Going new direction - help me decide

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I currently own ->

An RX360 Rad w/ 6 fans. A rasa res/pump combo. A Nzxt 810 Case.

Rest of system is below.

In order to get that custom loop working again i would need to replace a few parts lost in a recent move, including my CPU block, tubing, and fittings etc.


I am leaning towards selling off those things and getting an H100i - my GPU is now non-reference so it won't be in the loop. I am finding the custom loop to be overkill with only a CPU.

I think it will mount and look nice in the 810. My other option is to pick up the missing parts and rebuild the loop... most likely costing around $100.

What do you think?

Honestly I don't see the point of a custom loop if your not doing your cards either. I would probably go with the corsair AIO solution, you could make a fair bit of money from selling your kit, Also it's not like the 810 is a massive case that needs to be filled with WC gear.

The H100 would probably look good in your case too

I have to agree with Stickeelion. There's no need for a custom loop any more if you're just doing the CPU. The all-in-one solutions have matured to a point where they are easy drop-ins for people doing only CPU cooling and overclocking. And since they tend to put the pump on the rad or the block, the overall footprint of the AIO's is smaller and sleeker/less cluttered.

I've got the H100 in my Phantom 410 and I've had no issues or complaints.

I don't think it's overkill smile.gif

Something like that would outperform any AIO anyday

If you are stuck on the AIO my personal opinion is swiftech h220 seems to set the bar high http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tZgctchIQ7M


The major problems with the AIO is the issues you can't fix, you can't really maintenance that type of system even though they say you "never have to"
Just some food for thought, look at it as a one time expense that can never yield better results vs a one time investment that you can upgrade for better results at any point and time


best of luck to you mate thumb.gif

(on same page i saw this http://www.overclock.net/t/1375261/my-corsair-h100-leaked-on-my-new-680-gtx thought i should post tongue.gif , servicing your own equipment is one thing but when you receive something you have no control of, it hurts if the worst happens )

I must ask, so why would you not buy a cpu block?
It will be cheaper than a h100i and better. That rad you have with a nice setup will outperform the corsair any day!
