Seems pricey to me. Go to overclockers.com and you will find plenty of links dedicated to cooling.

I think about $200 max is about all you need to pay for a good system.

Looks like a good water cooling kit but like bullish says it's a lil pricey.

It does look good but I would also say it is a little to high of a price you can find them for a cheaper price.:eek:

Crazyyyyy price, you don't need all that BS. Just buy a waterblock from some online store for like $40 US, and you can buy the rest @ local stores.

I don't think the price is crazy.... I think those are quality products included in the kit. Also, the first thing he said was that he didn't want to build one himself... ;) I've never been able to find a peltier a store around here, let alone a potted peltier, if i would it would probably cost around 60$CDN...(86 watts).

Heh, anyways, I think that's a great kit...

you could buy most the stuff locally but where would you get a spiffy reservoirs like kits have, especially the one from overclockershideout.

im more into casemodding then overclocking, im kind of vain i guess. usually i frown upon kits but watercooling kits and baybus kits are dont have a problem with, not everyone can reproduce some of the more professional kits. not like something simple as putting in a window.

1.85v works great for me on my 1.4T-bird air cooled with the 8000rpm 51cfm fan, pushes all the heat right off the heatsink

Omg, you have the assemble the kit yourself when you get it you know?? You can buy the other parts from local stores, it'll be no different than ordering the kit. You can get radiator for like $50, a fishtank pump for $20, use some small plasic garbage can as the resevoir.

Thats a really crappy small waterblock too, check this one out: http://www.dangerden.com/test/mall/maze2.asp

Only $42 US!

Heres a summary:
Block: $42 US ($67 CAD)
Radiator: ~$50 CAD
Pump: ~$20 CAD
Garbage can + tubing: ~$15 CAD

That comes out to around $152 CAD, compared to $300?!!??

If you REALLY want a peltier, slap one on for about $30 US, but its pretty useless for current AMD CPUs cuz itz not the temp that is holding them back, its the voltage.

but do ya know where i can find a good tutorial on how to assemble it all?
overclockers.com has 1 _good_ one, but its if your doing everything yourself from scratch (not my case)
