Liquid Cool in Corsair Spec-03?

I recently built a pc and got the Cooler Master 212 Evo cooler thinking it would keep my temps at a reasonable level when overclocking. However, once I go past 4.3GHz the temps start to creep into the 80's. I was thinking of getting a h60 or h80i, but am not sure which one to get, or if it will fit in my case. I've also read some instances where these sealed coolers leak after a few years. Is this a common problem, or a very rare instance?

if you look under tech specs

compatible coolers :

H55, H60, H75, H80i

I would recommend the H80i. I wouldn't worry that much with leaks. This are very solid and corsair has a good warranty.

You can choose Corsair Air Series SP120 Quiet Edition (2-Pack) cooler.

What about adding a second fan to the 212 evo, or replacing the stock fan with a corsair SP series or a Noctua fan?
