Not really, the original kit looked like this (with enough fittings).

Then I added the 120mm rad, the GPU block , the flow meters, and the t-valve in my 2nd buy.
At first, I was looking for an Antec 1250 AIO on Taobao, then found these cheap kits. I'd started research about custom loop here and there, now I get addicted to water cooling.wink.gif

I think if your brought your stuff manually instead of using their kit, it should get you more parts.
250usd to rmb is about 1660 rmb.

A sc600 which is what you are using now, cost 50-70rmb.

fittings cost 1-2rmb per barb and 0.5-1rmb for a barb lock, and 3-5rmb for a compression fitting, tubes cost 1.2 rmb for a meter,

rads cost 400rmb for 480mm long 45mm thick pure copper radator, 230rmb for high quality pure copper radiator but is only 25mm thick, but has low resitance

alloy rads cost 130 approximatly for 360mm rads, 25mm thick and they used to sell 45mm thick alloy rads for 139rmb but then they stopped.

water blocks cost 68rmb for a good one, 5mm thick non jet. I have this block and with comparison to my other blocks that are jet and comparison to a cooler master micro channel block which has been lasped, its pretty much performing the same in terms of performance. most expensive chinese block for cpus cost about 130rmb-300rmb

res cost 39-60rmb for 300mm tall ones, with fiting for rad includined is about 49rmb average

GPU blocks cost a bit more, if you want the one thats a full cove its about 300-1000rmb, but 30-80 for a universial fit and about 130 for a gpu and ram coverage block.

you can get fans that are only 8rmb each, and has duall ball bearings, and you have allot to chose from just in the 8 rmb per 12cm fan range.

this seems to cheep to belive right? I have brought some my self and used them before, hard to belive its this cheap in china but it is

Of course, because the cheapest stuff is from diffrent selers on taobao you have to pay some extra 20rmb approximatly if its shipping to a house in china for every diffrent seller you order from

Hi- I also bought watercooling gear from china using aliexpress. Total cost is arounc 250usd including shipping.That includes the cpu block, gpu block 360 and 240 rads, pump and reservoir fittings and tubings.Well known watercooling brands are too expensive here due to import taxes from the US. Disappointed on the waterblock for my r9 290x still reaching 70 degrees.

I had plorbems with cpu blocks performance, and after lasping/ sanding it flat, it improved the performance allot, you may want to consider trying flattening your gpu block

My bad airflow was the problem. I removed the front panel of my case and now it barely reaches 60 degrees. I might try lasping it too as soon as i have the time. Thanks.

I wish I could have done like that. But as a newbie with no "experience" when came to WC, I had to choose the kit.
250$ just the estimated price I paid for several purchases, you could see in my loop it also has some 45, 90 fittings, and I have a lot of spare things now.
Right now, with the limit budget, I'm trying to "upgrade" my loop to better items, one at a time.
But as someone said, the fun is in the journey, not the destination. And I'm happy with what I've been doing. Cheers! thumb.gif

That's great, my 290 never reaches 60*, can you share your VRMs temp? Mines is bad when overclocking my VGA. tongue.gif

Mine maxes at 73 degrees for the vrm1 temps after 5 runs of heaven benchmark and the gpu core stays at 58 degrees. Dont know the ambient temps in my room but i dont have AC and im from the Philippines so it usually is 30 degrees and up here.

So I took a chance and ordered a Bkyski pump from aliexpress. I currently have it testing with a res and flow meter and so far it's working great. The actual pump I received was slightly different than the picture, but overall the same pump and I'm not dissapointed. Here is the original picuture:



And here is what I got. The pump has a different power cable on it but its the flat black wires instead of mustard and ketchup so no sleeving is not required, and slightly different top with the extra ports.



I believe this could be a syscooling OEM rebrand pump, but no label on it so not sure. I've been testing it for a couple of hours now and so far the flow looks good and as far as I can tell it is absolutely dead silent. The flow meter and PSU fan are louder to me than the pump, and I even muted Ancient Aliens to hear it better lol. Will post final pics once I get it up and running in the loop.
