^ well your cpu and mine arent too far off in performance so look at my sig.

i have a similar loop like that kit that aspire recomended but with a apogee self drive

Newegg.com - Swiftech MCR220-QP Liquid Cooler Radiator - Water Cooling $35 at newegg

Swiftech Apogee Drive 350 Self-Powered Waterblock: CrazyPC Computers $84

get some good tygon tubing or something similar and clamps and you will be good to go.

that's what i would do. will cool as good if not better than that kit from petras

The Danger Den CPX-Pro pump is nearly equal in performance to the MCP355 18W with a top.

In the end, the cpu block is better than the Apogee in the base of the Drive and the pump will outperform the 10w version of the DDC that is incorporated into the base.

/shrugs. In the end they will both cost nearly the same amount and the loop from Petras is much more upgradable.

Depending on your case and how you plan on setting up your loop, between 8 and 12 feet should be more than sufficient.

As long as you have them upgrade you to the MCR220, no, not worth it.

Hey Aspire, instead of making a dedicated W/C thread in hardware, we could just give you a new section under the revised recommended hardware list. That would make things simpler for the members to find stuff. We could just update the thread title to mention it.

Either way is fine by me, I do think it would be good to have it in this section in addition to any other places as this sub-forum is the "Cooling" section.

It's your call man. It was just an idea. Either way I am looking forward to the guide.
