Hi guys i'm thinking of purchasing an after market cooler. Preferably a closed loop easy to install liquid cooler. And i also have a question is there a difference between a dual radiator and a single radiator? Is there a difference to the point that you have to buy a dual radiator one over the single radiator? If so some suggestions please. I'm pretty new to liquid cooling so i need ones that are easy to install.

Something like a Corsair H60 is a nice entry level, or an H110 for a higher end one. Super easy to install, and the H60 will fit in just about any case, as long as it has a 120mm fan. An H80 is one of the best if you're limited to a 120mm, H90 if you have a 140mm slot. Basically, more radiator space means more heat dispersion, meaning a more effective cooler. The H80 will allow for good overclocking and will cool just about anything.

Hm so is the h80 good for a i5-3570k? Because I really want to overclock it to 4.2 ghz or maybe 4.5 if i can. And also The h80 or h80i?

Either will work, but the H80i is better. It will definitely cool it up to 4.5ghz, you'll reach the limitations of your chip before you hit temperature limitations.

Yes, the H80 or H80i will be good for the i5-3570k, especially if you are going to overclock it. If you are going to go with an H80 or H80i, I would definately get the H80i if they are the same price. It's newer and has Corsiar Link for better control. It works with a simple USB, so it's pretty easy. I have the H100i and think it's great. The fans were loud, so I swapped them out. My friend has the H80, though, and says that the fans aren't as much of an issue as mine were. They were like jet engines. Either way, you can always control the speeds and noise levels with the Corsair Link software.

The H80i will be great, but if you get a good deal on the H80, I would definately go with that. The H80i is better if they are the same price, but there are still some deals on the H80. The performance is the same, so you'd just lose the USB for Corsiar Link. Not that big of a deal if the price is right.

The H80i just has Corsair Link and a better copper plate, so it has more control and better cooling. The nice thing about them is you can easily attach another fan on the other side for push/pull, which makes it even more powerful.
