The sad thing is with only 100$ you can only buy a CPU / GPU waterblock, there's still tube, rad, pump, fitting, coolant, and res (optional) to buy.. That at least is close to 200$ I believe..

Plus, buying a closed system watercooled like this do not need a maintenance and do not interfere with ram heatsink like any other behemoth air cpu cooler does.. With extra money off course...

You wanted better performance for your money, that's why you built your own PC right? Which also has it's own risks. Since you can put together a PC and have it operate flawlessly, you can put together a waterloop and have it work flawlessly. There's such thing as non-conductive coolant that doesn't affect PC components if a minor leak happens. I wouldn't have purchased my H60 if it was more than $50, got it for $47AR.

If I'm spending $100+ for a watercooling kit, I'm building it myself.
There is a lot of fail in this reply.


As a previous water cooler myself, I can see the allure of these closed loop systems. I DID have to clean my loop out occasionally to ensure that it remained dust-free.

While I used a non-conductive fluid in the loop, I still worried that the stuff would leak when I went to LAN parties and such. Also, having a huge triple radiator outside my case was a liability and made the system super heavy. Having a big case just to fit the rad inside isn't much of an alternative.

These products from Antec and Corsair kinda meet in the middle and offer nice-to-haves like Antec's built-in monitoring software and LEDs that offer a ton of bang-for-the-buck.

Sure, a $200 custom loop will beat this sort of a setup, but its ridiculous to suggest that just because someone is apprehensive about going full custom that they should "just go out and buy a dell".

Yeah, let's see XSPC or whoever replace your system when your Rasa kit springs a leak.

P.S. Do we really need to know that your message was sent from your DROIDX?

So how would you mount the H100? I have a p182 and like most people I only have one fan in the back and one on the top.

How would H100 compare with SIlver Arrow and D14? Better I presume?

It's already a toss up between the H70 and NH-D14. However, people who have modified their Corsair kits with 240 rads have seen temperatures drop 5C to 10C, so the H100 will definitely be cooler than the Silver Arrow and D14.

You didn't understand my post. I didn't tell him to go and buy a Dell, I pointed out the reason why he didn't buy a Dell after that sentence. Also, you worried about leaks, I'm talking about the loop actually leaking on the parts and using non-conductive coolant. Your reading comprehension fails.

XSPC Rasa, Google it. We're talking about a potential $120-140 closed loop kit.
Just saying the custom loops are better, that's all, which most would agree.
What we don't agree on is paying for convenience over performance.

Not gonna lie, I kind of want this kit. It's about time I upgrade
