I may upgrade and overclock in a years time considering the Intel Haswells and Nvidia 700 Series coming out and use this current budget system as a side PC for friends who often come over to LAN.

You dont need any additional fans per se, neither a CPU Cooler. If you want something better/more silent than stock, then either get the CM 212 Evo ($35) or the TX3 Evo. ($25)

If you want the best, i'd suggest:
a)
5x

+

b)

or

depending if you want a heatpipe based cooler or a water cooler.

Ok thanks Elohim.

How is this? http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_23&products_id=22315 Corsair H55

The Noctua seems a bit heavy and the Swifttech is quite expensive but i don't mind buying it.

It's not quite as good as the Noctua and comes with a crappy fan in comparison. And compared to a heatpipe based cooler you always have an additional moving part wich is the pump, wich a) makes additional noise and b) can potentially fail...

i would personally highly recommend the U14S. I never ever heard of anyone having problems with even heavier coolers like the Noctua D14 or Thermalright Silver Arrow for example.I also have tested at least 100 different heatsinks on different boards and never had a problem, it's a non issue!

That being said, if for whatever reason you insist on buying an AIO liquid cooler the H55 is an OK choice. It will do a decent job of cooling your CPU, it just has significant downsides and no real advantages aside from maybe aesthetics (wich is a personal preference obviously) and it's quite expensive in comparison.
