Setup and Cpu Air cooler

Hello, I am new to PC building but I have done a ton of research. I was wondering if my build is compatible and if Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo CPU Cooler will fit my case (Sentey GS-Optimus 6000)

Also new to this Forum :)

Thank you

P.S. I will mostly be playing Starcraft 2

Build:
Intel I5 4690k 3.5Ghz (I want to overclock to 4.0ghz - 4.3ghz)
Sentey GS-Optimus 6000 Mid Sized Tower
Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo
Arctic Silver 5 thermal compound
MSI ATX z97-g45 Gaming motherboard
Corsair CX Series 600 Watt Modular
Seagate Barracuda 1tb 7200rpm
Samsung 224 DB/BEBE Optical Drive
Corsair Vengeance 2 x 4 8GB RAM
EVGA GeForce 750Ti GDDR5 2GB

  1. according to http://www.sentey.com/en/optimus-black-gs-6000 CPU Cooler Max. Size 150mm and according to http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-air-cooler/hyper-212-evo/ Dimension 120 x 80 x 159 mm (LxBxH)

    so ur 9mm short ^~^
  2. I've been Rekt, thanks for your response, Any cases you recommend? I want something with at least 2 fans of included and that can fit the cpu cooler, unless theres any other good air coolers that fit in the optimus. :) thanks

    what about a c70 case? it can support up to 2 on the top, 1 on the back, 2in front, 2 on the bottom(if you remove the bottom drive cage) and one on the side of the upper drive cage. it also has cable brackets for excellent cable management. and btw the c70 comes with 3fans stock which look similar to the corsair sp 120s but a little bootlegged version of it :)

    and just saying but an i5-4690k will run sc2 at medium frames by itself LOL i know this because i had to rma my gtx 970 and had to run my pc off my cpu. lol no lag and works perfectly fine in medium i haven't tried to push it just because i don't care for the quality in sc2 :) just thought that'd be worth mentioning
  4. Sorry for my noobyness but are you saying that I don't need a graphics card? I too don't really care about the quality as long as I can play lmao, I'll look into the case. thank you
  5. for medium settings for sc2 you don't need a graphics card lol

    just keep all your drivers updated i use an easy way which is driver booster 2... (look up videos or posts about the code to get the pro version)

    all this and you'll be able to run it perfectly fine. :)

    and i'm running my system with an msi gaming 7 mobo and i5-4690k cpu and i run sc2 on medium settings perfectly fine :)
  6. once u start playing sc2 ull probs wanna go play more graphically demanding games, the integrated on an i5 isnt that great, ive got a i5 4670k and a r9 280x fyi. i would get a graphics card, heck crank ur graphics to max :)

    edit : forgeting to answer ur question
    BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 3 will just fit at 150mm
    else u can get any single rad water cooler ^~^ silence (almost) :)

  7. i'm only plat but as far as graphics go i can run a game like nexus wars pretty easy o.o

    if sc2 is all you'll be doing then i5 4690k will all you be needing.
  8. Can someone explain how the exhaust and intake fans work? I understand the concept but how would you get a fan to suck out instead of pushing air inside
  9. a push pull configuration is like two fans pushing THROUGH a radiator and pull is a fan or two on the opposite side of the radiator

    so... um... picture...

    >> || >>

    push,radiator, pull.

    to suck air out you'd be pulling air and not pushing if that helps.

    so if that doesn't make sense then..

    basically get a fan... see where it blows or spin the fans manually and see where the pressure is. aim the pressure of the fan or the side of the fan out of your case or radiator.

    just look at that and you just want to aim your fan so that it pushes air out rather than in. again with air pressure

    just fyi if you're going to push air out of your case i'd go for something like corsair af fans. cheap and reliable. but if you're using to push air in or through a radiator i'd go for corsair sp fans.

  13. So basically just turn it around? So that it sucks in air from the case and pushes it out?
  14. how a fan works in a build is say you want to push air in right you'll mount the fan on whereever you want to mount it whether it be top, bottom or sides... you need fans pushing cold air in and then you need a fan or two to push the hot air out from inside the case. i don't know what you mean by turn it around because say you have a fan in the front of your case and you're pushing air into the case from the outside. the fan would still be aimed in the same direction but instead of having the exhaust fan to push the air out in front of the case you want to put it in the back of the case.

    it's the same concept of pushing air into the case you just choose where to take air from by positioning the fans. does this help? i'd just google pc fan configuration and there will be like arrows and etc.
