even LET you overclock, the stock heatsink is more than sufficient.)
EDIT: That liquid cooler is even worse than most; it doesn't come with a fan, which you need to have, so that's extra cost.
you do not need liquid cooling for a non overclocking CPU. The stock fan should be fine. Also, get a H77 motherboard, not a H61.
I am getting the liquid cooling for free would the stock fan be better or would they be the same.
Also, list the power supply model and manufacturer. One of the worst things that could ruin your build is a bad power supply.

Well, if it comes with a fan, then go for it. If it doesn't, which it normally doesn't, it's a bad idea.
(By the way, are you "customizing" this from some place? Please know that they're overcharging you by $500-$700, and that you could build a better computer for cheaper. It's actually easy, especially with the plethora of youtube videos; it's no harder than LEGOs were as a kid.)
