By Wednesday i get all my computer parts EXCEPT my Kraken X52 CPU-cooler, Can i just build it and leave the cpu open? Or should i wait till i get my cooler?

Does the CPU come with a stock cooler? I would not run the PC without some kind of cooler!


Yes, it's 2871 as in the year 2871. I traveled all this way, back in time, just to help you. And you thought your mama lied when she said you were special-_-

without anything above the CPU, don`t. You`ll only risk killing it, without any reason.

Put stock cooler on, if possible, or don`t put the CPU in


to game or not to game, that`s the question

I wont run it tho, forgot to mention. but its an I7-6700k. only wanna build it yet but not sure if thats the best thing to do

Building it is fine, just don't power it on. I wouldn't even test if it posts without the cooler, it's such a silly reason to potentially damage the CPU.

Is it possible to install the CPU after i install everything? I7-6700k, Asus Maximus viii hero, Coolermaster mastercase maker 5.

EDIT: depends on your case and mobo cutout, it probably is possible in the mastercase, but will also be harder to do

possible yes, but it's easier outside of the case. don't see a reason why you shouldn't put it in from the start, just don't power it on and your fine.

you could even close the side panel if you like ;) 

But i have to install the cpu cooler in later and that needs a backplate then? How can i fit that when i already put the mobo in the case? or is there a cutout at the back of the case?

the master case has afaik a cutout for the cooler, should be no problem. It might be even easier if the mobo is already installed because that way, it can't move
