Thanks guys. I am not going a full out system because I do not have the money to do so. But thanks for the suggestions. Has anyone used either the corsair or antec kits? I have been reading reviews and was just wondering if anyone has actually used them.

A lot of OCN uses the H series from corsair and they work well with good support, don't expect WC temps but the H80 is up there with the best air coolers and the H100 with new fans can probably pass everything else air.

Don't let that bother you. My rig has over 10,000 miles on it from travel in the car, and it has yet to leak.

I'm sorry I missed the part where you spouted anything except misinformation. Is it backwards day where you live?

For RS240 vs H60 start reading here.

Rasa block restriction:

Three above, three below. All the designs below are significantly newer and all are ~2x the price.


OP: I would get the Kuhler 920 or the H80. They're super close in performance, so whichever is cheaper.

ETA: If you go over $100, getting the H100 over the Rasa kit is plain foolish unless you are awful at maintaining things.

ETA2: Why not air, if I might ask? An NH-D14 will hold against an H100 and beat the pants off of any other closed loop.

my other concern is the price of a full system is so much more than what I am looking at. The full cooler now is under 100 bucks for the 920, which I hope to get. I just did not know the differences between the two even after reading reviews, it did not seem a clear cut superior product. I just wish someone reported temperatures with AMD instead of always Intel

how does the kit compare to building your own kit that cost a little more? i read allot of issues about the pump and that worries me a little.
post #19 of 21
i have heard of a few people having issues with the pump failing but the company replaces it fast with no issues. someone posted a image on anothe rthread about the rasa and it was in the middle of the pack when tested with other water cooling kits

I have a memory cooler that literally edges right up to my stock fan so I cannot get a big fan. Plus I have a side window and the NH-D14 looks awful in my case. The 920 is cool because of selectable LED lighting and just the fact that it is antec. I like the H80 but I will probably go with the 920 or the 620 because I have heard more positive about antec over corsair.
