I will a buy a FX-8350, and I plan to overclock it to 4.5GHz at least. I'm planning to get one of these water coolers: Antec Kuhler H2O 620 or CoolerMaster Seidon 120M (the Cooler Master page), previously I planned to buy this air cooler Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO or Noctua NH-U9B SE2, also the case is Cooler Master K380 USB 3.0 supports water cooling.

What do you recommend me to get? One of these 2 water coolers that are the cheapest ones compared to other water coolers, I don't have money to buy more expensives, or the other good air coolers but for a cheaper price I heard that cooler master 212 Evo is good and Noctua were always goog and quiet noise, here is the list of all air coolers available link, in case there is a better option for price under 50€.

air cooler is fine. the closed looped water coolers dont do that much better than air. Also Air coolers are much cheaper

Yes, an air cooler would be sufficient, but since you're going with a high overclock, and using a 8 core CPU, you would be much better of with an water cooler.

So this Antec Kuhler or Cooler Master Seidon will be fine no? and they're better than Noctua NH-U9B SE2 too? Because I saw a lot of times some Noctua coolers beating water coolers.

Well air coolers beat water coolers because water coolers require like an warm up time before they're fully functional.

Maybe this will help:

I think I will just buy a "Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO" now, since I wanted a 700€ PC and adding a 2Tb HDD it became 730€, so if I add an expensive water cooling it will be even more and I need money to a monitor too, I won't overclock it now but in future I will get a "Corsair H60" or a "Noctua NH-D14" to do it, since my brother will buy a PC too after me, I will just gift him the "Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO".

But talking about water cooling or air coolings, I really saw that some big air coolers are performing better than a lot of water coolers, the "Noctua NH-D14" surely yes.
