corsair doesnt make top of line coolers tongue.gif
what is your budget ? how soon do you want it ?
the swiftech h220 will be released by the end of next month. its an all in one cooler that is actually an actual real water cooling loop.
dont get the xspc rasa 750 kit. kit the d5 pump raystorm kit. you can even get the ex240/280 in these kits. the xspx pumps arent that great . but then again, ive been reading a lot about their bay reservoirs leaking...

Custom loop will always be the best option for ambient and above cooling on processors. If you want sub-ambient there are controlled TEC blocks. They still require a liquid cooling loop, but it is required to cool the TEC. So more cooling power is required to get the chip to sub ambient temps (think 10c to 15c).

Have fun, build a kit yourself with parts you like. That CPU is already worth a ton of money, why skimp out on the cooling equipment?

hey thanks guys really appreciate the feedback, as i stated before i am new to water cooling, so am i right to say that building your own custom water cooling is the best ways to go?
if so can someone link me up with some sites to choose the best hardware?thanks in advance.

Well, I'm guessing your best bet is ordering from a US based store ( I thought maybe you'd be in one of the european/US based islands).

It's just gonna be shorter and cheaper in delivery.

Performance-PCs
FrozenCPU
Petra
Sidewinders
Xoxide
Aquatuning (euro but great prices and deliveries)

Good Luck!thumb.gif
