Yeah, I was going to take a look via search here in a few. I don't think I will be OC at all.

You can save your money on the K chip and Z series board and the memory for that matter and put it towards the fastest non K CPU available and perhaps bump your GPU up...but this IS an overclocking forum redface.gif
If i would go for a non overclocking rig, Would the stock intel cooler be sufficient? And what cpu would you reccomend?

I'd still look at after market cooler over the Intel one. Those intel coolers are fine for temporary use, but they are garbage.

Gigabyte H77N wifi I know will fit redface.gif
I got the MSI Z87 board, its basically the Gamer board, minus a few features and paint from what I can tell...not to sure it will fit myself

But since there wont be any overclocking, would a noctua nh l9i be enough? And the intel cooler can't be that bad. two friends of mine have been running on them almost a year now. They have had no problems.

The stock coolers are noisier and temps can go anywhere from 15-20 degrees higher depending on the CPU that you are using.

You have to see what the rating is on the CPU you are looking at for thermal/wattage vs. what the NHL-9i is rated at.

Nice board. I do like the color scheme too that MSI has gone with.

Looking around at air coolers a bit more and based on the conversations we had last month, it still seems like the Thermalright AXP-100 is a very good cooler at 5.8 inches/58mm. This will allow for those that also have taller ram heat sinks to use that style of ram and I bet the top side panel fan will fit perfectly.

Looking at This review, i can see there is a 13 celsius difference. I think I will go for the noctua and an i5 4440. Or maybe a Xeon processor.
