Depends, if you are ok with corsairs 5 year warranty. Then its fine.

If you are scared that you think "omg its gonna break/leak" and listen to naysayers then get an air cooler. 

If you like the way it cleans up your case, makes your build look sweet. And enjoy performance with no effort on your part go with it.  (also you can use your own fans like I did I went with ones that push more static pressure then the corsair orginals because I like.. "lights") 

In the end its your money. I have 3 corsair H2O coolers. An H50, 70, and H110. none have failed. And are all working fine. The H70 is the oldest going for 3 years strong now in a PC thats rarely ever turned off. (home server) 

I also have two air coolers. but to get nice performance out of those air coolers. (at least performance *I* expect) You are going to be getting one in the 800+ Gram range. (weight) And they are pretty massive. 

So its up to you. ( I would get 16gb of memory would be all I would change)

Shouldn't have any issues. I'd go with the H105 instead, and grab a couple of aftermarket fans, like These Cougars.

Personally loving my H80i...  out of the box with no changes in fans it's a top10 cooler.

 

and then it's very quiet too:

Corsair (owner) is good, especially with the cougars black_zion noted.  Prefer Swiftech (owner) with cougars...both are excellent.

 

Good airflow design w/better fans help, too.

H2O cooling introduces an unnecessary water leak liability that is real and can damaged expensive PC hardware. The closed loop coolers can, do and have leaked so it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when. If you're happy with a water leak liability then go for a CLC other wise there are numerous quality HSFs that will provide excellent cooling and never leak water to damage your PC.

The top five AMD HSFs at the link below can all provide excellent cooling for a FX-9590. Scroll down to the AMD section because CPU coolers perform differently on AMD vs. Intel CPUs based on the heat spreader size. Most of the CLC fanbois are oblivious to this fact.

http://www.frostytech.com/top5heatsinks.cfm

The Corsair forums give a good reality check to those who are in denial about the high failure rates on Corsair CLCs and the PC damage that can occur. The H2O fanbois ignore reality and pretend leaks don't happen but they do. When they can't refute the low cooling performance of the CLCs and the water leak liability, then they attack the messenger in an effort to distract from the liabilities of H2O cooling. CLCs are a fad just as pet rocks were. They aren't needed and in most cases they don't even perform as well as a HSF.

Even with a 5 year warranty CLCs can and still do leak and damage PC hardware. They can cause a loss of important data and even potentially a house fire. The warranty doesn't prevent any of this nor the loss of use of your PC for weeks and the need to ship damaged PC hardware back and forth when the damage occurs. And people endure this nonsense for what purpose, just so that they can claim they are using H2O cooling? It's a pretty irrational decision when a HSF provides equal or better performance than all but the top CLCs and HSFs never leak water. Some people are easily deceived by marketing hype.

I recommend that people technically educate themselves instead of being duped by marketing hype and fanboism. Then buy whatever makes you happy.

Attacking the messenger doesn't change reality.



-------------------------

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

I don't think any of us "fanbois" have ever said CLC's don't leak...  We have said it is very rare.  Please if you are going to talk about us, at least get your facts straight.

 

And I will point out again that every single one of the top coolers in your list is a CLC, by a nice margin

And that Corsair warranties all components damaged by a leak, if it occurs, for 5 years. And that if you're going to use an FX-9000 series processor, you're going to need liquid.

One can minimize (potential) leak damage by placing the radiator assembly in the case so that the gpus, motherboard, memory and cpu are not directly under it if at all possible.

Never leave a high end or any PC build unattended for extended periods of time.
