$200 CPU water cooling

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I've recently modded my case to fit a 240mm rad and I have 200 to spend and I wanted to get a whole setup going cpu block only for now I saw the H220 from Swiftech and it is expandable how is its performance? It's only 100 plus I need to make a mount any ideas on this also? I put up a picture of where it needs to go.

At that budget, your only option is an AIO water cooler.

Really I saw swiftech kits for around 180?

You can definitely do a cpu loop under $200. XSPC makes some nice starter kits that are under 200.

Like this one http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_202_972&products_id=39024

Yeah me too come to think of it. I looked into them a while back. I think they performed around the same as an AIO, with added noise and the extra work required to assemble them.

But then you aren't bound to an AIO loop. Even if starting with a starter kit like the one linked above, you can always expand on it later down the line. Get a new block, pump, rad, etc. And who cares about more work, this is OCN...we love getting our hands dirty thumb.gif

The new Swiftech H220x is coming out May 1st. Don't think it will fit in your case based on the new design of the H220x. It does have a very nice cpu block though.

You can check my rig. I expanded the H220 and its working perfectly.

How hard is it to change out the tubing on the h220? Black tubing would kill my color scheme of all white and red..
