I would like a new computer that would be specified for gaming. The thing is I'm not building it, I'm proving the parts to the supplier and they will build it for me. I want an over-clocked PC, and I have chosen it from their range, but I'm having trouble finding a cooler suffice for this over-clock. I'm opting for a liquid cooling solution, and I have something in the range of the Corsair Hydro 80. I wanted to know if this would be enough to keep a stable over-clock without facing any issues.
If someone could provide better solutions or even something that would be cheaper yet adequate, it would be much appreciated.
Thanks for the help,

And if anyone wants to know the supplier, it's PC Specialist.
My PC, but I have made some tweaks:

Yup, that's not that bad for an air cooler, there's nothing wrong with 70-80 degrees but with water cooling you'll be able to take it slightly higher at slightly lower temps. Definitely not necessary, but good to do if you have the money, fun and good looking too.

I highly disagree. If you look at reviews comparing the H80i to the Noctura DH14. The Noctura keeps you chip a good amount cooler than the H80i. Comparing the Noctura to the H100i, they are actually almost dead even. I'm not biased, I JUST bought an H100i because I want the room in my case. I haven't received it yet but I'm sure the temps will be great, although I doubt I really needed a water cooler to overclock high.
