    Hi folks,

    I recently built my first PC and am now in the process of improving 1 or 2 bits.
    So far, all I got is a new graphics card, next on the list is a new cpu cooler so I can overclock.
    I have never used liquid cooling before but I like the idea of no (or barely audible) noise.
    I've got about £45 to spend on a cooler, could maybe stretch a bit more for the right one.
    I have found 1 liquid and 1 air cooler that I could go with but I would like some advice before buying either of them.

    The liquid cooler is - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Antec-Kuhle...YE4Q/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1331985000&sr=8-1

    And the Air cooler is - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Akasa-AK-CC...1_1?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1331985222&sr=1-1

    But I am open to suggestions for other coolers. My PC spec is filled in so take a look, and bear in mind the upgrades I've got planned.
    Will any of these be good enough for my pc when all upgrades have been applied ?

    You mentioned in another thread that you plan to over-clock it to 4.5 GHz, so I think you need water cooling for that.

    Do you think the liquid cooler I picked will do the job ok if I overclock to 4.5Ghz ?
