Default Liquid Cooling System

What do you guys think of this? Not a bad price I don't think I have heard good and bad about liquid cooling. I was thinking about going with it because I game a lot. Any ideas?

That's pretty cheap for watercooling. It's just a CPU loop, but if it is better than high-end air cooling in a comparison, then maybe the extra $20-30 is justified.

ThermalTake Big Water 760i Liquid Cooling System Kit CL-W0121 at TigerDirect.com
Would this one be a better choice? Is there a big difference between the 2?

I see no problem but most people advise against it.

IMO and many others, this is the best bang for you buck kit. The pump is plenty strong enough to run a GPU in the loop as well.

Swiftech H20-220-APEX ULTRA CPU Liquid Cooling Kit w/ Apogee GT

A number of venders carry it, this was just one of the first I saw it on for a decent price.

IMO if its just gaming your going to be doing it is not worth a water cooling kit a decent HSF ( like a true ) would honestly cool it just the same (some times better) and free up that bit of cash to put into a better part

and to be honest i wouldn't cheep out on a water cooling loop, water + cheep components + pc hardware = bad thing's are bound to happen

The Pump is loud



only got a "Great" (6-7) from 3dGameMan (and his best ratings are kick-"butt" and 100% Kick-"butt") but a pro is that its already assembled.. also avoid Thermaltake Water Cooling ask aspire he'll tell you...

That Swiftec is the only one worth looking at

The Cooler master system is garbage

The Thermaltake is garbage

The Switech is the best one mentioned so far, but the cpu block is not designed to cool quad or dual core cpu's. As such it won't give the best performance.

As previously stated water cooling is an investment. It will last a long time and is not something you should skimp on.

Would you run your pc on a 250W Sparkle Power Supply?
