You'll have to go water. Unless you have a golden chip, which I assume you do not, your not likely to get that chip to 5ghz at all anyways. At 4.5ghz you can probably expect to need 1.4V+, which will generate heat.

Your case has pre drilled options for radiator installation, so find a all in one Water Cooling solution (like a H70, though I doubt this will let you achieve your goal) or spend a little time, and look into a loop setup you would like with the components that you feel fit your build.

Good luck!

well while owning a i7 950 i know you wount hit 5ghz.

4.4 - 4.6 is achievable but even on my triple rad WC loop it did hit around 80c on load when it had HT and 4.4ghz.. So they arent cool chips. and i could feel warm air coming out the rad as it was a household radiator
