The pump they use in those units is very good and you get a lot of good products inside that kit for the price. Actually, all the components of that kit are pretty good.

The Swiftech units are excellent, offer better support than those CLCs you're looking at, and only have real issues with user error. The vast majority of users have no issue, and you are able to expand the loop to the GPU, which is where most of your heat and noise will be coming from.

Also, air cooling handily competes with CLCs when you account for noise. Sure, if you don't mind your PC pushing out 60dB and the bottom line is performance/maintenance, go for it, but if you want sub-40dB at load and the bottom line is performance/noise, noise/performance, go for a proper loop or air.

I was just going off of the reviews i read, there was tons of negative reviews about quality/leaking, i obviously have no first hand knowledge of them.

I dont care if its slightly louder, i dont equate performance to noise.

Reviews you find on amazon newegg and other places are pretty much worthless so its pretty much a waste of time reading them.

Consumers are more likely to leave a negative review than a positive review. Take consider reviews with a grain of salt. Most of them have no idea what they're talking about anyway.

As far as PSU is concerned, literally every PSU on the market fits in your budget.

I said you won't be looking at the case because you'll be too busy using the computer. Any time spent admiring the case would be while you aren't using the computer, which is perfectly fine. I just don't know why you would spend so much money on a computer to spend a lot of time admiring the case.

As far as airflow is concerned, you still need to push air through a radiator to cool everything off. I'd rather have the silence of a good air cooler. With your budget, I still suggest a custom loop if you have your heart set on liquid.

See others' posts; ~10-20dB for max performance/3-4* is not "slightly" (dB is logarithmic, not linear - 3dB is "twice" as loud); your $, my 2cents.gif

Yeah I understand what you're saying for sure, I usually do take them with a grain of salt; however, there was a LOT of them which is what prompted that response.

I am in the process of watching some vids on a custom loop as I had originally really wanted one but settled on the AIO, but now im really back into the custom loop smile.gif

Ive made the change on PSU to a evga 750 for $119 cdn.

Custom loop is the way to go if u want to go water, the aio from swiftech and ek are just a waste of money because sooner or later you want custom.
