Im looking for some advice - Im about to purchase a bundle which comes pre oc's at approx 4.6gh. Motherboard is either a p77-v lx, z77-dh3 or z77x-dh3. Cooler choices are thermalltake contac 29 bp, zalman cnps9900a led or antec kuhlur h2o 620 (there are more but out of my budget).
My question is what combo should I pick for optimal cooling? As I've heard anything past 4.5gh and air cooling is a problem ,though I'd like to stick to air if I could tbh - something about water running round my system scares me a tad. I also have a coolmaster 690 II case with 3 extra fans in it (only 1 at front is intake though, could add an extra if needed)
For 350 quid the oc'd i5 3570k cpu, the motherboard & coolers I posted earlier and 8g of corsair vengeance 1600MHz ram. Im getting it here as it's 12 months interest free and I'd like the CPU oc'd - I dont trust myself
