I've selected an i7-3770K CPU overclocked 20% and an GTX 670 2GB EVGA Overclocked

I can only select these cooling fans /brands:

Liquid CPU Cooling System [SOCKET-1155
Asetek 550LC Liquid CPU Cooling System (Intel)
Corsair Hydro Series H60 Liquid CPU Cooling System
All of them have the "ARC Dual Silent High Performance Fan Upgrade (Push-Pull Airflow)" option...

Which one of these is the best one to not fry the computer CPU/GPU.

This PC will be purchased in about 2 hours or so for someone..

a 20% oc on that is like 4.2Ghz and any closed loop water cooler cools just as good as most mid to high price air coolers, and a closed loop cooler like that those two will not work and cool the gpu

This means the GPU will fry.. :-( Hopefully it won't burn the house down while im playing Battlefield 3 on Ultra.

the gpu has its own heatsink and fan/fans and air cooling work fine. On a highend gpu playing ultra on bf3, and thats being almost any brand as with a non overclock the gpu is suppose to not "fry" under 100% load with stock cooling and unless faulty will not have any issues. and same with the cpu with a non oc'd cpu it will not fry, and in your case ibuypower has the processor coming with way better than stock cooling

if i remember the corsair will cost extra, ang not to sure but they should each perform fine, so matters of money i guess, pick the dual fans and if u want the H60
