I'd say it was definitely worth it to go with a custom WC setup. Although I found it was quite nice to start with a kit and build up.


PS: I just gotta say it but I'd get some different fans. Theyre not bad, but they move no where near as much air as my Scythe Slipstreams do.

To my knowledge they are not out yet.

nice choices you made mate. are you planning on running a dye in the coolant or is that why you went with blue tubing?
post #6 of 19
No from a practicality/cost stand point.

But it is fun for sure. That is worth it to me.

If you're going to be doing some amazing OC'ing, definitely worth it no doubt. If you're not going to doing any major OC'ing then not so much worth it in my opinion.

But this is OCN afterall and overkill isn't in our vocabulary.

Huh, didn't know. (Didn't really bother to check but still) *Shrug*

I found my custom loop to be another hobby all in itself. There has been a couple times i tore the loop apart just to reroute some tubing to have something different to look at. If you want a silent pc and added depth to your builds, you should go for it.
