Going the WC way ...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey guys so currently i ahve the 212+ on an 8320 and wanted to get WC on my system just for looks tongue.gif better temps (duh!) and for overclocking (even though im not a hard core bencher and what not just to get the most out of my chip) and was thinking either the RS240 or the Swiftech H220

So the pros of each what i have come up with is :
H220 - can buy it locally which is 149.99*1.13 (but have to wait 3-6 weeks according to NCIX)

or i can buy the RS240 which is 159.99 *1.13+ shipping fee. Which one would be better for me? im more in the direction of the 240 just cause it has a good pump, good reviews, expandable in the future gonna get some green tubing which will go nice in my green/black nzxt phantom (and green nzxt hue combo) i have hte original phantom and i already have two Gentle Typhoons AP-15s


so which one would be a better buy? i dont think ill be going for GPU WC any time soon

If you think you would be comfortable with a custom loop, I would definitely go with the RS240. Can always add gpus then too. thumb.gif

I agree, I would get the RS240 just in case for the GPUs sake! You might get addicted to it and water cool everything. It sounds like you want to change the tube coloring.

A custom loop will be a lot more fun, and generally increase your e-peen. It can yield much greater results than the H220, but at an entry-level kit, the performance will be about the same.

also another question -> the RS240 would fit completley fine in my NZXT Phantom right? i plan on doing push pull with my 2 Gentle Typhoons AP-15s (doing push so on the bottom) and the 2 XSPC doing pull (at the top) since the rad is slim it should be ok and provide optimal performance for cooling my 8320? biggrin.gif
