Yeah I pretty much said that already, however, if you go with one of the cheap prebuilt ones you will not see very good temp changes(thermal take and the like around $100). Your best bet is to build your own(for a little more money) There is actualy someone selling a realy nice setup for around $175 on this forum, and that system would serve you great, with way better temps then you would ever see with air.

I guess the main thing is how much do you want to spend? That will narrow your options depending on your maximum budget.

I'm willing to spend anywhere from $200 - $400. (Possibly even more if necessary.)

you might want to check this out. If you are looking for a good gpu cooler for around $400. Most places are sold out so might have to wait to get it, but from the reviews I have read it is a nice cooler, and it fits in the case. This is a cpu only cooler. I was thinking of going with this and a seperate cooler for my gpu's.
