Thread Starter 
im thinking of getting one of those kit listed on the title and want to know which one is better, yes the xspc has a bigger radiator but how much more cooling will it perform better also there is no problem with case room issue as i will have the rad outside
im getting them from here they are also the same price

I would choose to go with the Alphacool for a couple reasons. The 30mm thick 240mm is going to be more than enough for your CPU, the 360mm would show big diminishing returns. The alphacool comes with compression fittings and I just get the feel that the whole kit is quality over quantity. After a very quick search I saw a lot more negatives about the XSPC X20 750 pump over the DC-LT pump Alphacool uses. Mostly people complaining about the X20 750 being a noisy pump, but thats subjective.
