great, thanks everyone for the input! Are there any specific products you can suggest? i looked at the cheapest water cooling system from corsair but i think that might have too many things that can go wrong with it compared to a simple heat sink and fan

Any water loop will be a fan on the radiator and a pump.
The only way to have less moving parts is a simple heatsink with a fan. At 150W I'd suggest a fan, but if it has working room up till 300F, you can probably get away with a large passive cooler, or a fan with a thermostat sensor.

I got alot better temperatures on my old I5 2500k @ 5.0ghz with a cooler master hyper 212+ compared to a corsair h70 water-cooling loop.
Arctic silver mk5 thermal paste was used on both setups but I was 5 degrees cooler with air cooling and the same 2 fans. If noise is an issue for you then you would want to go with a bigger radiator similar to the corsair H100 and 4 low rpm fans. Bottom line 35 dollars for the cooler master heat sink and two yateloon fans from micrcenter.com was my best option for me because I didn't mind the noise and the h70 I believe didn't have a fast enough water pump to get the job done. I never seen over 60C with the cooler master and was more than 3 times cheaper than the water cooling loop.

thanks again everyone! we ended up using some basic fans and heatsinks from Alltex. Worked like a charm
