I need an honest opinion please.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Ok, so I'm updating my rig alot and I'm wanting to go watercooling. I'm not too confident putting together a water cooling kit.

The parts I was going to buy equaled about 1100.

Included fans, switch 810, 670 ftw, h100, z77 sabertooth, 16b g.skill ares Ram.

But I just found this online.

http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=34242:cd0c91b5492db3553f0b2f437f06973d

yes I know it's over priced I could do it myself for less... but in this one case I'm willing to pay extra... I'll get the case I originally wanted, i'll get the color scheme i wanted and custom water cooling that can be approved upon later.



The price will only increase by 100 dollars. So should I get it?

I plan on getting into case modding, and water cooling... but i've never even seen a custom loop in person.. so i'd be lost. At least when i built my first computer last year I had seen one before lol... it just seems like this would be easier and help me get accustommed to it for future add ons.

Yeah it comes premade, that's why i'm thinking of getting it. I'm just scared if i buy it separately and try to install it i'll screw up. I think this though costing extra will get me on the right road.

For pretty much the same price though i can get this from frozencpu.

I Recently bought this case, and I absolutely love it! (The green trim and everything) I am looking to put together a custom water cooling loop in mine too.
From the prices that I have been looking around for kits and such, just add on $50 for them putting it together and such for you, I think it is worth it. biggrin.gif

I hope my insight has helped. I'm also new to the water cooling world too.. But the parts in there look to be pretty good water cooling stuff, compared to what I have seen looking for kits myself.

Good Luck!

Darlene,

The system in the OP is a dual radiator not a single. As quoted from the description on PPCS "We've taken care of all the hard work here by modifying the chassis to allow seamless installation of XSPC's Raystorm EX240 watercooling kit." The pictures show a dual radiator with the 2 X 200mm fans on the top of the radiator exhausting from the case while the 2 X 120mm fans on the bottom of the radiator are pushing. The second system he links to on FrozenCPU has a 360 radiator but uses the Rasa waterblock instead of the Raystorm.

I do agree with the idea of building your own, but I also understand the OP (as a first time watercooler) liking everything put together for him.

I wouldn't pay someone else to do it for me. It all connects easily as long as you read the directions. Water cooling requires maintenance as it is, you cant just let that run forever. In 6 months to a year, its recommended to tear it all apart to clean it and reassemble. You are going to need to know how to do it then, so I would suggest learning how everything goes together now. Putting it all together for you is a marketing gimmick. I doubt they are doing anything special, but they certainly are charging you for it.

honestly, do-it-yourself.
they do it is great.. but something bad is wrong... what next RMA the whole rig or what?
start with a small kit, familirize yourself with the function and placements and grow into
the full-blown water-breather you want.. most have done the same..
