Will I need a decent cooler if my ambient is 80-95+?

I'm building a college/light gaming computer(1) and I can't guarantee the ambient temps will be conditioned and summers get surprisingly hot up here in south Michigan. Right now I'm going with the Cryoig C7 which is juuuust a little better than thee stock cooler.

My question is would it go too far throwing a Cryoig C1 in my mini-ITX build to anticipate summer heat?

Edit: Sorry, that's 80-95+ F, not Celcius. v.v

The C7 is barely any better than the stock cooler so I would just stick to the stock cooler. It should be good enough.

On a side note way too much for that PSU, you could get a 450 watt Corsair CXM which is better for a lot cheaper. Too much for those HDD's since they are slow and you can get faster drives for cheaper.

It has better HDD's. it has a much better GPU , a better PSU, and I saved a lot money.

I agree, and thank you for the reply, but over half of those savings is knocking off Windows 10 Pro and I don't want Home and it's forceful updates. >_<

The ram I got has been fluctuating a lot... It was 39.99 when I first chose it.

Also I chose those HDD's because they are slower and likely quieter. I have family and wanna reduce noise where I can. I wouldn't gop with the stock cooler for the same reason.

But you didn't answer my question! ;_;

Well still, I saved at least some..

The ram I got has been fluctuating a lot... It was 39.99 when I first chose it.

RAM prices are changing a lot right now, RAM prices are stable as quick sand.

Also I chose those HDD's because they are slower and likely quieter.

They are pretty quiet HDD's.

I wouldn't gop with the stock cooler for the same reason.

If you care about noise the C7 wouldn't be a bad choice. Although looking at the completed builds it seems to be able to fit a Cryorig M9i so I would get that instead.

But you didn't answer my question! ;_;

X3 Yes, you did. Yaaa I noticed, RAM.. I don't know what I'll end up with when the time comes. I will take your word for it with the HDD's, then!

I have read good things about C7's noise, yes, I just feared the summer heat would be too much for it. I don't tihnk the M9i will fit in the 250D, PCPP doesn't even give me the choice when browsing for CPU coolers.

According to PCPP it doesn't fit but coolers of similar height or greater have been able to fit in it.
