My First Build Review

Please review build from link above.

This was more of a value build and I was looking to get value out of each component. I have a good processor, (i3-4360, 3.7Ghz) I was wondering what I should purchase for CPU cooling as this is my first build I don't really know much about the topic. I thought that a fan came in the CPU package but I am not certain. Should I buy a fan, thermal compound etc.

I would like to use the integrated graphics on the CPU but would consider buying a very cheap video card.

Also just want to confirm that everything is compatible too. Thanks!

  • Under typical/normal use, included processor heatsink is sufficient. Consider aftermarket cooling if noise, desire to keep temperatures cooler than norm due to overclocking or just preference... is a factor to you.
  • If you decide to purchase aftermarket cooling, check for the content list of the cooler. Many decent models include a small tube/package of thermal compound, which should be sufficient for at least one application, if not two or more.
