True dat...(I was banned from a local forum for saying that lol)

Anyway, I'd reccomend against buying any kits before doing some serious amounts of research, otherwise you might end up having unexpected problems or not happy with your investment.
A custom loop is a serious thing, one mistake and you can kill all your rig, or you can have the best cooling for 24/7 use, dead silent or tailored exactly for your needs and preferences.

I'd reccomend you read these stickies found here:

That should give you a good idea of what to look for and how to build your loop properly.

EDIT: The only kit I'd reccomend is the new Swiftech H220, cause it's priced really low for what it is, and you can later expand it to cool your gpus and add rads or a res. But trust me, first read those stickies, it's worth it.

I know more than fully well about that, I think it took me like a week to actually get everything working and running properly, and still it wasn't running properly, which I noticed after I put it all in the case and temps dropped another 7-8C from previous load temps tongue.gif

But it is DEFINITELY worth the hassle once you get it running properly.

and inst that Swiftech H220 like the h60
post #17 of 20
Nope, the h220 is like a custom loop, but pre built. Copper rad, good waterblock (one of the best), expandable, powerful pump (like 4x the h100i pump)...really cheap for what it is.

I'd stay away from those XSPC kits, the pump/res combo is not too good for a full loop if you want to expand it, and it's kinda pricey really.

Get a bigger rad, if you want a custom loop then a single 120 radiator is pretty pointless imo, get atleast a 240, even a 360 like I have for DAS COOLING!

You would be good to go with an H220, it would suit your current level of knowledge and it's easily installed.
You really need to do the homework and read that stuff I linked before. Going and buying random kits premade and asking if they are good will not cut it, cause those kits are not preassembled.
