So going custom... - Page 3

post #21 of 22
To be honest mate option 2 is 2x1 in terms of cost on a cpu only I dont think it will get x2 on performance.

I would get option 1

I would also use the primo tube right of the bat, the xspc stuff is soft and I just didnt like it, the primo tube is really stiff.. I dont even use hose clamps with it. I'm not recommending not using clamps tho

It is a bit pricey sure, and no way will it be twice as good. Option 2 just has all great parts from tubing to fittings. I don't plan on going air cooling again so the systems gotta last a while so I figure it's a one time buy might as well go for good stuff, plus with the RX I'm sure IF I ever wanted to cool a GPU or even the hot X58 NB chipset it will more then handle it.

Yeah I heard the same that's why I added 7ft of it in the cart for option 1.

option 3 although its $20 more it saves space also looks safer when transporting your case since its all sealed in one metal unit and cools round about the same as option 3 with 4 scythe ap-15s.
