new to watercooling and have compatibility questions

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about getting this water cooling system fo my thermaltake armor case http://www.newegg.com/product/produc...82E16835106063 and was wondering if it this chipset water block http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...iftech%2bmcw30 will work with thermaltake cooling system? Only reason why I ask because the hoses for the thermaltake hoses seem pretty small and does not look like they will fit on the chipset water block nozzles and also is that good watercooling system for the price?

it should work if you usethe 3/8" barbs, but its not recommended doing that at all, especially on a TT kit.
post #3 of 24
Tt kits are 'death in a box' ... stay far far away.

Mediocre performance with a tendency to die all together..your cpu does not want any. Piece together a small kit using a good 1/2" system.. maybe a small pump like a mcp355 + a 120.2 rad and a Fusion block..could still be under 200$ and 10x the performance ans security of the Tt kit.

If you're dead set on purchasing a kit, spend a little more money. Seriously, when it comes to water cooling, you really do get what you pay for.

Quality almost always comes with a hefty price tag in water cooling. May I interest you in some kits put together by Petra's Tech Shop? Lol, they're almost out of stock on everything. Well, you get the idea...

Besides, according to one of the user reviews on Big Water, seems like the pump stinks. I mean come on, the pump is the heart of the loop (literally!). For TT to skimp out on the pump causes TT to lose credibility right off the bat in my book. Sorry if that comes close to bashing the product.

I have no problems bashing Thermalturds *take

They have crappy support and do not answer emails. Which is essential in a company. Especially when the product you produce is always failing.

Just steer clear of them.

DD is good, Swiftech is another, they still have some parts i wouldn't use that have aluminum in them, Swifty not DD......This is a pretty good kit..Fuzion Kit...Get the 320 rad option and the highest cfm fans for it...Its still a compromise, the best way to build a loop is to buy the components and do it your self...Kit or custom you still have to put it together, same difference to me....

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835108105 is an affordable option.

I have the H20-120, and its been great for 5 months. However some people have had issues. That being said for the money, you could add the gpu into the loop, then down the road, get a seperate pump/block.

Just an idea, GL
