Cost shouldn't be the 1st reason to get into water cooling, it can get expensive really quickly.

But it is worth way more then that and the benefits are much greater than any air cooling solution


not really sure what you need help with though? you just want us to convince you that you are doing the right thing?

The cheapest watercooling (that works) costs the same as the most expensive air coolers.

You can do a hell of a lot on air imo and to put it lightly, my compression fittings alone, cost like £40-50

Are you ready for the addiction?!

I can see why you would like to move over to water cooling, it's cooler and quieter than most air coolers. The only downside would be cost as proven above compression fittings will cost you £40 - £50.
The addiction is also pretty annoying, the mad crave to get better and better cooling, it can cost an absolute fortune.

You could also look into a cheap and effective air cooling, the Coolermaster hyper 212 with 2 fans in push/pull is very good.

You are just starting and trust me its not easy to say you'll start with water cooling. Honestly if I would start I would save for 200$ not being exaggerated but there will be many things coming on your way.

Will you have space to mount it? it will require a two 140mm fan bay space. Other than that it will depend on what speed you want to run your fans. Generally speaking the black ice GTX's are better at higher fan speeds, though I'm not too sure about at the 140mm size. Here is a comparison graph from Skinnee labs:


Here you can really see the GTX360 doing well past the 1600rpm range.

the rasa kit is the best way to get started for sure
the cpu block is one of the best out right now

if your plan is to only cool the cpu the 128.00 kit from
www.sidewindercomputers.com is a great deal

if you want to expand later to the gpu's I would go on and spend the extra 22.00 and get the 360mm rad version
