I am working on this build and have about all the parts except the cooler. I changed the case to a Corsair Spec 3 and now find that a Coolermaster 212 Evo wont fit in the case.

Any suggestions for the FX6300 cooler? I plan to overclock.

Also I only have a Corsair 500W PSU. The build looks like it is about 410 estimated wattage before overclocking. If I overclock the CPU would I need a new PSU?

Thanks Zero

You're going to want a new PSU, or there is going to be some failure issues depending on how much you oc it. Corsair water cooling would do you fine until you could upgrade. I would upgrade to 550W or 600W PSU. Antec or Corsair.

Thanks for the info. I have a 600W that I was going to use on another build. I will swap it out.

How about a Corsair H60 water cooled?
