It's not a matter of there being a difference, it's all a little things rolled into one. You have to get the right hose sizes, make sure everything fits, have it connected right, have to get all the correct stuff, etc... If you are a newbie at water cooling, get a kit which has everything all ready to go and everything is compatible and whatnot. It's just easier, which is good for the average n00b.

Gaara, perhaps you werent the average n00b.

It's not as difficult as you're making it out to be, matching fitting and tube sizes isn't rocket science, and as I say, assembling a thermaltake bigwater isn't any different from assembling a TDX block with some tygon and an MCP650.

those are terrible reasons lol.......like gaara said you're making it sound a lot worse than it is.......I know from experience from making the mistake of getting a kit the first time around....it's all the same crap.......plus theres atleast 3 of us who know enough about water cooling plus the extensive guide from XS at the top of this page that's sticked.
