I wanted to know what is the cheapest water cooler for the 8350 which would keep the temps below 80C and still pass all the stress tests and benchmarks @4.5 ghz overclock.

Thanks in advance.

Why not just get a high end air cooler for the price of an entry water cooler. What is your budget anyways? I would suggest the Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme, Phanteks PH-TC14PE, Noctua NH-D14, and the Noctua NH-U14S. A good water cooler would be the H80i from Corsair.

Do you already have that cpu? If not, i suggest the black edition, comes with a AIO cooler, very good one i might add.

Codename: HighFlyer, specs:  CPU: i5 2500k cooled by a H70ish   Mobo: MSI MPower Z77   GPU: Gigabyte GTX 660 OC 1150 MHZ core, 3150 memory   RAM: Corsair Vengeance 12G @2133mhz   SSD: Intel 330 60GB / HDD Seagate Barracuda 1TB   Power supply: Corsair RM650 80+ Gold   Case Corsair Carbide 500R   5.4 ghz achieved on the good old 2500k, may it rest in peace. Current daily OC is 4.9 @1.41 v

You can get the FX 8350 to 4.8Ghz on a Noctua NH-D14 or an NZXT Havik 140, no need to watercool , 8 core FX CPUs overclock very easily.

I got my FX 8320 to 4.4Ghz Turbo on the stock cooler, max temp is 52c (maximum safe temp for the FX 8 core CPUs is 62c), the stock cooler does get obnoxiously loud though because of its tiny fan.

In air coolers, in my country I have -hyper 212x, hyper 412, deepcool ice warrior cooler, deepcool neptwin and gamer storm.
In water coolers- all corsair coolers (h80i and h100i are quite expensive and exceeds my budget) and cooler masters seidon (which is a little bit cheap).
I do not have the CPU, I'm doing a custom built so please help.

Max safe is 62 that is your goal but it all matters on airflow of case also your chip
But I would say s h80i push/ pull or h100i any thing around that will be good to get u to 4.5
So look at cooler master nzxt corsair they all make them so look to cost about 80 - 140

The cheapest water cooler is not really worth getting.

Watch those temps! An intel cpu would be ok with those but your 8350 would be dead if it reached those temps.


I would not go for a water cooler any lower than the h100. Below that a good air cooler is better

I have a 2nd gaming system, specs as follow:

AMD FX8350 @4.5ghz

Asus Crosshair V Formula

4x 4GB RipJawsX 2133mhz

2x GTX670 SLi

Corsair HX1050


Now, for cooling, I'd gotten a Hyper 412Slim, but I took out the crap stock fans and replaced them with a single Corsair SP Performance fan. With my room ambient temp set at 25C, my FX8350 #4.5ghz idles at 32C.....and I don't see it past 65C under load. I don't run those stability test programs so I can't say how good the temps on my is, but I play games, rip MP3 and movies with this rig and I'd not had any hardware related issue.

Rig 1: Intel i7 3960X | Asus R4E | 16GB Corsair Dom Plat 2133mhz | 2x Sapphire R9 290X (H2O) | SB ZX + Logitech Z-5500 | Caselabs M8 | Seasonic X-1250 | KBParadise V60 Mini MX Green + Logitech G502 Proteus Core | 64bit Win8.1 Pro

Rig 2:  AM3+ FX8350 | Asus CVF | 16GB G RipJawsX 2133mhz | 2x GTX670 | Asus RoG Xonar Phoebus Solo + Klipsch PM2.1 | Corsair 650D | Enermax Maxrevo 1500W | Leopold FC660C + Roccat Kone XTD | 64bit Win7 Pro
