Hello

As I am deciding between the FX8350 and the i7 4790k or the i7 5820K, which type of cooling should I go for? Very good air cooler or a liquid cooler such as the H90 or H100i or one of the Coolermaster liquid coolers?

ok

So you don't think the H90 or the Coolermaster Seidon series is good?

That case will work fine with any kind of cooling. I agree with i7Baby for the most part. A side note however make sure your motherboard has enough room to allow for a large air cooler if that's the route you go, especially if you have large RAM modules.

They are OK. The H100i is better.

If you have that kind of room for an air cooler, the thermalright true spirit 140 power is a pretty good alternative. Usually around $50-55 and keeps pace (sometimes performs better) than the nh-d14. It's 170mm tall though so can be limited what cases it will fit into.

Here are the choice of coolers I have where I live:

Liquid:
H100I
H60
Cooler Master Seidon 120V
Zalman Reserator 3 Max
Cooler Master Seidon 120M
Scythe Apsalus III
Aircoolers:
Scythe IORI Scior-1000
Scythe Kotetsu Scktt-1000
Enermax ETS-T40 Black Twister or White Cluster
Cooler Master Hyper 103
Scythe Ashura
Scythe Kabuto
Scythe Katana 4
Scythe Grand Kama Gross 2

Which one of those would be good?

If your choices are limited to those, the h100i will probably be your best bet and serve you well regardless of which cpu you get. The kotetsu is a decent cooler, a bit better than the 212 evo from cooler master but at half the cost (or less) of the h100i, it won't have as much cooling capacity either.
