As for an Air Cooling option. How about this?

Rosewill RCX-Z1 Long life ball bearing for over 45,000/hrs CPU Cooler

and I can replace the fan with a noctua fan

Cooler Master Hyper T2 - Compact CPU Cooler with Dual Looped Direct Contact Heatpipes

Or use the stock heatsink?

You will need to replace the stock cooler for over 1.25 volts. It can theoretically "keep it cool" but that will require the fan to spin up really fast and loud. I belive the T2 is the best of those coolers but I am no expert on those lower end HSF's.

As for the stock cooler, it should handle between 4 and 4.3 Ghz depending on the OC. A MSI gaming board will do a 4.3 Ghz Auto OC @ 1.256vcore (27c to 74c with a 5 year old H60).

I've seen comparisons to I5 in some games, but in multiplayer stuff, it seems to bog down. BF3 starts stuttering at about 12 to 16 players (or at least mine did). But I did have all the settings either maxed or close to it, and didn't boot into a single monitor setup like I use to do when I played it alot on my old system...

But the g3258 is cheap, and you can always upgrade it later. And the longer it last, the cheaper a I5/7 will be..... At least that's my line of thought on it... It's a great little chip...

The H50 is so dated by today's standards of AIOs it isn't even funny.



H50 can't even beat 7 year old single tower coolers like the Titan Ferir or coolers considered rubbish by today's standards like Cooler Master V10.

To the OP, listening to some of the purest types here can put you in the poor house. For instance, how many have told you about getting windows keys on rededit? I and several here have used this guy (Windows 8.1 Pro $25) without any issues. He's legit and keys are real....

And check out PCpartpicker. You can set it to only use Amazon, and it will point out any compatibility issues and give you an estimated wattage needed...

750 watts is way overkill for that system, how about this one instead since you say you dont want to cheap out?
Rosewill SilentNight

Dont get a Corsair AIO cooler, reason for that is you can air coolers that are better cost less and make less noise and are way more reliable
Last dont get a Corsair PSU either you can get just as good and better for less money elsewhere, take the HXi you picked the EVGA SuperNova G2 is better and cost less.

I really don't trust Newegg reviews the majority of people who do the reviews don't know what they are doing. So they screw it up and end breaking something when they do a build. That is why i ask you folks on what is the best way to do a build. Newegg reviews are good like Wikipedia . You get the basics down and go from there.

The vast majority of reviewers on Newegg are novices who really have no idea what they are doing. And the reviews that are real usually get 100/100 thumbs down by other novices who just bought or are thinking about buying the product and aren't happy with the negative review. They are about as bad of a resource that you could use to determine how good a product is. Most of the reviews claiming a product is dead or broken are like you said, the fault of the reviewer.

The parts I have bought off Newegg or amazon have always been solid. Its not like the companies you buy from are going to sell you broken parts. They would loose money in an RMA process.
