also, I feel I could recommend to you, the Rasa 750 kit. It's a great beginner water cooling all-in-one kit (that totally doesn't suck) and has everything you need right in the kit for a really great price.

I bought it for my first kit and it was super easy to install with a little help from the sticky guides up in the water cooling section. I went a little behind what the kit gives and got myself some compression fittings, a few quick disconnects, as well as some primochill UV green hosing. I also had some gentle typhoon ap-15s to use instead of the stock fans that comes with the kit. Other than that, though, it's a fantastic kit and the parts are actually pretty good - despite such a low price.

As far as maintenance goes, it's not that bad - especially if you have a few quick disconnects in your loop. Use regular distilled water and some ptnuke and/or kill coil (I use the killcoil AND pt nuke) and you shouldn't have too much trouble with any growth in the system. I haven't yet and I have been going for about 4-5 months now.

That sir is an assumption,
the chiller isnt actually that loud due to changing out the fan for one of equal CFM but lower overall noise.

the compressor noise is negligible,i went to my next door neighbours place and listened out for either the compressor or the fan.

I had to really listen out to be able to hear it and my neighbour couldn't hear it at all.

my old chiller was a tank LOL,the BTU was roughly the same as what i use daily but it was a much different fan layout and noisier compressor that caused the perception of excessive noise.

I sold a 12k BTU unit and a 3.5k BTU on the weekend and i did toy with the idea of using the 12k for chilling all the computers in the house but again-its was too loud to be usable without causing problems with neighbours.

Liquid cooling FTW!

Uhh, I don't know about you, but if I can hear it from my neighbors house at all it's pretty damn loud.

If you maintain your loop more often it takes less time that leaving it for years etc. Plus you can clean out your rig from dust etc at the same time.

Like i said i had to really listen out for the sound i had grown accustomed to,my neighbour couldn't hear it at all so i guess it's not just me.

Back on topic though,even using a slightly more complicated liquid cooling setup using aircon to cool the liquid instead of a rad is well worth the effort involved.

This has to be done every 6-8 months or so however only takes an hour or so.

Water cooling is expensive, but a hell of a ride. Could t recommend it more, so long as you have the cash.

Thanks guys, I'll most likely be being a setup to go with my next build, sometime next year. Just curious about watercooling


If I do... I'm going real big but then again, this is roughly 8 months from now so... who knows what other cases they will whip up by then for me to buy

lol no offence, but in the scheme of watercooling, thats a kid-sized case. If you want to go "big" then there is the Mountain Mod sized cases

Still a beautiful case in your link though, and welcome to the water-cooling forum!

That's too big. By real big I meant the Loop and whatnot not the actual case.


but still, it's a pretty generic loop from what I've seen.
