Yeah, you want to avoid closed-loop water coolers; they are usually outperformed for cheaper by more reliable air coolers.

Personally I would go with air, not a closed loop cooler. In a large case like yours Im not sure why you would be considering a closed loop cooler. You have many options for air coolers in the ~$70 range. Im sure many people will post their favorites this is one of mine(still needs a fan).

Quite a few people have opted for the Coolermaster Hyper 212 and have had great success in their over clock to 4.0 to 4.4 and new egg has them for around thirty dollars.

Hope that helps.

It's actually a pretty small cooler, and you can turn it. It'll fit just fine. :)

Air coolers are FAR more reliable and trustworthy than liquid coolers:

1) Air coolers have a fraction of the moving parts of liquid coolers. This means that the liquid cooler is many times more likely to fail.

2) When a fan on an air cooler fails, there's still a large metal heatsink to allow the CPU to downclock safely so that you can save your work and make sure nothing gets damaged. When a water cooler fails, there's no safety whatsoever.

3) If an air cooler fails catastrophically, plastic flies around your case - it's not going to damage, say, your graphics card, or your motherboard. When a liquid cooler fails catastrophically, you have liquid spewing over all your components. That's bad.

So when you consider that air coolers are more reliable, cheaper, and in many cases are quieter and cool better than liquid coolers, why would you want a cheap plastic children's toy to be what you trust your thousand dollar computer to?

I am glad someone convinced you not to get a closed loop cooler, great choice. The CM 212 is likely the best option for under $50. You want small size and to OC to 4.4 Ghz these two do not go hand in hand without heat related issues. The CM 212 is fairly small by tower cooler standards. You should not have ram heat sink clearance issues with it. You could post a link to your ram since Corsair makes various heights in the Vengeance line.

I have this 3 ram. Should i remove heatsink ?, or it will be k.

You will have some clearance issues. Depending on your motherboard you may get away without using the first ram slot(use slots 2-4). Also, you may be able to mount the heat sink fan a little higher up on the heat sink to give a little extra clearance you need. Third you can mount the heat sink fan so its on the opposite side of the ram so it "pulls" air through the heat sink exhausting out the back. I would go ahead and buy the cooler and work out the rest once you get it.

Watch the later part of this video, you can see how the fan just comes over the first ram slot. Your mileage may vary but you should be able to not use the first slot and get the cooler installed.

Word of advice next go around. Don't by tall ram it serves no good purpose at all. The tall heat spreaders cool every so slightly better but not enough to matter in real world use. Next build think low profile memory like below then you have no issues with clearance if you want to change coolers out.

Very low profile:

k guys installed cm hyper evo 212 perfectly, now my temp at 4.5ghz, 1.33v with prime95 are
core 0 = 72
core 1 = 79
core 2 = 77
core 3 = 74
is this temp is ok?

Toldja you could. :)  Those temps are a little high, but perfectly safe.

HOWEVER:

That voltage is way too high. You shouldn't go above 1.3v at the very max, and for a 4.5GHz overclock, you should only need about 1.2-1.25v. If your chip won't boot until 1.33v, then you've hit your voltage cliff and should back down your overclock till it will run with safe voltages.

My vol is max 1.25v at 4.5ghz. And 4.7ghz it goes to 1.33v and also my ambient temp is 35. Now m using 4ghz under 70 temp.

Ahh, alright. As long as you're running under 80c and 1.3v, you're fine. :)
