Custom loop vs Prefilled Kit?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Just wondering how big the performance difference would be, because adding parts in my shopping cart for a custom loop and using some of my old parts (D4 pump and swift tech Dual radiator) seems to be around $180 before taxes. Versus just buy a prefilled loop for $70-$80. They're both going to be dual radiator loops. How does using an XSPC Raystorm and a higher flow pump compare to a prefilled loop (say a corsair) compare?

There are a lot of variables here......... Comparing custom loops to pre-filled units is going to have results all over the place.
