Are "Cooler Master DP5-7H53F High-Performance HSF" and the "Kool Maxx Video cooling system" any good when it comes to cooling? I really can't do anything about it because that what comes with the system but I am wondering if I need to buy better cooling systems when I start to overclock.... My case has 6 fan slots so...

You can change anything you want to change. The cooler master can definately be improved upon with a Volcano 7+. The Kool Max has its fans.

Only 6 fan slots? You may need to cut some more holes - just kidding, but look around & see what others are doing.

That or the Digital Doc, both beat having nothing.

No, but some motherboards can monitor the CPU temp with the proper software.

As long as you're satisfied with it. Good luck with the OC.

The Digidoc 5 can handle a hard drive being mounted in it as well and his has a couple fans the blow are over the HD. It also has 8 temperature probes, which might be useful in mapping temp profile. Not trying to change your mind, just another option.

Good luck :wave:

You can find a Digital Doc pretty much anywhere. I know that you can find at NewEgg, Directron, and Cooler Guys. Those are all in the US. I would imagine that most of your Friendly neighborhood etailers/retailers would probably have one. The Digidoc 5, I believe is the latest iteration.

www.newegg.com has had consistently low prices on them.
