Monarch's pretty good to order from, I've bought from them a few times. I'm debating getting this, seems like an awesome deal!

There site seems to be a little low on the customer support, but I have bought from them numerous times without any problems. I'd pay by a credit card, so you have the option to file a chargeback if there are any problems.

I'd put my money on the Bigwater, bigger 3/8" tubing, dual radiator + single, and better pump than before.

Edit: I think monarch is liquidating a bundle of items, because they are going to enter the custom PC market, and drop the components part of their store.

My post above says it all, I think monarch is liquidating a bundle of items, because they are going to enter the custom PC market, and drop the components part of their store.

Edit: @ toad, paypal is fine, I just bought 2 lian-li's off their site using Paypal.

How's the bigwater connect to k8?, I want to know if it'll use the bracket already on my motherboard or what? I removed the IHS so need to know what I'm to expect if I were to get this.

You probably have to remove the retention bracket where the old HS/F went, not that big of a deal. It connects by a bracket that it tightened by screws, works quite well I might add.

lol sorry todd, just looks like toad.

Are you buying one??
My mom won't let me use her credit card to buy stuff online anymore...too much stuff from newegg
So I'm going to buy one of those $100 gift credit cards tomorrow and buy this setup.

Yea I had the bracket off but my blue orb 2 tightened the whole way was loose on the core. I'm not sure if I want to buy this or not, its such a great deal but I could probably be fine with the blue orb 2 as soon as I get it on this thing right- I also have a 130cfm fan coming to try and fit to it.

Ahh. I used my mom's SS number to do the Bill Me Later thing on NewEgg. She was pretty mad at that, so I had to sell my laptop I just bought to pay it off. I didn't pay it off yet, that is why i'm buying this right now.

Should I buy two of them???

Anyone know how much they are going for on eBay???

I think it won't be as great as your Tuniq Tower.

Great find! Great kit for someone to start watercooling.

DO NOT ever ever ever buy a big water.. the only thing a big water will teach you is how not to WC. don't mean to be negitive.. but the pump, barbs, the tubing in the rad's everything sucks...

I have on including and extra TT bay mount rad and the 2 5.25 bay drive mount rez/flow monitor and in about a week I'm taking my AK-47 out in the desert and killing it.... I will post vid's ...this thing is junk... if you can't pay for a real WC kit just buy a part now and another later you will be glad you did... I am

PS sig is way out of date

Worth buying for $65 and selling (cheap) for $100? I've had zero problems with my tidewater :/
