im considering water cooling my amd phenom 2 955 socket am2+
i just wish to know the relevent kit that i would need i have seen all in one kits and also seperate pumps and rads and blocks
im not sure what to get but i need to cool my cpu as even stock speed with a artic cooler its a big one with copper pipes and everything im still reporting temps of 45c idle and 58c-64c during gaming and im replacing cpu thermal paste every two weeks as it keeps drying up and then temps go sky high too 55c idle and 65c-75c while gaming
how do i paste photo i have a arctic cooling freezer pro 7 rev .2
No need, your description is sufficient.
The cooler has a 92mm fan which tends to be noisy and inefficient.
At least compared to a $30 cm hyper 212.
But, I don't think you need to change it out.
Your motherbooard is a ATX size and needs a mid-tower type case.
The Antec cases I referenced will do the job.
For good cooling two 120mm intake fans or the equivalent in output should be plenty for even a strong single graphics card.
