T-Virus Res really worth it for me

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
i was considering on purchasing the T-virus Res, but want to know if it really is worth it, im in australia so postage alone was quoted at $70, and i also hear that these tend to leak and break easily.. and since this being a fairly large forum in regards to watercooling i thought i'd ask here..... has anyone heard read or even experienced and any troubles with these?

Mine cracked and leaked and the end caps are only for looks as they tend to slide up and down with the easiest of moving since they're not screwed down, glued, anything. Get something functional.

I think the issues have been resolved at this point that is if you are buying a new one direct from FrozenQ.

But is it worth it? If you like the looks so much that you are willing to pay the price then yeah. It adds no performance benefit by any means though it does look cool. There are a large chunk of people who water cool mostly for looks.

I now have the new version and it does not leak.

I think, in the end, if you ever travel to US or canada or have friend who is going, ask your friend to pick one up for you. don't think it's worth paying 200 or so for it to have it shipped to you
