If you had an FX-8350 and your goal was to hit 5GHz or more, would you choose a water cooling "kit", like the Antec kuhler 620 for example, or extreme air cooling, like the Noctua NH-D14 or even a Hyper 212 Evo?

I have the Kuhler 620 and I will tell you it is not worth it, go high end air cooling such as the DH-14. In addition, I myself do not know the Overclocking capabilities of the FX-8350 but personally I think 5ghz is pretty high and you need a custom water cooling kit. Then again I could be wrong because like I said I do not own the CPU and therefore cannot give you 100% accurate statements.

5 GHZ on FX-8350 ?

Better spend some money on a water chiller Hailea HC-500 or HC-1000...

i've seen a couple of people do it with pre-made water cooling kits, and i just wondered if it's really necessary and if most people go that route. thanks!

I have the FX-8350 and its got the corsair H80i water cooler on it, its over clocked to 4.6 but have had it to 5.1 with no problems, the motherboard i am using is Asus Crosshair V Formula 990FX, with corsair dominator platinum 1866mhz dd3 memory. and it's quieter than the my last setup, as its hard to hear it running. :bounce:
