Hello all,

I am brand stinkin' new on this forum and love the atmosphere here! I am currently building my *first* computer ever and have NO idea how cooling works and what all I need to properly cool my PC. Below is a link to my computer parts so far. Given the case I am using, what all would you guys recommend to keep the entire thing cool? I'd be using the PC for a lot of gaming.

Thanks!
 
Alot of people around here buy this cooler:

Although I'm not so fond of the design. Cooler Master has just come out with a revised version of that cooler which seems to make more sense from a cooling efficiency standpoint. Here it is. It's the cooler I recommend:

Unfortunately, they're not in stock at Amazon yet, so you have to get it from Newegg.
