Processor Cooling
When ordering a powerful processor, it is also important to ensure you order a processor cooler that is sufficient enough to efficiently remove the heat being produced by the processor. For the majority of processors, the default fan is sufficient.

If you're planning on ordering a high end gaming or video editing system, we strongly recommend you budget for a more advanced processor cooler, such as a heatpipe cooler or a "liquid cooling" based cooler. These more advanced processor coolers will remove the heat from your processor more effectively and also help keep your other components, such as your graphics card cooler by reducing the overall amount of heat left inside your computer.
