Alright im building a rig from ibuypower ( yes i know its a bit more exspensive but i have no intentions on ordering the parts seperate, I just need this answered no suggestions for parts please )
- i7 930 ( stock clocked at 2.8ghz)
- [crossfire] hd 5870 1gb's
- 6gb ddr3 1800mhz ram
- Gigabyte x58a-ud7 mobo
- 1000 watt corsairHX power supply
- Windows 7 proffesional
Now im just wondering ... ibuypower offers a free upgrade to liquid cooling ... but will that help? I mean ... ive heard that adequate liquid cooling costs around 300$ so im kinda skeptical about getting this ... should i pay an extra 30 and get an air cooling system or would this watercooling system be acceptable?
the one they put in is probably junk, if you want good LC there is a sticky, read through it and learn then ask questions if you have any (and yeah, $300 is probably a good price for a decent LC system for teh CPU)
The hyper 212+ is a very good cooler for price/performance, but if you want something better, the Mugen 2 is the way to go. Currently I'm waiting my Hyper 212+ that comes from USA (I'm from Colombia) and like you, few weeks ago I was thinking in buy a H50, and after some articles and advices (from here), I saw that the H50 and Hyper 212+ have similar performance.
The V8 is good too, but IMO is a very big cooler and the price is high if you compare this with the Hyper 212+ or the Mugen.
