Interesting if these will perform better than the other dozen or so.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

It's from Swiftech so we know the Tubing is going to be a good size, the radiator isn't going to suck, and the Water block will actually cool.

I want to see the block internals (probably an Apogee). I am also curious about the pump. The tubing looks like 3/8"

Well it's better looking and probably better performing that those Thermaltake Kits and that Cooler Master one that looks terrible.

Honestly, I would get a Tuniq Tower or Ultra eXtreme over these. If you are going to go water cooling you need 1/2" Tubing along with Danger Den and Swiftech parts (and the minimum I would spend would be $150).

It uses the Swiftech Apogee Drive

Exploded view:



It looks to be using a variation of the DDC

Same here.. these kits are for the people that want to say "ZOMG I GOT WATER COOLING YO" when they don't know a thing about watercooling and all they have to do to set something like this up is just mount the radiator and block.

So If people want something thats quiet and cools better than air, but don't want to spend a fortune for an uberkit there a wannabe?
