No you clearly didn't, your quote is just there for context of what Ciarlatano was saying

Ultimately the best water cooling system for anyone is going to be what best suits the end users budget and needs, if that makes me an EK fanboy so be it wink.gif

Here here.

and apparently pointing out their kits might be equally good value to others qualifies as being a fanboy in some peoples minds. If so I guess I'm doubly guilty. Oh, the shame of it.

Just to add to cairlatano's AIO, CLC and iar cooler test results graph, he also did some testing of H240 X with fans at 850rpm and pump at 1350rpm with system noise level at 33dB(A) with CPU temp 69c .. 5c warmer but whisper quiet. I don't have his original review graph, Just the one I made of his data

Do you ever actually read anything. It seems like maybe that is something you should be bothering with champ. Its not A d5 pump. It is the X4 pump as I said. XSPC's own lower cost pump. We have seen where that road can go VPP 755 anyone?

You obviously don't even have an understanding of what the XSPC kits contain and yet you are promoting them as superior value. That's top level advice, well done. thumb.gif

That's about as fanboy as it comes. rolleyes.gif
Too blinded by your own predetermined bias to read a provided link and so sure of being right that no evidence is needed.

This is why I do bother. It's entertaining watching them dig a bigger and bigger hole of nonsense that they are just so, so sure of and it gives an idea to new people who they can take seriously.


For the OP

This thread has some pretty wild inaccuracies being bandied around like the small example above. There seems to be some people quite insistent on doing things their way rather than providing help to do it your way. Just take everything with a grain of salt is my recommendation

I stand corrected, but only because I did read the link provided. This is right in the link, and clearly states it is a Laing D5:


Obviously an error on PPC's site, and I was unaware that the D5 is now only available with the RX in a kit. With that change I would agree that the EK is the better kit at ~$250.

So now that your recommendation for the XSPC kit has changed to EK, do you recommend the liquid series just like Ashcroft? Or something else within the EK kit lineup?

as for building a water loop for cheaper, I been there, and I am done with all that hassle. I would love to say that getting cheaper parts will create a great custom water loop, that will last for years, but because I know that doing so would be a absolute lie, I wont do it. all I will say, is that this is your water loop, and you have the right to build it how ever you would like to, all I have done is provide my input on the parts available.

The other question you missed was what guide, if any, was the most helpful to get your feet wet(pun intended) into water-cooling? Is there any guide in particular you would recommend for a first time novice watercooler? I would prefer a video guide more than a guide online as I learn better through seeing it rather than reading about it.
