I prefer getting it from Amazon as it would ultimately be cheaper for me. I have over $100 in store credit that I wanted to use toward a high end cooling solution. Another Solution I am considering Is the Alphacool Eisbaer Extreme 280. It’s essentially a preassembled custom water cooling loop with 280rad, reservoir and Alphacool’s D5 pump equivalent. It’s a bit more expensive, but also should be higher performance and opens the door for expanding to watercooling the videocard in the future
Yep I looked at that one as well.
It would work well and looked to have a better, proper mounting mechanism anyway.
They make pricey watercooling kit yes, so you could expand it with time. Need blocks for GPUs, D5 pump/res combo, bunch of fittings, tubing and another rad probably. They make a 360mm version of the Eisbaer as well so I was looking at that. Someone said they were only at 45c load on a highly OC'ed Ryzen 3900X as well in a review, if I remember.
If you could find the 360mm Eisbaer https://www.amazon.com/Alphacool-Eis...1998680&sr=8-1
and get that shipped I'd totally do it, it will work great but has ugly old school tubing lol
