If your going to be overclocking, then get water cooling if you can afford it.

But for less extreme overclocking, just a good air cooling system will work. Just throw in more case fans and upgrade your standard cpu heatsink for a more powerful one.

Also some of the downsides of overclocking are that it generates a lot of heat that can damage components if not cooled properly. Also some people say that overclocking can reduce the lifespan of some core parts.

liquid nitrogen all the way . thats what the p4 @ 7.38GHz is runnign off of.

u can get mini AC's but they are noisy and arent that good. the only things u need to really worry about when cooling r the gpu and cpu. and watercooling is the best.

A small fan blowing on it will keep it cool enough
