The original cooler I had did not fit in the new case I bought (a Cooler Master Hyper T2) and I needed to buy a new one, so I kinda did just go overboard and bought the CLC for aesthetics and upgradeability.
ok makes sense
Lol. Yeah. I even got a bit of flak for it from the only PC building friend I had as he has been building for a while and doesn't even overclock. I don't overclock now but hope to do so eventually so I just have it.
