I have the Hero VII and have been very happy with it. Needed a BIOS update to play nice with Windows 10 but otherwise no issues and does everything I need of it.

There are several versions of the VIII.  Is there really any difference between the 200 and 400 one?

Ok, I was an idiot.  I got everything for the upgrade, but I got the CPU that did not come with a cooling unit.  Any cooling units that you all recommend that is NOT water cooled?

 

I was thinking the  Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120mm PWM Fan (RR-212E-20PK-R2)

 

Thanks.

If you're dead set on air cooling the Hyper 212 is pretty much the Ford F150 of air coolers. Very popular and gets the job done reasonably well.

 

Not sure why you're set against liquid cooling though? I've had a great experience with my Corsair H110i GT...

Thanks Cel.  I just don't want to deal with another component to cooling.
