Expensive air cooling would be close to the temps that kit would achieve. For more overall performance Id sell your current mobo and cpu and get a little better setup so that x850 can get unbottleknecked. If you really wanna /wc id spend the next couple of weeks looking for used parts on the forum and read up a little.

A Big Typoon would out-perform that system.

If you are going to go kit, you want to stick to Swiftech kits. (Maybe Thermaltake)

if you really want to go kit, i would reccomend the swifttech H220, it has a dual 120mm fan radiator instead of the small one in the 120 kit, so your system will be cooler. But i dont know youre price range but might be worth it to compare the systems http://www.jab-tech.com/Swiftech-Ape...0-pr-3198.html

that kit will serve u pretty well. But a dual 120mm rad would be better. If you have the money and the space for a dual 120 rad get the 220 if not i think ull be happy with that swiftech kit.

chipset cooling is usless even under high overclocks chipsets dont get very hott a decent passive cooler for ur chipset is more than sufficient and by adding a chipset block to ur loop it will decrease the performance.
