Basic answer that you'd find on ANY post in this section:

Best air coolers atm:
-Scythe Ninja + 120mm fan
-Thermalright SI-120 + 120mm fan
-Thermaltake Big Typhoon

Cheap water cooling:
-Thermaltake Bigwater SE or never

Any of those should drop your temps a fair deal.

Good water cooling, yes. And you do need fans on the radiator, they are often 120mm or 2x120mm. The bigwater is very good for it's price (about $100, i think..), but the performance is on par with the air coolers i mentioned..

Zalman 9500CU LED is a fine cooler too.

44 for the chipset? That's rather warm. What's your ambiant temp? If you can cool the room a bit, that will help. I can drop my comp down as many as 8 C by simply droping the room temp by 2-3 C.
