But it is smaller and does not have as much flexibility as the Luxe. Plus I really like the looks of the Luxe better, just personal preference for that.

Yea, everyone has their own preference. I prefer mATX because I don't put a lot of drives in and since I game in 1080p, I don't need to run a multi GPU rig.

Just keep in mind, while the H240X is the best out of the AIO units, it is still only a small gain from high end air coolers. So if you really want a significant edge on cooling, then you may consider a loop.

I want and plan to eventually. Believe me. This is mainly for the aesthetics, I love my D14 but the fans are just so damn ugly. I don't think going full LC is worth it for me atm because my current parts are aging and I plan on building an entire new rig at the end of this year and WILL start my journey into real water-cooling. It'll also make it easier for me to transfer my current parts into my DEFINE XL R2 when I venture into the new goodies. wink.gif

Thank you for the information though!

No problem. smile.gif

I understand. I am actually apprehensive about water cooling myself, due to inherent risks. Although I must say it is quite tempting. Having said that, I am at a similar posistion. Even if I did want to make to jump to a loop, I think the money could be more well spent elsewhere for me as well. wink.gif

I liked your response a lot. Here is your fist rep, hehe smile.gif +1

As far as I can see you can branch out into a full loop configuration later on when you have a H240X, I think TallGray on here has done that, so that may be a good starting point.

I just finished my first water build myself and I probably overspent quite a bit more than my configuration actually needed, guess I'll call it future proofing for now since I will probably keep most parts in the loop a lot longer than the hardware.

Despite what you were just told......the H240-X is a small loop made up of top quality discrete components that is pre-assembled due to the demand for this. It is comprised of an MCP30 pump, 240QP radiator and Apogee XL CPU block. In other words, it already is real water cooling, and happens to be a great small loop on its own, or a great start to an expanded loop.

This is the beginning of your journey into real water cooling.

I've got about 400 or so in my loop now but the h220-x and H240-X do great by themselves.then when you make case move you have expansion ability for gpu mobo blocks and a couple extra rads....my initial setup with h220x and a used rad with fittings was around 200 dollars...

My Specs

Phanteks Enthoo Primo SE Black/Gold
Msi Mpower mb
Intel I7 4770K o/c 4ghz
16gb Vengance Ram 1600mhz
2 x R9 290/290X in Crossfire

Corsair H100 Cooler
using corsair 4 x 120mm af120

Just waiting for my AX360 xpsc with photon/D5 Combo Reservoir to watercool this baby.

cpu 1st then when i can afford it the gpu's (also 1st watercool build, so going easy)









So here's my updated rig after installing my water cooling

awaiting yellow led's for waterblock.

used Mayhem's Namron yellow dye

But I was thinking how is your bottom gpu cooling itself at all?

I ended up using a bay reservoir because the Bitspower 270 tube reservoir doesn't fit with the ASUS strix. I am currently leak testing it right now but it seems nice and sealed so far with my compression fittings







Its a work in progress. All I have left is to put LED and UV cold cathodes.
