Question about liquid cooling vs stock cooling

Hey guys! I am on a girlfriend restricted budget (lol). I have a FX-8120 CPU with stock heatsink. I saw the CM MasterLiquid lite 120 on sale for 35$ (CAD). Therefore, I was wondering if I would see a good difference in my cpu temp, that regularly goes over 60-80 celsius when gaming. I really only play Overwatch. MB is a Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2 and gpu is zotac geforce gtx 1060 6gb amp!. My case is a Thermaltake Commander G42 that has decent airflow.

  1. Yep! Some good thermal paste paired with the new cooler will definitely be an improvement.

    Another thing you can do is upgrade the thermal paste. This is the best stuff available: http://www.thermal-grizzly.com/en/products/16-kryonaut-en

    I use it on all my desktops(including video cards) and laptops.
  3. I finally decided to purchase the Hyper 212 Evo because it was on sale. Is it good?
  4. I had a 212 before on an older 1155 system. It worked just fine.
