also how hard is it to install and are there any serious leak problems. i really cant afford a couple hundred dollar mistake. i have have never installed any sort of cooler before except the stock one which i had some trouble with so is this easy to install. thanks

Fairly simple install. You'll most likely have to put a backplate on the motherboard and then install the same as any heatsink. The rad and fan can be mounted on the rear exhaust fan spot or on the top (if the case has top fan openings). Leaks wise, I have yet to see a closed liquid cooler leaker but it isn't unheard of. At the same time a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO will provide the same cooling performance for approx the same price.

i think if you want to try a watercooled systme then yes, its a good start, it will give you a good feel for things and then higher classed coolers will be something you might get down the road
