New Waterblock or new setup

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I recently upgraded several components in my desktop and now the waterblock that came with my computer doesn't quite mount properly. I still have the same case Thermaltake Armor LCS, the pump, and radiator that came together. Any recommendations on new parts? Should I replace everything or just the waterblock? Price range is ~$300

I would reccomend the xspc rasa RX360. Iheard these kits are good bang for the buck kits. for at 200$. you get the rad, pump,tubing , the block and also the barb by the way the res and pump are together.

plus Ido not trust thermaltake parts anyway. the pump goes bad and the block isn't the best any way. me and my freind used tt parts before and they nothing but trouble.

if you do get the kit, make sure you buy some other tubing as the ones in the kit turn into a puke yellow/green over time due to the plasticiser warping from the heat.

Ordered the kit at your guys recommendation, my question now is how hard will it be to replace the Thermaltake radiator from the front of my case?
