If your going with air cooling, I would suggest checking out a sticky by Shadowclock: Link

Ask any questions you have. OCN is a great place for answers and real, hands on experience.

Alright i'll give it a go. Looking for one for my Core 2 Quad, 775 socket of course. I heard you can get a good one for around 30-40? That would be great because I have a few other parts I need to buy. But if not, let me know.

For that price a cm 212+ with extra 120mm fan for push/pull would be your best bet

Awesome that is one I was looking at! When you say extra fan you mean to buy one or it has one?

Just wanted to post a few things for Mr. Charles or anyone that's going to look into water cooling.
I don't want to insult or disparage anyone but I also know it's not right to use someones pics out of context so I'm linking the posts.

This guy spent a lot of money getting a top of the line Swiftech Apogee XT water block (same as mine) then he's got it connected backwards: http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...ml#post7969899

This guy lists himself as a water cooler but this is a really bad idea: http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...ml#post8894298

This is right and I like the green, a 340 rad on just the cpu will really keep it cool if those fans are any good: http://www.overclock.net/computer-cases/392179-cooler-master-haf-932-922-club-184.html#post8894857

I may find more, check back and I'll list the number of edits in the edit box.

The CM Hyper212+ comes with 1, 120mm fan. You'll want to order a 2nd, 120mm fan along with it for a Push/Pull. I think the CM R4 120mm is like $5.99 and the cooler is around $30

If I didn't buy the 2nd fan, would my temperatures still be alright?
Not saying I won't get it, just wondering. If I did though I would certainly have questions on installing later on lol

Well, the general purpose of a 2nd fan is for a push & pull affect.

<<<AIR FLOW<<<[FAN][HEAT-SINK][FAN]<<<AIR FLOW<<<

With 2 fans installed, you will be optimizing the dissipation of hot air. Where as, if you only had 1 fan, it would still dissipate the heat, but just not as well. For $5, why not optimize it, right?

Yes the 212+ is a capable cooler with only 1 fan. Would be better in p/p. The 212+ is in the top 10 best sub $80 coolers and in top 3 sub $40 coolers
