Hi, I'm going to do my first build soon, and I'm pretty set with my part list. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Zambonie/saved/JnLFf7 And just looking through it, I was thinking if I should water cool the cpu (maybe gpu) I'm going to pretty much be playing stuff such as Portal 2, Minecraft with SEUS shaders, mods, and resource (texture) packs, SimCity 5, and some other games such as Destiny and Need For Speed all on high/ultra at most of the time 1080p (I don't do much recording). (I might get Crysis 3 in the future.) I will also run background apps such as Spotify, Chrome, File Explorer, Steam Client, and Skype all the time. I will also plan to overclock my CPU to from 4.0GHz to 4.3 or 4.5GHz and maybe overclock my GPU. Will the CPU Cooler (Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO) All Handle that, or should I possibly just switch out for a water cooler, maybe also water cool my GPU to? And, please don't post anything like "Your Specs Can't Run That!" or "You should upgrade this or that" or "That's to expensive" as they all don't relate to my question.
