I am planning on overclocking an i5 750 to a minimum of 4 GHz. This is going to be my first build so i don't want to spend the extra money going watercooling because if i mess up then a lot can go wrong. I've been doing a good bit of research and so far I have got it down to about 3 fans+heatsinks. I am going to be using an antec 1200 (not sure if this case is overkill size wise but I think it has the room for if I upgrade to watercooling later on).

Here are the three air cooling systems i am thinking about:

Noctua NH-D14 120mm & 140mm SSO CPU Cooler

Prolimatech Supermega Intel Socket 1156, 1366 and 775, 6 Dual Heatpipes, Twin Tower CPU Cooler
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Prolimatech Megahalems Rev.B CPU Cooler
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

The last two do not have fans...I really am not sure what fans to get, but I want go more for efficiency and powerful cooling than a ridiculous silent system. As long as its not overly loud I wont mind.

Thank you very much for any suggestions and comments!

Between the three, stick with the noctua............. its one of the best if not the best............. and is silent........... and comes with good fans............. and about the same price of the other two (with extra fans).............
