What Kit

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
so for my up and coming build i am thinking about using water cooling. I want to just cool an AM2+ socket CPU to start but add on GPU coolers and a northbridge cooler. I was wondering if there are any kits in the $100 range that i could start out w/ then upgrade the pump as i add more blocks? Becuase this is a budget build but i want the water cooling for noise and overclocking.

CPU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819103300
GPU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814127333
Case (im using a different PSU): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811156135

How would this be if i bought i new pump for it once i wanted to add on more blocks and what not.

Just say no to thermaltake watercooling. You probably won't be able to get a decent setup below $120

Never buy thermaltake liquid cooling products. It will cost more, but this kit from Petras together with the FuZioN V2 (available as an option) will perform far better. High end air would easily be able to beat the ThermalTake kit.

It would be cheaper in the long run to get a real WC kit from the beginning.
