It's actually lucid hydra, not MSI hydra. I was incorrect when I called it that.

madanchi, I can help you with water cooling if you want. I see your sig.

Terrible. I can help you with a real liquid cooling system. If not, get a high end air heatsink, and it will beat that thing.

I recommend prolimatec megahalems, tuniq tower extreme, and TRUE120.

they are all about $60 in the US, but idk about the UK.

Put a panaflo 120mm fan on any of them and you are good to go.

If you want a real LCS, here is our guide.

I just added a bunch of loop recommendations, so it is pretty up to date.

Prolimatec Megahalems and Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme.

I've got a lapped TRU120E and it does ok. Once you've had one you'll want water cooling. So i'm gonna go and consult Footheads guide...

yay. It's still a work in progress, but I have some really good loops laid out there.

Should get your i7 to awesome temps. You definitely want the apogee XT or the EK supreme HF to save a couple bucks. There is not much of a difference in temps.
