I've always thought liquid is better, because there's not a lot of room for airflow in say, a Prodigy. Then I talked to some people and they suggested air, because of the close proximity of the cpu cooler to the exhaust fan, blowing it right out of the case. If I go liquid I'd want something relatively inexpensive, but also something that will allow my 3770k to run at 4.2-4.5. I'm running it @ 4.2 right now with a 212 Evo, and that works well. My current build is in a Zalman Z11 and I want to transfer to an ITX case. (Yes, I'll have to replace a few things, but I'm prepared.) Also, if you don't mind, answer me this: Corsair 250D, EVGA Hadron, or BitFenix Prodigy?
