I switched to a phantek dual tower and have gotten better temps, less noise and 0 failing parts

The five year warranty does not mean much if the product is a piece of trash in the first place.

I see people posting this kind of thing almost every day.

CLC coolers are not as good, as cool, as quiet, as cheap or as dependable as air cooler are. thumb.gif

Only closed loop coolers worth getting are the Swiftech H20-220 and -320 Elite but they come at such a steep price that most would just look to build a custom loop...

Swiftech H220 really isn't a CLC. It's component kit assembled and filled before before you buy it.. about half way between CLC and custom loop prices. smile.gif

I'm looking forward to seeing how it performs when expanded with GPU block and possible another radiator.

It works great for stock CPU/GPU

But when overclocking you are most likely going to need an additional rad

Thanks,
I had seen that one. Need to find out how well the pump will perform and last moving water with another radiator added into the loop.

I just put a Zalman CNPS9900Max in my new build, and I'm getting great temperatures with plenty clearance for my RAM and everything else. The fan is quiet on mine, as well, so I highly recommend. I avoided most others specifically for the "room to work" issue as well as aesthetics.
