I also have a FX-8350 and I use a Deepcool Gamma 400 air cooler. I also have six 120mm fans in my case that I control using a fan controller.I don't OC but I have no problem with temps during heavy gaming. I also live in the Free State where it is pretty hot. Best of all,the cooler only cost me R272 without shipping.

I highly doubt you'll be able to get 4,7-4,8 Ghz with reasonable temps with just single 120mm AIO cooler. I would save some money for 240mm cooler or go for air cooling. Everything is down to volts you run through your cpu tho.

As Zilincan said, a big air cooler will do the job just as good give or take, but I if had to pick between both... well I would get best performance/dollar one :)

the problem with huge air coolers is that they are huge obviously, heavy and can cover ram slots. For example I prefer huge air coolers as well, but in my case, my case is really small, so if I add a big air cooler it will block all the access to my cables and ram, so a water cooler to the back or side would be much better.

Huge air cooler is better than custom water cooler, but hey, you can still find good air cooler that is not blocking any ram
Water coolers are just overpriced crap, and they lifespan is short, in 3 warranty years or 4 they will fail but air cooler can work decade until it is not supported by socket and even after that you will probably be able to mount it somehow
Quality air cooler is investment for years and years ahead, changing fans is only matter of few moneyz

Custom water cooling? You don't have to use custom water cooling. All in one kits are cheaper than ever, never have to replace the water, and is quieter. Water will always beat air in terms of cooling. My water cooler is guaranteed to work for 50,000 hours, or 5.7 years of continuous use! That sounds like a great deal to me! Warranty is 5 years.

I meant All in one kits not custom sorry for my mistake
Custom water coolers are good


...and quiter? What closed loop water cooler is quiter than air cooler? Air have no pump noise, you just slap 1000rpm fans on it and it will be all under 25dB
Good air cooler is always cheaper in performance similar closed loop water cooler

If you get a proper unit then you don't have noticable pump noise. I'd go for AIO cooler just for what kind of performance you get and also looks alot better than huge air cooler such as nh-d14. But that's just down to owners preference.

now compare price of nh-d14 (70-75 euro) and quality water cooler (120 euro)
I rest my case

I think both can be enough, but on h100i the cpu will be a lot cooler. but personally i'll take air cooling because it is better for the price and easier to fix, you can take noctua d15/CM V8/10 which are strong. also look at CM Nepton 280

look http://www.coolermaster.com/cooling/cpu-liquid-cooler/nepton-280l/ here how close noctua d14 to h100i, but costs much less, so d15 will be almost same as 100i but almost half the price and how much better the nepton is then h100i
