I see you have a fine build but in my opinion it does not require liquid cooling at all. The hyper 212 is perfectly fine for normal PC configuration & even up to a decent overclock up to 4.5-4.6GHz.

If you want more than that, then you must weigh whether the few hundred Mhz ( say up to 5GHz ) would be worth the money & effort in putting a liquid cooling system to your build.

Other enthusiast will be in better position to give you advice because I myself gets rattled just thinking about liquid cooling... :)

Hello eggi;

Liquid cooling is never a requirement.
And some of the premium air coolers even out perform some of the closed loop water cooler kits.

Your i5-2500K, ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3, GTX 560 Ti and CM Hyper 212+ is a great combo for a mid-range budget overclocked gaming system.

I see its a 2500k rig, as mentioned no necessity for water, but you always have the option if you wanted to later on ofc :)

+1. I actually have to click everything to see what are the components. If it happened last week when my internet was low I would not have the patience to check it out & reply.
