'Sup, OCNers!

I am planning to switch from 360mm rad wc system to pre-filled watercooling kit, as they require almost no maintainance. Can you suggest some options?

I am asking, because I actually started my watercooling experience by building custom assembly right away - skipping the easy part of getting some experience with pre-filled kits.
Now I feel I need a simple, reliable system. SIMPLE. Without tons of tubes filling up the case and maintainance, which doesn't require emptying entire system, tubing change & everything.

As you can already guess, I have no idea what to pick.
I have a FX-8120 currently clocked at 4.4GHz and my current loop holds it idle@33C, everyday load@42C, 100% stress load@48C
I know these kits can't provide the cooling of a 360rad, but, if it could hold the beast under 60C 100% load, I'd be satisfied.

There is just one problem - my case doesn't have any 120x240mm or 140x280mm vents, so either I
  • Get single 120x120mm rad kit
  • Get single 140x140mm rad kit
  • Cut the case, install some mesh & go with double size rad config. (120x240mm or 140x280mm)
(I've set a poll, feel free to express yourself smile.gif )

So, whaddaya think? Poll, comment, anything thinking.gif

You want a minimum of a 240 rad,especially for that hot AMD chip.

Yes,they are all much the same tho,Corsair have the better warranty....useful as the AIO's are prone to breaking,normally the pump goes..
