not asking to much?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
ive been lookign thro the different component sites on the net and have found a few diff water cooling kits but im really new to this side of PC hardware so was hopeing that so1 could help me out ive got an old style Thermaltake Soprano SP1000 case which is a big case so wont have any trouble with size of parts im sure..

im not to worried about havein to cut it up or make some mods to it tho,looking to spend up to around a ton or £150 at max if was an amazing set up,lookin to just do CPU at first as havent got the best cards yet or even SLI so no need to use cooling on that at mo but want a set that can be added to later on as well as maybe the chipset as well but as ive got a ASUS P5NE-SLI board iev got that covered on a passive cooler front..and same for my GPU till got somethign worth cooling with water anyway..

ive found these kits my self but as i dont no what power of pump,how much it must pump an hour or what to add to the water what clips or clamps i need and not looking for old screw clamps like it my hose in garden either needs to look ok as gunna mod my case to in end but that was something else needed some help on with the window and moded cooling as well as they have added to the updated version of my case ive seen today on their site looks the same but really diff take on cooling it now..

so found and liked the:
Swiftech H20-120 Compact CPU Liquid Cooling Kit £88
XSPC X20 Pro CPU Watercooling Kit £70
Gigabyte 3D Galaxy II Water Cooling Kit with 120mm Fan Blue LED £94

not sure if any of these are any good or if they are really wrong for my case but they seemed simple and looked good to plus they have EVERYTHING that i would need to get it working which is another thing i really need as not to hot on this yet!!

REP+ coming for any info or ideas as seen some nice lookin systems around this site so im hopein to find some nice kit from u all...

and no wrong place for it but was looking for some ideas on how to mod my case to have a window but so doesnt look like ive just cut a window out a put some glass over it uano wanna try make a good job of it as my case did come with a glass model but i couldnt find 1 when bought my parts so got normal blank sided case...

The Swiftech kit has the best pump but the block it's built into isnt great (Laing DDC Pump)

XSPC X2O has the best CPU block and is the most customizable - (XSPC Delta V2 CPU Block - .5c Over the stock D-Tek Fuzion)

Gigabyte, IMO should stick to making Boards.. There liquid cooling aint the best!

if you can find it for under euro 150 i would get the swiftech h20-220 ultra. it can be had here in the states for about $250 but i don't know about over there. and i will say what most other people are going to say. its cheaper and better to build your own setup by piecing it together.

i asked a similar question before. from the responses i got it seemed that grabbing the more expensive swiftech kit was the way to go for a newbie WCer. i think i might pick one up when i get a quad core.
