Cpu Cooler to OC the 2500k?
You can get a high CFM fan like the Turbine Master Mach 1.8 which pushes tons of air onto the GPUs.

Personally though, I would try to get a better case with better cable management.

If you want to OC, you will need an aftermarket cooler, you know, that huge metal thing on top of your CPU, also called a HSF or heatsink.

Also, well, because stock Intel coolers suck!

Yeah, the stock intel coolers suck.

Pick up a Coolermaster Hyper 212+, they are only $30 and should get you to 4.5GHz with reasonable temps.

Might want to look into a better case, Corsair 400R/500R are great sub $100 cases.

And that PSU is good for SLI in the future.

It would be best to get a cooler. Always easier to install one the first time round than doing it again later. Try to get the CoolerMaster 212 plus, it's a good budget cooler. The HAF 912 is a good alternative case, with great airflow possiblities and good cable management, so its something to consider.

I picked that case because my brothers will give it to me for free but if there are any good cases you can recommend for around $50-$150 i will probably buy a new one.

ty for the help

IMO, I don't like Hyper 212+, only get it if it's a MUST (low budget)
