Which CPU Cooler? Can a heatsink too close to GPU increase temps? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Yes you will get more degrees cooler on your cpu giving you room for oc or whatever you want and barely notice an increase on your gpu it will be minimal and even possibly none depending how your airflow is and everything

For a decent gaming system with, let's say a GTX770 and a 3570k@4-4,4GHz you dont need to overthink it, especially if you own a Case like the Haf X wich offers MORE than enough airflow. Usually one intake and one exhaust fan is all you really need if you dont plan to force any unnecessary oc results.
