✔ Best Answer
You're obviously trying to build on a budget but you should rethink your configuration. Here's my 2 cents:

- Dump the Cool Master CPU cooler & just use the stock unit that comes with the CPU. Take the $39 savings & invest it in a decent motherboard. Get a board based on the H87 chipset & has 4 memory slots. The ASRock H87M Pro4 would be a good choice.

- Dump the Corsair 600W PSU & get the SilverStone ST50F-ES 500W. It will be more than adequate for your build. Put the savings toward a better graphics card.

- The GT 630 is NOT a gaming card, it's an HTPC card. It's nothing more than a rebranded GT 430 with a higher clock speed. Don't be fooled because it has 2GB memory. That much memory is useless on a low end card, plus it's slow DDR3 memory rather than fast GDDR5. Consider the Asus R7250-1GD5.

I am using the Intel Pentium G3420 3.2GHz Dual-Core Processor, are you 100% sure it comes with a cpu cooler?

"are you 100% sure it comes with a cpu cooler?"

Yes. Do a search of the model number from your parts list - BX80646G3420

This post is 3 years old and solved, why are you responding to it?

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
