Hey,

As an add on to what heny is saying, the main contributers that make a system heat up are: airflow,cpu clock(the higher the hotter),and the gpu, amongst other things.

So I guess my question is now is, Alot of small fans? or a few but big fans? And now that I think about it, is water cooling really worth it...I hear it leaks alot and is sometimes just as cool as fans..

Bigger fans are quieter but generally spin at lesser rpm for the same cfm. low end water cooling is no better and sometimes worse than mid to high end air cooling plus has maintenance concerns. Get a good case with a decent heat sink and you'll be ok. It will also depend on what you are doing. Are you going to heavily OC a Bloomfield? Then you better go high end. Are you going with Sandybridge with a mild or no OC? Then go stock or budget aftermarket. OC'ing a 2500K or 2600K? Then go mid range and you'll be fine as long as your OC is reasonable.
