I tell you what is supposed to be a great cooler. It's not released in the UK until the 22nd of this month and I am hoping to get one. It may already be out where you are Kent. Better check if it will fit your case first.

The NZXT Kraken X61

Kraken? X61 - NZXT

Check out the swiftech h220x or see Linus tech tips on YouTube for pretty good cooling reviews. If you want to max out, build your own loop, only if you are confident. I am not urging you to try it.

I'll also recommend the two coolers mentioned above........if you have to use 240mm units(120mm x2) try out the Swiftech H220x. If you can use 240mm or 280mm(140mm x2) then get the NZXT Kraken X61

Swiftech H220-X (reviewed) , nice one with latest Apogee XL waterblock but you'll have to care of the integrated Reservoir measure.

Idk if you are gaming on this rig looking at your GPU, but ideally, games like fewer faster cores rather than more slower cores. From tests, that 8 core can really only oc to 4-4.2. It produces a LOT of heat. So having a lower clocked cpu will give u less perform a than the 6 core in which u can turn off HT and clock it MUCH higher than the 8 core.

Whilst some of what you say is true Noober, obviously newer games are being made to make use of additional cores.

Regarding the HT off and clocking higher, that is only necessary for extreme overclocking just to squeeze a few more MHz when you reach a complete wall. My 6 core runs just fine at 4.6GHz at 1.265V with HT on. I don't think many people run much higher speeds than that for gaming.

i mentioned HT off because it reduces heat a little more allowing for better OC. i honestly don't think games will support more than 4 cores any time soon giving that it took them forever to just switch to 4 core support.
