Hello, I am going to be building my first PC soon,I originally wanted to use a closed water loop to cool my cpu because I like the smaller profile of them and the cleaner look, but I have decided to go with the air cooling route out of fear of getting leaks and ruining my new build.
Since I have never built my own pc before, I am relatively new to parts selection and what is compatible with what, I don't really see why it wouldn't be compatible with my build, but I just want some reassurance that I will be able to use this particular heatsink for my build.
My case will be a Zalman Z11 HF1 edition
Processor is intel core i5 3570k
The motherboard I have chosen is the Asrock Z77 extreme 4
Is there any reason I wouldn't be able to use this heatsink for my build?
