So go for it? i don't really care if its a deal lol. I'm only gonna buy it and replace my tuniq if its better cause its cheap.


But if its not better i have no use i sold all my other rigs.

Yea the tuniq is by no means a wimpy air cooler, that alienware piece of crap would match it at best, probably do a little bit worse. And there's absolutely no way that that thing can cool below ambients. It's certainly not phase change, there's no water chiller involved and with a single 120mm radiator, there is no way it could handle a TEC and an overclocked cpu. Well.... I guess you could make a res and boil some tea in it right before it shuts off from overheating

Looks like the cooler master Aquagate S1....

SO...its really umm...up to you lol.

Sorry for not helping much.

Agreed with TnB= Gir

Keep the Tuniq. This water 'cooling' system isn't worth it.

i have built several water cooling setups. It is not worth getting a water setup unless you drop a few hundred bucks on it and do it right. These cheap ones are not better than a nice AF HSF. your tt will give this water cooling rig a run for its money. Not worth it...
good enough
