Question: Should i pick up an H100 at my local best buy so that if i get one that has the noisy pump i can just take it back to the store so i don't loose build time?
My GTX680 should be here tomorrow, and my Asus x79 as well as my i73820!!!

"MOD IT"

as for the h100 id say go this
403

as u can add to it

like vga blocks rads pumps so forth u can customize and upgrade it as u like and u will have way more fun building it thumb.gif

Thanks for the suggestion bro....but i don't think that I want to do that for my first build!
I was thinking about doing some LED strips like the ones that I have seen on this Trooper forum... and maybe a side panel mod or two..

I love the liquid cooling (custom) idea, but I want to make sure that all the components are working and no rma's needed.. Plus school will be starting for me in a few weeks and I want this build to be complete and up to par BEFORE then!

I figure the side panel mods and the LED's would be a project that I could complete in short order without having my main pc down at all..

Keep the suggestions coming!!!!

I will post more parts pron tomorrow when the shipments get here!

Just installed an H100 in my case with just a push configuration. Even with upwards of 1.45 volts I wasn't breaking 70c in Prime95. I'd say if your not trying to over volt your chip (beyond intel spec) that a custom loop doesnt offer much advantage on the 2500k.

Here's some pix

2 ezy if u r only planing on wc the cpu than the h100 is more than up to the job thay are good i just cant justify that a all in one wc is dearer than the xspc rasa kit

you could make sure that all the components are working and no rma's needed under air coolers like a stock intel cooler than once u know u r o.k install the water kit

it may sound a little daunting constructing a kit for the first time


but if u are scared of it leaking when u fill for testing just leave it empty and test with a bike pump or something of the sort and if u hear air leaking from a fitting or the loop don't hold pressure look into it and the fact that the rasa kit has 7/16" hosing and 1/2" barbs its realy hard to get a leak as the hose has to be stretched over the barbs as the barbs are larger than the hosing this kit is an entry kit to make it all ezy for u

why pay more money for a worst performing product that is what it is and cant be expanded h100 $160........ xspc rasa kit $139


not trying to offend or pressure u into it but once u have the W.C bug u got it for life

ow and if u r using destilled water or a good non conductive coolant if it leaks it will do nothing or just shut it down dry it out and put it back together and your on your way again

i have gone to bed with a system running and when i woke the next morning i thort why is my puter off then i noticed the puddle on my desk
the res had cracked over night and drained my intyer look ther was evan a puddle on my vga cards and it pored its way down threw the pci slots striped it thrue them on the bench till the next day and put it back together and wola all good no damage

that was my best leak so far but i have had many leaks over my time as i use non conductive coolants or a killcoil and distilled water
dry it out and throw it back together nock on some wood and hit that power button

Just got this case to replace my NZXT Phantom...I was AMAZED at the quality! Hopefully when my level 10 GT comes in tomorrow I don't change my mind. It's between this and the lvl10, one is going back to amazon Monday morning :-/

DAMN, I don't think horror stories like that are going to encourage him to get into watercooling tonguesmiley.gif
even if it didn't do any damage, that must be quite a shock waking up to that.

Although I agree, going with the XSPC kit is an excellent idea, especially because he could get a videoblock later on. With a cheaper kit, he'd be able to overclock higher, so his components will serve him longer so it's a win win. But for a first time build, this maybe a safer bet of his, in the end, watercooling IS a lot of work.

the res was thermaltake (should have mentioned that) lolz and what dose everyone say about thermaltake (iv forgotan) doh.gif


the point is dont be afraid of the fact that ther is liqaud in your computer evan if ther is a mishap with the right coolant the chances of damage done is like way way lower than geting run over buy a car

we know that happens to people every day but we still walk across roads

iv had dust kill more hardware and mess things up

hay guys i was real bored and did this i think it would look good as a fan grill only on the back of the case but


i don't think i have seen one b 4

it was just a moc up but it could do 120mm fans and 140mm fans and yes befor anyone says thay would have bad air flow brobly would but i think its diff and with a little bit of thort u could probably get them to flow better like a spacer or something

I agree on the going for a "CUSTOM" setup I have a more expensive option (about $300 usd ) however it is closer to a fully custom setup.
