Hello folks, I'm currently in the process of upgrading my PC and one part has got me a bit stuck, so i need help.
I'm looking for a simple and easy to use water cooler for the "AMD FX-9590 8 Core Black Edition Processor"
CASE: Antec Nine Hundred Two
GPU: evga gtx 760 SC 2gb
I'll be going duel SLI
Current CPU: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T
Motherboard: ASUSTeK M5A78L-M LX
Motherboard i'm buying: ASUS Sabertooth 990FX Motherboard R2.0

Are there any water coolers that would fit in my case, or am i better off buying a new case? If so please feel free to suggest one.

Any and all help would be appreciated!

Is there any particular reason you want an AIO cooler so much? Like what are you hoping to gain? Usually people get AIO coolers because they fit in smaller cases, not get a new case to fit the water cooler.

1. I'm not sure why you listed the parts you have, if the cooler is supposed to go on parts you plan on buying.
2. There is no CPU on the market that requires a AIO water cooler.
3. Perhaps if you told us what it is exactly you want to do, we could suggest the best cooler for your needs?
4. If you want to ignore everything I just said and get one anyway, what is your budget so I can suggest one?

I'm not sure that your case supports 240mm rads so get a 120mm cooler like the next,

There are differences in performance so look at reviews a for that and keep an eye on what you want to spend on it too.
For on a budget would i choose the h60 (2013 edition!) or for the best the h80i or the cooler master 120XL.

Like they want to tell you is that often are air coolers as good or better than aio liquid cooler sets like the h60 here.Keep an eye on that when you look at reviews.

According to this website (where i intend to buy the cpu) http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_i... It "Comes with no fan - requires CPU liquid cooler." my budget is no more than $150.

I'm planning on going SLI 760s with the ASUS Sabertooth 990FX Motherboard.

Why are you going for that cpu?
Are there specific things you do that it's better at?

If it's for gaming could you better choose the 4770K.You could cool this with a good air cooler and would draw less power.It's as expensive there.

Don't get me wrong,i'm not just for intel,but if you really want an amd go for the fx 8350 and overclock it yourself.

It requires a cooler yes. It does not have to be water. The CPU itself will not know what cooler you put on it, just that the cooler is sufficient to cool it.
Incidentally, I highly recommend not getting that CPU; you can get more performance for less from intel. And intel chips don't put out 220 watts of heat.
