Default Closed loop cooling

Hey folks,

I was first going to jump over to a custom water cooling loop for both cpu and gpu. I am now getting the gtx660 ti, which doesn't produce as much heat and watercooling it wouldn't make much sense.

So... what do you guys suggest for cooling a 3570k. Antec Kuhler or a Corsaih Hydro series?
I'll definitely overclock past 4.0ghz, how far from that 4.5 or not, I'm not sure.. first time overclocking an ivy bridge, so I don't mind getting a dual fan one either.

Thanks

If you want to get over 4.5 24/7 get an H80, if not - H60.

Well that's why I was asking.. Antec Kuhler 920 vs a Corsair H80/100?
C'mon folks, some more inputs will be appreciated :)

Miggs has been around a lot longer so play nice as person opinion are generally better than website reviews. With that said I would look into a h80 or h100 of your case can permit then upgrade the fans to something better and call it a day.

Thanks ena.. much appreciated.. :) It looks like the H80 is cheaper too, as well as the handy dial for the pump speed and the fan connectors, this makes it much more worthwhile. I'd definitely looking to switch the fans, something quiet, may even try the new corsair fans..

Thanks Pabz.
