I use it for gaming, IT'S AWESOME.
So you use the stock cooler?
Yeah, the CPU isn't unlocked so there's really no need for a better cooler.
Cool, something like the noctua low profile cooler could be a simple upgrade if you wanted to. If it's sufficient it really doesn't matter, I just like silent fans on locked cpu builds.
I would be down for one of those, but they're just so ugly! Cream and brown would definitely stick out in a build of all red/black. My computer runs fairly quiet though, and I'm not all that interested in it running dead silent anyhow.
I think it has a 120 mm fan so you could swap it out. Really doesn't matter though.
That CPU is craving a nice cooler :)
What are your temps, though? I'm curios, that's a sweet case.
Thanks! I was certainly impressed by the case myself, although there is a little bit of a gap on the side that could use work. Temps are pretty average, sits at around 40 idle and around 60 at high usage. Since it's not unlocked, there was really no need to put in a better cooler. It would be nice just so I could put in an LED fan, but I'm not about to drop an extra $30-$40 for just that.
Little late on this reply lol Looks good to me, although you really don't need 750w on your power supply. That build could also probably get away with a micro ATX if you wanted to save some money on the board/case. I would definitely bump up the CPU if it's not too much more, but that one is good if it's a sizable increase in price.
