You don't need the CPU cooler because your CPU cannot be overclocked. you also don't need a z77 motherboard for a non overclockable CPU. Get an h77 instead.

The computer will max modern games no problem.

Which one is a CPU cooler?
February 15, 2013 9:55:02 PM

OK nvm its the 212 evo
February 15, 2013 9:58:02 PM

I thought the that the CPU cooler was a fan for everything. I got that mixed with the case fan, right?

Yes correct. The CPU has its own heatsink and fan.

Recommend any case fans that fit the case? And also, do I need any thermal compound for anything?
