New Build - 3rd Party Cooler question.

#1DankBombersPosted 10/23/2013 9:02:38 AM
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!

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