Nick, take off the right hand side of your case (as you look at the PC) and see if there's a cutout showing the back mounting plate of the processor. You should see the ends of four screws (see photo below), if you can then replacing the cooler will be easy.

This is your case. You have one so you should be fine.

You'll need to decide whether you want an air cooler or water cooler. You can get a decentish air cooler for just north of twenty quid, but a good one will be around 60 or so.

Just been reading your thread, the water cooler looks great, maybe a little above my pc skills atm
If you can point to a good quality air cooler mate, price is not an issue really, i suppose the best if will make a big difference.

The H80i is pretty easy to fit Nick, it's just a bit fiddly holding a fan and radiator at the same time. If you do want to go that way I'll talk you through it no problem. If not, I'd recommend this air cooler below, but make sure it ill fit first, it's huge. Either will help your CPU last much, much longer.
