    Does the use of an aftermarket cooler void  cpu warranty?

    Blackraven

      Hi, I just brought a sandy bridge i5-2500.

      Will using a corsair h-50 water cooler void any warranty that comes with the said processor?

       

      also , what is a good brand of ram to go with it, using an : Intel DP67BGB3 "Extreme" series motherboard

       

      Your help is greatly appreciated in advance!

       

      Thanks!

          Hello,

          Yes, the usage of third party fan&heatsink void the Intel warranty on your processor. The Intel fan is made to keep the Intel processor working correctly. When we run the processor without the original fan means we are running the system out of the specifications and it may damage the processor. In regards your second question, bear in mind the memory controller is embedded on the processor and the memory specifications are determined by the CPU. In this case the i5-2500 supports memory up to 1333Mhz and with a memory voltage of 1.5V (this is highly recommend). Keep the memory under those numbers for a stable system.
