Best liquid cooling kit under $300

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm new here and would like to get some feed back from you geniuses. I'm currently in the process of re-building my system up and would like to know what is the best liquid cooling for under $300. Would prefer a kit that is ready to go, but would listen to all advise and recommendations. The kit will be cooling a i7 965x cpu.

Any thoughts on this kit that i've been looking at below:

That's a good bet if you have a case that can take a 360mm radiator.

Edit: Or go custom as mentioned above. yessir.gif

XSPC Rasa kits, or if you're thinking a pre-built WC system check out Corsair's H Series.

What you can use mostly depends on your case (What size rad you can mount in your case etc.).

Also Welcome to OCN wave2.gifwave2.gif

Don't forget to add your system in User CP smile.gif

Also, I think the link is broken.

If you have a 800D then you want to do what I said, the large pump is expandable where as the rasa pump is a bit on the weak side. Then when it comes to water cooling the GPU's you grab another rad if needed and off you go.

I would go for the EK. The pump is ok, and upgradable later on. They got the best CPU block and so on.

+1 on the rasa kit, the pump really is fine for a cpu only loop. I would advise getting different tubing though, I would suggest some primochill lrt personally, I would also add a t junction and a drain port. I would spend the minimum now, as you learn more, you'll know better what you want to upgrade and go from there.
