A few questions on Installing liquid cooling to my computer.

So I now have the money to buy myself liquid cooling for my computer. However, I have a few questions about installing it. My first question is, Do I have to remove the old thermal paste? The second one is, Does anyone have any recommended cooling kits? I'm thinking about using this cooling kit.

The answer to your first question is yes, always remove the old paste and apply new. That is a decent cooler, the 920 is probably better, the Corsair H80 and H100 should get some consideration too.

This is a great cleaning kit, add a supply of clean Q-Tips and you are ready to clean all surfaces. You may also want to consider removing the pre-installed thermal compound if so applied and install a premium thermal paste.
