FX 8150 stock cooler replacement

Ok after 2 years of having a stock cpu cooler, I now feel like upgrading my cpu cooler(first time to do it on my own). I am wondering what's the best/efficient cpu liquid cooling product out there that is easy to install for noobs like me. I have Asus 990FX R2.0 mobo and wishes to add maybe 2 more case fans too, is it plug and spin right away? Thanks!

I would recommend a Coolmaster Nepton 240M if you want a liquid cooler, avoid the 120MM liquid coolers because they have a awful price to performance ratio and are usually murdered by air coolers. Also it would be very helpful to give us a budget and what can you have.

I have this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/gwYWLk

wanted to do some simple upgrading since I am not very techy so I plan to start with cpu cooler and add maybe 2 case fans =)

That case doesn't support 240MM liquid coolers so I would just stick to air coolers, it will save you money and give you much better bang for your buck. I would recommend the Phanteks PH-TC12DX.

Yeah Phanteks for easy fitting or BeQuiet Dark Rock 3 for better cooling but a bit of frustration

As cheap, or cheaper than the super popular CM EVO 212, and performs better.
