  1. Get ready to spend $300 for a decent loop. It is more for a hobey than for actual performance. With a good air cooler you will get maybe 10-15c warmer than a watercooler.
  2. plan on tinkering with over clocking , in your opinion is water cooling worth it
  3. If your spending a lot of money on your system, then yes...Water cooling is worth it.

    You can still overclock very far on air though.

    What are your system specs?
