hi when i do my next build im looking to overclock my i7 930 past the 4.2ghz mark. i am considering watercooling and wondered if a single 120mm rad (tfc rad + koolance cpu 360) would be sufficient to cool it. thanks.

Hi newcomer and welcome to the Tom's hardware forum.

I would go with 2 fans for sure.

If you're looking to just hit 4.2, I'd stick w/ air .... it's certainly doable.

If you're looking 4.5 ...well than I'm thinking ya gotta go water.
