I am lookig for a good liquid cooler for my FX-8150 clocked to 4.0ghz. I have a GIGABYTE 990FXA-UD7 MoBo, should i go for the single fan radiator or double fan radiator? My budget is $100. My PSU is an OCZ Fatal1ty 1000 watt just in case.

Just to 4 ghz, a 212 evo should be enough for $30-depends on your CPU.
For 70 a phanteks or Noctua.
For 100 a H100i
(Or x60 if it's on sale and your case supports it)

Thanks Jake! I have a few more questions, will the H100i be compatible with am3+? An if so, how would i mount it to the haf 912? Outside?

Ah I see, the only way to make the h100i fit is by modding your case and adding fan slots. If you have the tools and don't mind modding your case, I'd say go for it. If you don't have the tools, I say get the Phanteks or Noctua-if you decide to go buy the toolds, you might as well buy a custom loop and drill to pipe routes and have an external exclosure than spending ~70 on just drills bits and harbors.
