A 300 dollar CPU for 200 dollar price tag? Obvious answer, yes.

It's a cheaper rip off of the D14. For the price, you can get an H80 which would be better.

It's a sealed loop that can't leak unless you do something extremely dumb like bend the pipes till they bust. And even that is hard (I've tried). Your motherboard has more of a chance of warping from weight strain than that loop can leak.

if i got a water cooled system i think i would want to upgrade the radiator. the case can support up to a 360 mm rad and if i plan on water cooling more components later on what rad would you suggest. or should i just stick with the h80 or h100 until i feel the need to upgrade the gpu?

To be quite honest, you don't need any of it unless you plan to OC. The H80 would be a nice cooler to keep your CPU cool without a ton of noise from the stock fan. Then again, so would a Hyper 212. The Hydro series is a closed sealed loop so no upgrading of the parts, leak testing, or air bubbles. Just mount and go. I just suggested the H80 because I feel massive chunks of metal aren't needed anymore.

Just to give you an idea, this is a thread i created a while back when i got my H100.

I was at 4.8ghz (I5 2500K) with average temps of 62-63 (using Prime95).

H100 temps, I5 2500k.
