In all honestly, if you are building a system and dont know what you need I wouldnt do it!
Lets say you spend all this money on parts etc.
Now are you going to be able to put it all together and make it work?

Have you ever built a system before?

If the answer is no, dont do it!
Get a shop to assemble it for you.
In the beginning there was the command line.

Unless the processor is a retail box unit you will need to get a heatsink and fan as previously posted (the link shows the latest offering from Zalman and the most popular units) You will also need to get thermal paste Artic silver 5 is the recommended the 6.00 tube should do the trick.

Edit: If this is your first unit you have built please feel free to ask any questions you may have :thumbsup:

It seems that someone has forgotten that the purpose of this forum is to help people just like you.

Don't be discouraged by that suggestion, if you want help building this computer you will find that the the staff here will do what ever we can to help you.
