  3. New Build - 3rd Party Cooler question.
2 years ago#1
Hello all,

I have recently bought the parts to build my first computer, but there is one issues I'm going back and forth on... 3rd party cooling system.

I intent to game on the highest settings I can, but I have NO intentions to overclock. (Infact, I didnt even get a k series processor, so I couldnt if I wanted too). With that said I did buy a CPU cooling fan.

SO - should I use this fan since I bought it already - or should I go with the Intel fan that was already provided and just return the cooling fan to Amazon. Below are my specs.

Any and all advice is appreciated!

Fan purchased: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan

Intel Core i5-4670 3.4Ghz Quad-Core
GIGABYTE GA-Z87M-D3H Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
MSI Gaming GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card
Crucial Ballistix Sport 8GB (2 x 4GB) Memory

Unless you need the money, just use the EVO, it will be quieter and cooler than your stock fan.
