Choice of WCing Kit

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ok so here's the scoop:

My loving gf wants to buy me WCing stuff for my bday, but I don't wanna go giving her a list of parts and her not end up with the right stuff or just get all frustrated. Plus, she wants something around the 200ish price range, and adding up all the stuff I would buy separately it would come out to more in the 300ish range. So *for now*, I have decided to just give her one thing to get and that's a WCing kit. Now I know I have heard both good and bad about buying a kit, especially from companies that aren't as good as others, but I figure there are probably some decent ones out there (still better than air cooling) that could be had for around the 200ish price range. My question is what would you recommend and why?

Now, I would like to skip all the brand wars and fanboy garbage and get straight down to business. What's the best cooling bang for the buck? I am currently running socket 775 but would like something that either already comes with backplates or mounts for 1366/1156/1155, or is easily upgradeable to a different socket. In addition, not only do I want the best bang for the buck now, but also something that can handle upgrades and changes fairly easily as well, if I want to add on to it later.

So fire away, all suggestions welcome but please back up your opinions/suggestions with good fact about what you are suggesting and why. Thanks in advance for all the help!

The RASA 750 RX 360 kit will by far be the best value for you on a budget and you can always buy resell parts in the future. That is if you can fit a thick 360 rad in your case that is if you ever want to add a gfx card if you dont want to add a card in the future then the RX 240 is your best bet. RASA kits perform very well and come with just about everything you will need.

Link to the club here (http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...-rs-rx120.html). Has all the info you need to know about the kit where to buy coupons etc....

P.S. you have an awesom GF mine wants to destroy my pc cause its cooler than hers lulz
