HELP! Watercooling kit for 3930k! + Case?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can someone tell me the best watercooling kit for roughly £130 = (rs240 kit $?)
I'm getting a 3930k and I'm not bothered about watercooling anything but the 3930k. I Would like to OC a lot and keep it under boiling point while also keeping noise down!

I have no idea since reviews and comparisons are not common!

EK and XSPC seem to be the two to buy from. Help would be appreciated greatly!

If you spent that much money on a 3930K. You might as well wait for the money to buy an RX360 kit. It's 50 more...

I vote to get the rx360 if at all possible. You just might change your mind in the future, as many people have, about watercooling a gpu too later on.

I understand, but I do not want to watercool anything but the 3930k, surely the RX360 is overkill? Surely there is a point where it does not actually matter how big your radiator is?

I'm not gaming on this machine, it's more for 3DS Max, and also I'm guessing I'd need a huge case for something that big?

Famous last words lol Watercooling for GPUs is better than CPUs. The GPU sees an even bigger benefit from it than a CPU does in terms of temperature drop. I guarantee you you'll want to drop a GPU into your loop smile.gif

Nothing wrong with the kit, however XSPC should have better kits on the way using the EX rads and Raystorm CPU block. Dazmode in Canada already supplies them, so i guess its only a matter of time before they become mainstream.

If your really really sure your not going to end up expanding your loop, then a 240EX should be fine.
