Hey guys, I have some questions regarding my upcoming new PC. To begin with, these are the specs (might still change):
Processor: Intel i7 6700k or Intel i7 6700.
CPU Fan: Hyper 212x
Motherboard: Maximus VII Ranger/other ROG ASUS 1151 socket motherboard
GPU: GTX 980 4GB/Strix 1080
RAM: 2x8GB Avexir
PSU: V850 Cooler Master
My first question is basically this: Will the Cooler Master Hyper 212x enough to cool the i7 6700(k)? I wouldn't mind not overclocking. I'm sure it's more than capable even if it's not overclocked. So will the 212x be enough?
Secondly, I'm so scared of ruining these components by static charge. I'm thinking of buying an anti-static wrist strap just to be sure, then again, do I really need one?
Moreover, if I did have one, what is the right way of using it? Do I plainly have to connect the alligator-clamp to a bare metal? (PSU screw, PSU body, non-painted part of the case, etc.) Most importantly, the PSU should be plugged in but turned off right?
Thank you for reading, I am just so paranoid to ruin these expensive components.
