I just purchased a whole bunch of stuff for my new pc, and waiting to have everything delivered so I can start building. Here are my specs:
Case - Cooler Master Elite 310
1x Stock 120mm Rear Fan
1x Cooler Master 2000RPM Side panel 120mm fan
1x Cooler Master front panel 120mm fan
Motherboard - ASUS P8P76 LE Socket 1155 Intel P67
CPU - Intel Core i7-2600, 3.4 ghz, 8mb L3 Cache
Memory - 4x4 Corsair Vengeance 16gb 1600MHz
Video Card - Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6950 2GB PCI-E 2.0
Sound Card - Asus Xonar DX - 7.1 Channel
Power Supply - Cooler Master Silent Pro 1000W
Hard Drive - Seagate Barracuda Green 2TB
Optical Drive - Samsung 12x BD/ 16x DVD/ CD Burner/player
Network Adapter - TP LINK 150 Wireless N
1) Will the 1 stock fan and the 2 fans that I install be sufficient enough in keeping my computer cool?
2) I'm afraid my PC may be too powerful. Is liquid cooling necessary/something to consider?
3) What exactly is a Chipset fan? and where is it located? Is that something to consider as well?
4) What about Video Card & Memory fans?
I just really don't want my PC to over heat...
