The prices are not entry level. This is probably one of the most expensive AIO/CLC. Not everyone wants to build a custom loop for every PC even if it costs 15k.
It's a fair question, what's their warranty and policy for leaks?

Swiftech is out of their mind as always.
Unless I'm missing something that would be for the 360 version with every single extension

Well its a kit not an AIO and certainly not a CLC. If the fans and new rads are any good it isn't a bad deal at all really. Priced right in the middle of EK's Liquid and Performance kits.

Hi guys,

Yes, the Boreas Series is NOT an AIO/CLC. It is a Do-it-yourself kit, warranty on individual components vary from 2 to 3 years as it's always been with us.

And yes, the first drop down on the configurator is the radiator size (also the number of fans included), and single means the smaller radiator (Hydrae 120GT specifically) and we also offer dual and triple.




any question let me know, I'll try to keep an eye of this thread in case there is any question; and I'm also present on our discord.

cheers,

Any chance at a 420/480 rad?

Yeah OK so it's not a prebuilt prefilled then, my mistake. Why on earth would anyone buy a kit when they can choose individual parts then that fit their needs, desires and hardware, maybe this "kit" fits someones but it seems rather limiting considering how many custom cooling options there are.
Their webpage certainly isn't the cleanest to understand. DIY KIT for me means a kit that is prefilled with quick disconnect hoses, so anyone even a complete newbie can buy a kit and parts from the series and connect it at home without having to bother with fluids.

DIY Kit means buy parts and do it yourself not a closed loop, These kind of DIY kits are becoming more and more popular example look here: http://www.performance-pcs.com/complete-kits
These style of kits are for those who want a loop but not 100% sure what to buy or for newbies like me who want something already package for there first time trying to do watercooling, a lot of people do not know what they are looking for at first even with help from websites and talking to people so it makes it easier to just buy a kit like these, which if you get the right one you could always expand in the future.

I have a similar kit, EK L360. It does a great job with my 5820k and 1070, and it has worked well for a couple years now. It's pretty mind boggling initially to figure what all matches what to do a loop for the first time, these kits make it pretty simple. I also got a EK water block for my 1070. Now that I have built a couple loops I wouldn't have any issues getting all the right parts. I also think in the EK case it works out cheaper to get it all together, than seperately.


On that note once you get the larger radiator and compression fitting options, this seems to work out more expensive than the EK L360 kit by a good bit. Are any of the main components (CPU block, radiator, pump) that much better?
