Best Watercooling setup (DIY or Kit) under $300 for O.C. 2600k and GPU loop?

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Want to OC 2600k to 5ghz and run a future pair of GPU's too. Now I will atleast need the cooling for the CPU, and have 1 vid card, that I'll probably just hook up while I'm at it, which will eventually turn into an SLI setup. I don't care how big it is (bigger[cooler] is better) as I'll be mounting externally, though I do care how quiet - cooling is still #1.

Many thanks!!

Not all 2600k's can hit 5.0 ghz, even on water.

Your best bet is...
-RX 360 rad
-aquacomputers gpu blocks
-EKHF Supreme II cpu block
-MCP 355 pump
-EK150mL res
-What ever 1/2" compression fittings you want
-1/2" primochill tubing in what ever color

Run distilled/kill coil

RASA RX360 kit + a waterblock of whatever card you have.
Should come out to around $300 shipped.
If you can, replace the tubing on the RASA kit, thats an inexpensive option.

this, except ek makes better gpu blocks. despite there previous nickel problems they are the best around.

also, id recommend the 35x over the 355 as they have come down in price drastically and come with a high performance top so there is no need to void warranty by installing after market top.

Is RASA RX360 compatible w/ 1155? It was not listed when I looked it up under a retailer.

With this kit, I think I'll probably just run it stock, save $150, and apply that to a second/duplicate kit for GPU....yay/nay?

RX360 plus gpu block of your choice.

And replace the tubing of the RASA kit...not the best out there.
