Yes. Although it comes with a stock cooler. However looking your saved part list the build could use some work, that CPU is two gens old going on 3 soon.

Technically the Intel stock cooler would work but it's just bad. Even without overclocking I think it's worth investing in an aftermarket cooler. For as little as $20 you can get a cpu cooler miles ahead of Intel's stock cooler. Plus it's just ugly as all hell.

I'm looking to get an Air Cooling arrangement for my CPU, but can't find the part anywhere. I'm looking to get the Prolimatech Armageddon Blue that will cool an i7 6700 on an LGA1151 socket. I want to couple the cooler with a 140mm fan that has blue LED lighting. Thinking that would look pretty Skookum. Any ideas where I might pick up one of these bad boys?
