I am 15 and building my own computer. I know whats best for most of the hardware but am unsure about what coolers I should get for overclocking the Intel core i7 3770k processor that I will be buying. I will be hoping to get 4.2ghz or above if at all possible. Any help with what water cooler i can get considering the fact that my case will not be able to fit coolers that have fans and radiators bigger than 120mm. If i need to pay more than my budget for it then i will but i was aiming to keep the cost lower than £100.
Thanks

Cooler master hyper 212 evo. It has 120 mm fans, fits in most cases, and cools very well. Besides it's really cheap but is high quality.

Well you can get to 4.5 GHz with the hyper 212 evo, but if you want water cooling, so be it.

Your best options are the corsair hydro h50 and the cooler master seidon 120m. I would go for the corsair based on preference.

Depends on the system, but I'm in the mid to high 50s most of the time, idles at low to mid 30s. Haven't done prime95.
