Hi people i need a decent cooling to my 2500k i wanna overclock, and this is my system Specs=

GPU=sapphire 6950 2gb OC edition
MOBO= Msi p67a C45 b3
CPU= i5 2500k in stock
CASE= Thermaltake Commander MS-I
PSU= Thermaltake 600w

FANS=cpu and gpu haves the stock fans , and my case haves a thermaltake Thunderblade 120mm - Blue LED Fan
and the stock case fan at 1000 rpm

in the last days my MOBO is hot like hell. the reads of temp 2(in Speedfan 4.46) show a temp of 57° to 65° C idle, and full load 127°c.
What is the best cooling solution for my system cause i am worry i can't play nothing.

i think abaout this options=

I) buy 3 cooler master siclke fans (with this i dont OC my cpu)

II) buy a h80 or h100

III)or buy the thermaltake 760 water cooling,


I don't now what is the best choice for the life of my system, please help me with this dilemma,
i f i buy the 760 water coolin where i can find the water blokcs for my GPU and MOBO???

the links of MOBO, GPU and my CASE=

127* Celcius? The The i5-2500K has a Tjmax (maximum junction temperature before damage) of approximately 90-100 degrees C, and you're way over that. What are you using to monitor the temps?

The thermaltake 760(Big Water) is the worst water cooling kit you could buy! Stay away from it like the plague. If you are not comfortable installing a full water cooling kit the H100 should do ok. Personally I would go for one of the XSPC kits as they contain everything you need minus the coolant and are really good kits. I am using a XSPC 750 RS240 on my FX-8120 and it works very good.

The H100 will serve your purpose.
But like rds1220 pointed out, 127 degrees Celsius is far above the maximum temp for your CPU. Your system will automatically shutdown at that point, or burn out.
Speedfan tells me my CPU is at 7 degrees Celsius, which I know is a blatant lie. The ambient temperature in my house is about 23 degrees.
Use CoreTemp, you'll get much more accurate values.
