i probably will, but i need it to fit in my NZXT Phantom and i want to put in the big 200mm side fan too...so i guess well see when i do the measurements.

also, this question being like, nothing for nothing, whats the upkeep someone would have to do on a low end water cooling setup?

stock cooler on 2500k is pretty weak, its noticeably less heavy than say, stock cooler of e6600

h50/h60/h70/h80/h100 all in one closed water loop none. rasa rs 240 kit little but not sure on how much is needed only had mine for 3 weeks or so. Everything still fine and water look clear. mybe someone can add.

But hyper 212 plus for $25-$30 would be the best for the price as long as you only plan on 4.5ghz oc.

If I were you, I'd just get after market cooler.
Since you have 2500k and you'd want to OC it soon or later. (Most likey sooner )
I'm glad I got my cooler when I built it....
Since I knew couldn't stop myself from OC it the day I built it...
My clock was set to 4.6 on the day 1.... I'm sure you'd want it.
