The only way that you can at least ALMOST guarantee a decent overclock(IMO) is buying expansive versions... HOF, Lightning, Kingpin, Classified, etc...

I would stay away from anything with a single 8-pin and a shoddy cooler, if you want a decent OC. You'll still need to win the lottery if your goal is an awesome OC. thumb.gif

then people should look more into iChill one, always heard that is the best air cooler in the market but never saw almost anyone buying it, don't know the reason tough

edit: ok, the reason should be because almost aways they have awful cooler design redface.gif

Wrong.

The one with the most RGB will always wins.

I think the whole 8+8 vs 8+6 is moot with anything on air or water. You will not be needing 8+8. The biggest takeaway is you just need something above a single 8-pin.
