    First of all, you do not need liquid cooling unless you are overclocking the system. Since you do not list a "K" type processor, I assume you are running at stock speed. I would really go with air cooling.
    If your temps are higher with the liquid cooler, you did not install it correctly. Did you pull the motherboard to install the cooler?
    This makes me wonder; did you reuse the old paste with the new water cooler or what?
    Did you clean off the old paste from the processor and apply new compound?

    Did you remove the plastic sticker covering the thermal paste before you mounted the cooler?
