You could do that on air and save some cash. LCS's do not cool better than air alot of the time, but the LCS has a better and smaller range. For example, Your 955 might idle at 28C and settle at 60C on 100%. The LCS would help stable that number to like 30-35C Idle and 45C on 100%. Depends on the materials you grab. Pre built kits just offer stability, they typically run slightly hotter than good aftermarket air coolers.

A dual 120mm at 70CFM. You could upgrade the fans and it would perform a lot better. Know that you'd have to get PWM fans and tie them in with a splitter or break out the wire strippers and electrical tape and rig it. A CPU loop would probably keep up with it pretty well, though.

I'd stick with the Monsoon. You'll most likely see better temps. Unless you want to spend +200 on a good LCS.

Most people can only get it to 3.6-3.8 on air.
Water cooling can get it to almost 5.
