Who makes the best WC'ing equipment? - Page 2

post #11 of 31
Thread Starter 
I know its a each thier own kind of thing. I do different re-enacting time periods and it's kind of a pain when people come into re-enactors forums asking "whats the best." I hate asking that question on forums but in this case where I really don't know much about the different companies out there it was something I had to do. Its better then buying cheap junk and having problems with parts breaking or corrosion.

O I missed it. They probably posted it while I was typing the last message.

Koolance and Swiftech are both American companies, though I think most of their stuff is made in asia. Both are considered fairly high quality.

Here's what I was looking at. What I wasn't sure of is if this type of cover will cover the GPU/RAM/Mosfet on a standard reference 6970 video card.

Heatkiller makes decent products....honestly, It really will come does to personal preference in a lot of the equipment.(I chose my CPU block because it was a decent performer, but I really liked how it looked too.)

There are several sites that review w/c components and offer thorough comparisons....skinneelabs and martinsliquidlab are great.

we would need to know the exact card you have to tell you, easiest way is to match your card up on this and if you find a match to there reference blocks you good for the heatkiller.

looks like your out of luck on that one then, ek is the only one with blocks for those atm, which are all marked as being v2 (one example EK-FC6970 V2 EN)

I would have to say after having both EK and Aquacomputer blocks that Aquacomputer finish, looks and performance are far better than EK in all departments.

Koolance make great connectors and Quick Disconnects too.

Problem with Aquacomputer is demand for their products is really strong and they are a little slow to re-stock / manufacture at the moment.

Koolance CPU-370 is a great performing CPU block too and good looking with a good mounting system.

Swiftech Apogee XT II has great performance and looks too.

After owning all these I prefer the Aquacomputer gear.. it has a look and feel of quality that the others just dont quite measure up to plus some of the best performing gear.

Oh and Hardwarelabs for Rads!
