I'm just getting started on reviewing one of these, but the Apogee drive will probably become my highest recommend for those looking to save money. It has a better flow than the Apogee GT, so it probably performs similar if not better than an Apogee GTX and it has a built in Lang DDC 3.1 pump motor on top. What I really like about it is the pump can be easily modified to a Laing DDC 3.2 by a simple soldering connection and pump can easily be removed and pump top added to it if you wanted to change blocks out later.
So for a low budget but still well performing system, it'll be hard to beat.
Drive includes pump plus Apogee GT block integrated $80http://www.ncixus.com/products/25711...RIVE/Swiftech/
Then get at least a double rad like this MCR220 $35http://www.ncixus.com/products/20089...QP-K/Swiftech/
Add a "T" fitting for your reservoir, some tubing and antifreeze/water mixture and you'll have a good upgradable kit for about $120.
Later if you decided you didn't like the block, you could buy an aftermarket top for the pump motor. It's really an amazing deal really. You basically get a $40 waterblock and and $80 pump in an $80 price package.
If that exceeds your budget, a $60 TRUE would be the best performing.Edited by Martinm210 - 5/27/08 at 11:49am
