aquagate mini R120 substitute

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hey I'm venturing into my first liquid cooling project. I have read all the literature I have found and most of it has been very helpful. Aside from when zealots start raving lol

Big ups for DeathONator for his awesome guide!

I would like to purchase a liquid cooling kit first before I build my own.
I had a little look around and I found the coolermaster aquagate mini R120.
From what i have read it seems to be a pretty good little kit, for its purpose.
The only problem is I cant find one in my city Adelaide and everywhere I go they tell me that liquid cooling kits are very rare and that they are hard to stock and mat take up to 3 months.
I did not want to purchase this particular item from the internet due to return issuse, but I guess Im forced to, no biggie really.
Finally, my question to you guys is what would be a good first timers kit to purchase? I like the R120 due to its simplicity, having the water block and pump integrated. It literally made me smile haha

Im looking at a universal kit, but I'm running a P4 478

Thanks d00z0rs

That is a pretty bad idea, actually. Not only does it come with a crappy aluminum radiator and tiny hosing, the pump is weak and will probably leak.

If you want a built in pump look up the Swiftech H20-120 compact cooling kit. Although I've heard conflicting stories on how whether the pump+block combo is safe.

Here, I've even done the hard work for you: http://petrastechshop.com/swh2cocpulic.html

Next time read more, I'm sure there's a million threads about how ****ty the aquagate system is. Thermaltake is terrible too. So is Kingwin. All kits but Swiftech and Petra suck.


Edit: They ship internationally. All you have to do it call them.

thanks for the link and the advice. I hadn't heard of the swiftech model before, but as I said, Iv only just started looking.

The swiftech looks better, both physically and statistically. I had a look at a few of their other products also.
