How Much Will Good Water Cooling Cost Estimated?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hey,
I will be building another gaming rig soon but i am not considering getting water cooling, depending on the price but if not i will buy the H70

I just need help and how good the kit or parts will be and i also have a question.

If i bough a cheap water cooling setup, would it be more prone to leak then a high end setup, or will the thing that would change the most be the heat transfer and performance???

Thank you anybody in advanced

If your on budget I suggest the XSPC RASA water cooling kit. The prone to leakage is affected by how well you install it.

200$ for the xspc 360rx kit + a biocide and or different tubbing. And the likelihood that your loop will leak will be dependent on your ability to properly install everything correctly

The Rasa kit is good, but I wouldn't use it on more than 2 GPUs in a loop.

If it's CPU only, then you should be fine on a single 120 Rad. A Rasa 240 RX or RS will perform fine imo, but personally I would go with the RX in case you want to use it later on.

Otherwise a H70 would be fine up to about 4GHz, depending on ambients/seating you may struggle beyond that.

You also get the advantage of being able to your water cooling parts (except for the blocks) in the next system you build.

I can personally attest to how good the rasa 750 rx360 kit is. I had a 5.1GHZ overclock at 1.51v. Stable for 8 runs on max with 8 threads running on Intel Burn Test. Temps never exceeded 64C.

You'd be looking at around £140~ for a basic kit, like the RASA. I guess there is a difference between the cheaper fittings, and the more expensive ones, but not enough to create leaks depending on which you use.

Leaks are more due to the person who is putting it together, more than the parts themselves.
