Corsair Hydro Series H70 High-Performance CPU Cooler

I'd go for a better air cooler rather then blow your money on a water cooling kit, they are a waste of money imo, also small fan = loud, high maintenance for how little it does.

There are comparable if not better air cooling solutions. i have one: Noctua D14, mounts many different sockets. If it doesnt mount yours inspect it and find a cooler that follows similar physics principles.

Also, powe supply ...go for a bit more then 650W, that the absolute lowest i'd ever go, and thats if i wasnt planning on upgrading my rig.

Edit: water cooling 'kit' < proper air cooler < proper/custom water cooling system

Edit: Good air cooler is the same price as a water cooling kit

the h70 is a sealed unit, no maintenance necessary

if you can get the d14 or silver arrow for less, and you have the room on your board and case, get those
if not get the h70
