Would you recommend water cooling for an AMD FX-8320 chip?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
From what I read, this chip is powerful and can even be OC'd. That is something I would like to try. Nothing to extreme since this is my first build. Just a little nudge in performance. Also, from reading around apparently the AMD chips can run hot. Is this a situation where water cooling would be beneficial? I'm not looking for a pricey solution, maybe an H60 from Corsair.

You guys think that is ok, or should I stick to air cooling?

The AMD Vishera CPU are extremely easy to overclock (assuming that your motherboard's BIOS supports overclocking.
Temperatures are not a problem with mild overclocks.
Heat can be a problem with heavy overclocks though.
