as in the past you can slam him all you want, but i actually trust him unlike everyone else i have seen, scientific methods and well documented.
granted it is less expensive then h220 the h220 beats it in every section but pump speed.
and no a custom loop would be far more expensive,
Warning: pricing! (Click to show)
rad for cpu ~50-90
rad for gpu ~50-90
cpu block ~60-90
gpu block ~100-160
total 340-520, and that is just off the top of my head prices ( lows and highs ) although there are other options maybe in the rad dept. does not include the tubing and coolant
h220 - 150 ( can get on sale for as low as 100 )
rad for gpu 50-90
gpu block 100-160
( all in us pricing and from us stores, although your pricing over seas may be different ) even though even at the high end you are only saving 100... it is still 100
as far as the kit you suggested, is ok, but he would still need a second rad and gpu block, so yea, not much saving, although it does include some tubing, coolant and fittings, which is nce and the other pricing i posted does not. distilled is king of coolants
~$1 per bottle and biocide is only 5 for a bottle which will last years !
not worth it tbh, 6mk/w is more then enough for vrms, the 17mk/w are for golden gpus you are trying to sqeeze everything out of, either way gl !!
welcome let us know if you need any help !!
Well i don't know the guy so i don't have any thing to say bad about him...
I did searched the net before i had the corsair h100i and what i saw was that it performed better than the h220, its not much but still better is better.
As i can hear in the video of him, he uses the older corsair link drivers and were buggy and the fans did not ramp up like they should.. i should know because i own one and had to call corsair for replacement fans but after it was the firmware that was buggy.
Yes the fans are loud but they push an enormous amount of air through the rad, they have 4.0 mm/H20 for crying out loud.
Now i run push/pull i can run it in silent mode now and i do not even hear the fans above my system fans.
According to your price for custom loop, the prices you mentioned are not the same prices as i can get it from here. we are from Holland remember..
And a custom loop is not that much expensive, i don't know if you seen the link i posted before with the retail shop where i order things i can get an AlphaCool NexXxoS Cool Answer 240 for 144 euro's while the Swiftech H220 is 149,90...
pay 50 more and you have the AlphaCool NexXxoS Cool Answer 240 with a nice thick rad that will outperform the Swiftech H220 in every-way possible.
I do agree with you if you pick the parts separately you are going to pay a lot more but why bother in if they have a complete kit in the first place?
they have a lot more cooling units, here's a link for ya: http://www.alternate.nl/html/product/listing.html?navId=11570&tk=7&lk=9351
