Air cooling simply won't due for high overclocks on high leakage chips like the piledriver CPUs.

My recommendation is the H2O-H220 kits from swiftech, or if you aren't going to be getting it for a while you could get the H320. They're the best way to get into watercooling short of the Raystorm kits, and I tend to advise against those for AMD CPUs because the backplate on the AMD CPUs causes the XSPC Raystorm to bow, or so I've heard.

You are correct sir, it warps worse than poor window frames in hot weather rolleyes.gif

Unfortunately, you won't find an H220 for sale in America.. frown.gif
And I was waiting it out for for the revisions to be shipped to Microcenter.

Also, not sure about the cheaper raystorm kits.. The cheaper pumps have no MTBF rating somewhat weaker impellers or so I've heard. Also I think only a 1 year warranty..

Fortunately I live in the UK.

I'll have to have a look at this, as at the moment for £150 - £170 I'm getting a 6 core 3.5ghz cpu, mobo and 4gb of ram to upgrade my rather dilapidated machine.

Right, I suggested the H2O-H220, not the H220. Swiftech still sells kits from prefabbed Apogee Drive IIs and Apogee HDs, as opposed to their modified Apogee Drive they sell with the H220 CLC.

Those water cooling systems cost more than the RAM, CPU and Mobo will combined...


I think my wallet just killed itself.

.-. It comes with the MCP35x pump, which is the best pump out there. That alone is around $100, then the Apogee HD is a $70, then factor in a radiator with quality fans. You get what you pay for.

Beyond that, they are EXTREMELY upgradable, compared to most kits. When I say they are upgradable, I mean specifically the pump. Other kits have sub par to medium end pumps. I've seen people use the MCP35x with dual SLI video cards in serial, a CPU, and 5 Hardwarelabs GT Xtreme rads which are very restrictive.

It's a good kit.
