Watercooling Kits

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all, first time poster, long time reader here. Trying to take the plunge on water... and (as all first-timers) i have a few questions...

so here goes:
1. anyone have much experience buying from aquatuning.de (i live in Europe) and how reliable and punctual they are on ETAs & deliveries? i've ordered the XSPC RS360 Rasa Kit but its ETA date seems to be changing on their site (and their sales-person gave me a vague answer on that) so Im wondering whether they are reliable?
2. If they cannot provide the (awesome value for money) Rasa Kit, anyone here has had experience with the EK H3O 360 Kit http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/ki...me-hf-360.html or the particular components that make up the kit and how good it is performance wise? just in case i need an alternative... i see there is a lot of info on the Rasa Kit but very little info on the EK Kit.
3. If someone has had experience from the EK H3O kits http://www.ekwaterblocks.com/shop/ki...me-hf-360.html or the particular components that make up the kit, are there any problems associated with them or is some particular part of theirs in particular lacking in reliability or quality?

My intent is to initially watercool my CPU (i7 920 D0) and later on my GPU (gtx 260), the purpose of the WC being silence (as i understand i would have to undervolt the fans if i were to get the EK H3O) but later on i would like to try out OCing both parts.

Thanking you in advance

ek makes some great stuff
their kit is a decent kit except for I dont really like the dcp pump
they have been around for along time now but the 355 or the 655 are my choices in pump
for a alternate kit its not bad I dont know whats available to you over there but as far as overall, the ek system isnt bad. the pump thing is my personal opinion and to each their own. it would probably do you fine for a few years
