h50 or cheap watercooling loop

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
i was planning on buying a h50 and 2 gentle typhoones which is around 85 for the x6 1090t i just bought but have seen i could make a watercooling loop for around 100 will there be alot of difference in a kit or a custom loop for the amount i would be paying extra as i would be overclocking the core as much as i can

Assuming it's your first loop, the h50 is much safer as it is completely sealed and never needs refilling. Also, I can comfortably say that set up will be a lot more painless with the h50. You may see slightly better performance with a custom loop, though.

$100? Not a chance... it will be roughly $200 just to cool your CPU with a custom loop.

harrumph! you can get the xspc rasa rs240 kit for around 150 shipped with everything you need with the exception of distilled water(under a buck at grocery store) and a kill coil(about 7 bucks at FCPU)

There's alot of expansion you can do like adding video card blocks or motherboard blocks with the rasa kit, and it has all the necessary hardware for a cpu loop already included

XSPC Rasa club members to the rescue.

Yes, buy the XSPC rasa kit if you want a custom loop but for cheap.

plus it performs like nobodys business.

My chip maxes at 43c at 4ghz.
