That's what it costs for a mATX PC to be considered High End actually. It's more expensive for the smaller components usually.

as far as I know,The only difference would be the case & motherboard, which don't cost more at all.

AND !! they put a fan in front of that kind of restriction.. calling "intake" fan LMAO !! and because of that, ALL the others fan on the case its Exhaust..

fail ftw

OT:

to me it looks like tomshardware was doing a "off the shelf" parts so anyone can achieve the same results with no problems.. custom open loop?? no, no "plug and play" enough, and you all know that

Nothing wrong with not going with custom open loop watercooling.

I for one will never go custom open loop, the idea of cleaning algae, gunk, and water spilling on my expensive hardware doesn't appeal to me. Nor does the expense and time consumed setting it up.

So Tom's build appeals to me, and if you feel it lowly, well ho-hum, just know you're not the centre of the universe and it's not your taste or nothing.

(snapped with all this 1337 talk, and dissing anything that isn't a full custom loop)
Shhh!

I am actually in the market to buy a new mATX i7-2600K computer. I was thinking of using some parts from this build as building blocks.
