    H60: CORSAIR H60 refresh Water Cooler - Newegg.com = $60
    LQ320: ZALMAN LQ-320 Water Cooler - Newegg.com = $100
    Just newegg prices, could be cheaper elsewhere

    Cheap watercooling is only marginally better than passive cooler (like within a degree or two). What are you trying to achieve?

    Then just get a hyper 212. Absolutely no need for an all-in-one watercooler.

    is it better than the water cooler? also wouldn't aircooler produce more heat (as in pulling out more heat making the room hot)? because my stock fan i have make the room sooooo fucking hot lol, and which is better? evo or plus? also i would want something that would last me a loooonnng time and doesnt need much maintenance (would that be watercooled or aircooled?)

    It will be just as good as a water cooler. No it won't produce any more or less heat than a cheap water cooler. Get the plus, it will last longer than a water cooler and only requires dusting every 6 months or so depending on how dusty your room is.

    Plus doesn't offer much benefit over the evo. Not enough to justify double the price. I'd rather get a pro and grab a decent game of steam for the price.
