The 240 LT set is a no go. And the 240 XT is too expensive for now.
If I go with the 144 euro kit I am stuck with the crappy pump, which is known to have caused problems.
If I do plan to upgrade later to cool the gpu also I have no problem to add another radiator.
The pump that comes with the h220 is powerful enough to supply enough pressure if I expend the loop with another rad and gpu block.
This is stated of you read through the review properly.

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 !!
Yeah Martin has some epic reviews
I trust him over anybody.
I like real data when something is being tested.
And you are right, I did my homework and when I buy a proper kit to cool my cpu and gpu It would cost me about 400, at least.
I am not the kinda person that is going to save on money in the expense of quality.
And the h220 is proven to be of good quality. Especially the pump. Only the fittings could be better.
I have no problem to spend about 150 to 200 later when I DO plan to expand the loop to include my gpu.
Would still be only ~150-200+140(h220)=~300-350
Sure, If I did have the money now to go all the way I wouldn't be asking about the h220.

I just started this because I am about to buy a h220 and was asking you guys here for some advice because I don't to make the wrong choice.
But it seems like the h220 is the way to go for me now.
