But people who know that accept it. There is no truely accurate temperatures. The best way is to get a temperature probe and stick it inbetween the heatsink and the CPU (in the corner) and add 5*C or so to that.

Anyway this thread is dead now. Next?

@ nitestick if i went with getting the h20 220 would i be able to change the cpu block to sumthing better easily? Would it be easier just to buy all the parts myself to put together?

Thanks

The shipping is good. We really get ripped off for individual components of watercooling.

www.x-rates.co.uk there is a calculator there to convert GBP from euro's.

I don't know the price of shipping. A friend buys from there and says they are cheaper by a long shot including the shipping.
