Water cooling or Air cooling, and what cooler?

Postby ra1212 » Thu Jul 19, 2012 9:29 am

Hi Folks,

I need some help finding out if i should get a water cooler or an air cooler. I'm looking for a cooler that should be able to keep my I5 3570k CPU cool while overclocked to 4,6Ghz. I have look through a lot of Coolers on the internet, and by now the one i liked the most is Corsair h50-h60-h80 and the Antec Kuhler H2O 620, but i wanna know what you folks think, because i don't know about the noise on them above, i have heard the Corsair one are a bit noisy but i have heard 2 differant things about the Antec Kuhler H2O 620, one place say it's quiet and one place says it's noisy. So if there is any of you guys that have some of these coolers plz tell me what you think about them, or if you got(or just know) some other cooler that you think would be able to cool my CPU. Then it would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

My budget is MAX 100$ and i'm use'ing a NZXT Phantom 410 Midi Tower Case, only going with one Grapic card so there should be space that way, and i only need 2 of my RAM slots atm.
