Default i7 cooling solutions? please help me :confused:

Here is the parts of which i am going to purchase.

Case - HAF Coolermaster RC-932 black - £105

Overclockers 920 i7 2.8ghz @ 4.ghz Bundle (i7 Processor, Fan, RAM and Motherboard) - £620

Graphics - ATI XFX 5850 1GB DDR5 HDMI - £250

Fan Control - AeroCool Touch 2000 - £40

HDD - Seagate ST31000528AS 1TB SATA II 7200rpm - £53

Disk Drive - LG CH08LS10 BD-ROM (Blu-Ray) & DVD±RW £50

corsair hx-750w (modular) psu About £120

I hope everything looks okay so far.

As i get the option to upgrade the cpu's cooling device, i am unsure whether to buy the corsairs h50-1 water cooling kit, or a cooler masters v10 extreme thingy.

Which one would be recommended with this build?

Also, if there are any better water cooling kits or custom sets, what would be recommended for this system and how much would i be looking at.

Thankyou, Joesf.

The Cooler Master V10 is a huge waste of money. I've tried one and I even tried using different watt sized Peltiers with it. The Noctua NH-D14 , Thermalright TRUE or the Prolimatech Megahalems should be your top choices in air cooling.

Unless you can find the Corsair H50 for $50 or cheaper you should stick to air-cooling as all of the heatsinks I listed above will cool your cpu just as well.

If your interested in a "Good" Custom Water-Cooling Loop you should expect to pay $200-$300 but it will give you your best performance.
