More about system fine aftermarket coolers
  1. As long as you're not overclocking, the stock cooler will work well enough.
  2. You will be fine. Amazon shows the Hyper 212 for about $30.00 US. This is very reasonable for a very good upgraded cooler.

    As long as it's a good PSU: Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, Silverstone, Rosewill (Capstone series) or FSP (Aurium series) will do the trick nicely.
    Some say the stock Intel cooler is noisy under load and it does tend to run a little hot, if you can, try to work something like the Hyper 212 Evo into the build.

    Just a little addition: XFX PSUs are great as well, but if you go for Corsair, get something from their TX, HX or AX line of products; The rest are not so great.

    i cant find the hyper 212 evo in south africa dude any other recomendations at the lowest price that will do a good job thanx
  7. I'd build the system stock for now, as planned, apart from a little noise there's nothing wrong about the boxed Intel cooler with the CPU running at stock speed, you can always add an aftermarket cooler later on, when funds permit, if you find it's needed.
    If you DO decide to add a stronger CPU cooler, I suggest you start a new thread and provide links to south African sites so we can see what's available in your country, otherwise everyone will be suggesting the Hyper 212 Evo...Again. ;)
    And yes, the XFX Pro series power supplies are also good.

  9. hey thanx for the reply heres a link to some cpu collers in sa http://www.takealot.com/computers/cpu-fans-10092?pagesize=50 and how good will a Corsair - VS Series VS650 650W Power Supply Unit be good enough for a gtx 780 or a r9 290 thanx?
  10. if all your bios settings are normal, then even if temperatures go high, the cpu will throttle itself down.... and if things are extreme, it will shutdown..... everything is fool prrof these days(except human stupidity maybe). anyway you can at least get something really cheap, deep cool has some really cheap but good coolers.... and honestly 550W to 600W is more than enough for you build even if you overclock..... I still dun get it why people go for overkill PSU.....

    awsome thanx for the reply man will be getting my cpu next month one thing i would like to know though a R9 290 can i run one without any extra cooling thanx?
  12. As long you get a good non-reference R9 290, it should be fine with the temperature. Of course you need to make sure you have good case airflow. The cooler master k380 is enough as long you have fans on the front pulling air in and the top/back of the case have fans exhausting air.
