the H100 is compact, versitile, and available everywhere. it is a great start to liquid cooling.
excellent support and customizations. dunna know what "pricey" means to you, but this is
the least expensive liquid cooling solution. everything from this point can get 3-5x more in
cost.

I can't agree, the rasa kits are sometimes the same price/10-20$ more and you get future upgrade support. That being said pretty much all AIO units come from the same oem.

I thought there was something called the H40 lol. Personally I would stick with air coolers. They just seem more safe and passive then a water cooler. Dont get me wrong though, water coolers still yield great results.

Agreed. You can get some very nice performance if you spend just a little more then what a h100 costs. Custom/kit loops are just not as convenient as all in ones.

i knew i'd get called out about comment on the starter kits.. yeah, they start at $175, but
as usual, the user gets extra fans, different fittings, fan controllers, different hose and
what not.. and now its no longer $175.
the thread starter was concerned that the H100 was pricey to him.. so stacking a custom
loop starter $175 to H100 $110 is a grave difference...

I've seen the rasa's around $130... I paid $150 for my rx360... and with the kits you don't need to add stuff, it's an option, like a dedicated soundcard is an option.
One doesn't need more fans as the ones that are included with the rasa kit are actually pretty good fans.

Leaks are rare but they do happen. I have use the H50 before for a few years. Never had a problem. Currently using the Antec 920.
