Not close to the Pro, and has big airflow issues.

If you are going to do an AIO, make sure you at least get a Swiftech or EK. There is no benefit to CLCs, substantially louder than air, more expensive and have the same performance.

The EK is expensive in the US, but the Swiftech H220-X2 is only a little more than a CLC. I know a lot of Eurpoeans get them from Highflow.nl - http://www.highflow.nl/watercooling/watercooling-sets/aio-kits/?features_hash=2-128

I agree with Ciarlatano on the cooler topic. If you plan on a sealed AIO cooler for your CPU, you should perhaps rethink that. They are loud, and underperform compared to similarly priced air rad's.

Thanks to you both. Could you recommend me anything? On my current one, I have a Hyper 212 Evo on my current system, but I don't know if that's good enough after today's standards.

@Bugses Look into the Alphacool Eisbaer line of AIO they are expandable (if you ever care to do that in the future) and offer better performance (like the EK Predator or Swifttech) than traditional AIOs. In the US they are significantly less than both the Predator and Swifttech models but in the EU, I have no idea the cost differences or preferred store to purchase from but here are links to the Eisbaer models for you to check out:

Alphacool Eisbaer 120: €94.95 * Prices incl. VAT

Alphacool Eisbaer 240: €114.95 * Prices incl. VAT

Alphacool Eisbaer 280: €124.95 * Prices incl. VAT

Alphacool Eisbaer 360: €139.99 * Prices incl. VAT

Have not posted on here in years so hopefully I got the links correct if not just vist alphacool.com and you should be able to navagate to the Eisbaer models.

Hope that helps and good luck with your build.
