Info. When you buy a boxed retail CPU that includes a cooling solution and you choose to install an aftermarket one, instead of the supplied stock one, You will void your warranty, so no claim if damage occurs, this is from both Intel and AMD.
The stock coolers will work at stock settings, they may get a bit noisy though.
For gaming, maxed out everything, a aftermarket air cooler is better and that's all you need.
Water cooling, if you are interested in thrashing your system to the max. won't make your games run any better through.
I would not use liquid cooling. > http://www.geekstogo...er-caught-fire/
