H40 from corsair fatter rad are get H100 and antec are nice too but thermaltake has nice ones too

corsair H100 dual rad
CORSAIR H40 single rad
Thermaltake CLW0217 Water 2.0 Extreme dual rad
Thermal-take WATER2.0 Pro single rad Closed-Loop
i recommend the thermal-take more then the corsair though as you can see all of thermal-take has 5 stars

I didn't understand any of that....

@deathlikeeric: I have a few questions. 1: how much money do you have to spend.

2: What CPU do you have and how much do you want to overclock it

3: would you consider air cooling if I told you it was a lot better for a lower budget.

Intel g520? is that overclockable even? I'd get the Antec Kuhler h2o 620 myself, but if the processor isn't overclockable, I'd go for an Air-cooler like the Cooler Master Hyper 212+

I would second this.

How are those Thermaltake coolers the top?? I have not heard of those coolers. Antec 620 or Corsair are the top Closed Loop Sysytems that everyone talks about for a reason.

Another thing. (And this is something that should have been asked along with budget and amount he/she wants to overclock.)


WHAT CASE?

Typical HTPC cases will not be able to house a 240 rad anyway. So why would you recommend one? For that Intel G520 I would go with the H50. You can usually find one at a good price. Here's a amazon Link.

But a Cooler master Hyper 212+ would be perfect. If it fits in the case.
