Hi all i want to buy fx-8150 in a few months and i want to get informed about something. I am buying this http://www.alza.sk/amd-fx-8150-s-vodnim-chlazenim-d2965... . Its the procesor packed with the liquid cooling. And to the point. I will get a case coolermaster haf x 942 so i wanted to know if that liquid cooling kit is worth buying and if i need to buy some liquid or there is liquid inside it and is it hard to install? And will it work with my Asrock 970DE3/U3S3 motherboard? Thank you all for replying in advance.

What are you going to be using the computer for, if I may ask?

You must be planning to seriously overclock that processor in order for liquid cooling to be worth the effort.

I am planning to use the computer for extreme gaming and long gaming a stream it at the same time and i think i will overclock it a bit so i can get better performance and i need it nice and cool. And do i need to buy some liquid into this cooler or is it an endless loop? Please explain more. Thanks

That watercooler is fully self-contained and needs no extra liquid added.
It comes fully assembled and loaded with liquid coolant.
Just install and run. No need to add liquid during it's full life cycle.

That would be your choice. Either way would be fine.
The AMD watercooler is similar to the Antec Kuhler 920 and Corsair Hydro H80.

You can buy the full kit - FX-8150 CPU & AMD branded cooler.
Or just buy the CPU alone and choose either the Kuhler 920 or Corsair Hydro H80.

Depending on your case you might want to look at the Corsair Hydro H100.

They all cool very well.
Choose the one you like. Or which ever option is least expensive.

If you want the best prepackaged closed loop solution Corsair H100 is the best one

H100 installs differently from the H80 - and it costs more.
H80 is a good option.

You would be a lot better off getting a 2500k or 3570k and OCing that as it will give you better performance. 8 cores currently is next to useless for gaming. And for streaming a game that is going to be primarily based off you internet.
