Hi all

I am looking at buying a water cooler for my rig but not sure if i need to.
My FX-6100 CPU temp is running around 42c with the stock cooler when i'm encoding video which i think is hot but i dont know
Can someone tell me please if this is ok or not and recommend a water cooler around the £60-80 mark for a Asrock extreme 3 970 MOBO

42 degrees is quite normal. Even you don't need other air cooler. You should consider water cooling loops when temps will getting very high.
