Performance-PCs, FrozenCPU, and Sidewinder are good places to look. I can definitely recommend XSPC's kits.

yea I like the look of some of the XSPC stuff for sure!

next question if ya'll don't mind (I like picking peoples brain on stuff like this haha i feel a discussion is far more valuable than specs on a website) what do you recommend for a newb... the things i'm looking for are

1x 240mm Rad
PREFERABLY a pump/res dual slot combo thingy
a good block for AM3+ (FX-8350)
2x good fans for the rad

and would LOVE to spend less than $150 but out preform an H100i

also possibly looking at either a 650D or 550D corsair case (probably 650D cause i think the parts would fit a lot easier) but i will be getting one of these as my current case sucks donky nuts

EDIT: something like this I guess but knowing nothing I don't know if this is a good starter kit that will outperform an H100i

that block looks expensive though with those LED's ......

That looks like a good kit, I would think it would be better then a closed loop for performance but even if it was the same you have the option to do what you want with that kit were as a closed loop there is no expanding it . and yes the XSPC parts are good quality .

The water block is $50 and martin seems to have given it good reviews

thanks guys appreciate the websites.... i think i'm going to go with the raystorm RS240 750 pump all in one kit... right now i can get it on amazon for 147 and free shipping!

what do you all recommend for fluids? what out there has high thermal and no/low electrical conductivity for a good price per liter?

good choice I think the XSPC kits are very good and as far as coolant goes I would use distilled water and PT nuke ...


I love this video it goes to show keeping it simple sometimes is the best ... Fun with coolant

what do you think about killcoil as an additive to distilled water? reason I ask is that amazon ships the kit with a free bottle of Killcoil... I have found mixed reviews on almost all the additive products lol so it gets a little confusing tongue.gif

and where do you get PT Nuke? I Can't find it anywhere!

EDIT: NM i think I'm just going to go the amazon / free kill coil route as it seems easier to maintain and if my chemistry class serves my right everything people are complaining about silver is wrong hahaha, it has a natural charge and kills microbes, not sure how it could do much else tongue.gif

yea it can get confusing just keep it simple and use distilled water and kill coil . I have been using distilled for years and just added a kill coil to my gaming rig and the other is straight distilled .
