I have been working at overclocking my system extremely slowly over the last month and its starting to get to the point my heat-sync has trouble keeping up under a stress test. I have the Fenrir by Titan which I was told was a great heat-sync. I'm wondering if a liquid cooling heat-sync like:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16835227006

is better then what I got. if not then my over clocking comes to a stop here since I don't like my CPU getting up to 80C under load and it currently has a max spike of 75C.

in case it helps here is my build:
CPU = Intel i7 950
CPU Heat-Sync = Fenrir Titan
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3
Power Supply = Corsair TX750W
Graphics Card = ATI HD 5870
Case = CM Storm Scout

My overclock runs the CPU at 4.0 GHz

CPU = Intel i7 950
Motherboard = Asus P6X58D
RAM = Corsair XMS3 DDR3 6X 2GB
Power Supply = Corsair AX1200W
Graphics Card = GTX 580 2-way SLI

I personally, have never used a liquid cooling system and likely never will, I dont tend to overclock, however that being said, Liquid cooling can indeed lower the temps if your major into overclocking. The negatives to overclocking, is that they can sometimes leak and cause other problems. I have a friend who has this on his Phenom x6 CPU, and overclocked to 4 ghz it keeps it in the area of -45 C. Now that, is cold, however, the price tag on it is only for the enthusiast, the one you have should help you drop your temps, but shop around. My recomendation with liquid cooling is, dont go cheap-Granted you dont need to dump 400 bucks on a liquid cooling solution, but if its under 50-60 I personally, would not even look at it.

I use that as well all the time, very effective, however I tend not to overclock lol. The only thing OCed in my system is my video card, and thats only because it was factory overclocked.

Check out the Corsair H50. It has a smaller radiator that the H50 but a larger pump. With either I would use 2 fans. Push/Pull.
