post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi all

I'm buying a water cooling kit and wanted your opinion on which one to buy?

Asetek KT12A-12VX Waterchill Triple 120mm Power Xtreme

Or

Swiftech H2O-220 APEX Ultra Liquid Cooling Kit

Thanks

You can usually get a lot more for your $$$ putting one together your-self..Kit or custom you have to put it together yourself anyway, same difference to me...If you want us to help you set up a loop let us know what you want to cool and how much you can invest in it...But for your question it would be Swiftech any day.....

Swiftech sells kits, or you can just buy the parts seperately.

What do you want to watercool? CPU, GPU is the most common, or just CPU.

I would avoid Hard drives and RAM, water cooling them is a bit useless.

$400 for an Athlon 3000+!!!! I hope that $400 is for a different processor than the one in your sig.
EDIT~You can put together a very nice water cooling setup for about $250 or so I here??Never been into water cooling so I would not really know.
