    If you want a quick, budget CPU cooler for a basic overclock, go for the Cooler master Hyper 212 EVO. For a more serious overclock, or an upgrade later, consider the Noctua NH-D14 or the be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 3 for air coolers. For an AIO water cooling system, consider the Corsair H100i or H110.

    If you're only doing gaming, there isn't a lot of performance difference between an i5 4670K and an i7 4770K, apart from the i5 is much much cheaper. And seeing as you're only doing a small overclock, there's not loads of point getting the i7 4790K, which is designed to be heavily overclocked, without a more expensive, better CPU cooler.

    anyway, I build this pc for gaming, but someone told me I should do some oc while gaming
    so I pick up the gaming 7 (i dont know is there has anyother mb can do this one bottom oc thing?)

    I never turn off my pc, and I put it in my room, so I do need a quiet CPU cooler for sure!(nice、cheap、and quiet)
    so....any info about it? u mean it good? or???

    Best budget cooler money can buy

    Also go 4670K for gaming, 4770K is unnecessary money spent, that can be used on a better GPU, which is more important for your gaming adventures.
     
    64K says thanks.

    You can overclock the i5 4670K too, or you could wait for the i5 4690K if you want, which is being released soon. A bigger, better CPU cooler can always be bought later if you want for more overclocking in the future. But for now, the CM Hyper 212 EVO is currently the most solid budget CPU cooler on the market. No doubt.

    Well, the best thing to do here, if you haven't bought the i7 is to get i5 4th gen like i5-4670k (overclockable multiplier)...difference in gaaming is nothing..it can be max in 1-2 games a year 5%..So if you get i5, you save around 110$ and pour the money into GPU and get a better one...cand just get Hyper Evo 212 , it is so much popular...Excellent heat pipes and fan for a very nice price..

    EDIT: Your selection also depends on which types of game you play strategy or action-adventure-shooter..if you don't play strategy games then follow the above method, if you dont like to play action..blah blah then you kind of need good cpu horsepower and you can think about keeping this build, after multicore usage in ps4, strategy games will drain the cpus surely..
    If you game at anything less than 1440p then, i5 and better gpu will do..
