are those as silent as my 230s? Silence is my number 1 priority

The AP-14 will definitely be silent. The Yate Loons are slightly faster but they are still very quiet. I myself have a set of Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000RPM. Puts me right to sleep

If silence is golden, then HW SR-1 radiators are the best you can get in terms of performance and quality. They don't come cheap tho. Just remember, the lower the rpm of the fan, the more rad you need. My 360 struggles with core i7 (4.2) and chipset with AP-15 undervalued to 1k rmp.

If you are looking for elegant mobo blocks that are not flashy, look no further than MIPS. They also have ram blocks but I would use caution, some contain Alu parts.

Can anybody recommend a really good water cooling kit or is it best to buy all parts separate.

XSPC and Swiftech make good kits
post #27 of 57
yeah i have heard of them but they both have a few different kits all costing different amounts, so i'm not sure if cheaper ones are okay to get or if i should be looking at the more expensive options. like does higher price mean better performance. thanks for the reply btw

I think I prefer EK. the ones on that website look just like a boring black waterblock with a bunch of screws in it.

Higher price does not always mean better performance. if its the same company thats selling 2 different priced kits the more expensive one is probably superior or it just has more components. stay away from kits unless you want it to be a dead end that you cant add to or upgrade without wasting money. the complete opposite of what im trying to do

With your motherboard, I'd recommend taking a look at the EK Supreme HF copper + acetal. The black contrasts with white tubing very well, and the copper block avoids all the nickel issues EK has been having recently.

If you want to save on space in the case, check out the Koolance RP452x2. Combined with two D5 pumps like the MCP655 you would have enough pressure for your loop while still keeping silence as a priority. If you want a more flashy res, a red liquid fusion reservoirs would go pretty well with your theme.

I know with some modding you can fit a 240 mm and at least a 360mm (maybe a 480mm) rad in your case. Are you opposed to external radiators, or do you want to stick to all internal? The SR1 radiator line would probably be perfect for you as it offers great performance at lower speed fans, so coupled with some AP-14 gente typhoons it would be silent.
