Hey all, I've been considering getting into water cooling but dnt know a whole lot about it. In NZ the choices are very very limited and fairly expensive. I have no clue if these parts are decent or not so your input would be appreciated. Im looking at complete kits as I dont know what does and doesn't work together and not confident enough to buy. Water cooling advice is in short supply in NZ although Computerlounge has some experience.
Option 1Get this kit
from NZ. Prices NZ dollars.
Get this XSPC RS240
kit from the US (FrozenCPU). What extras do I need to add?
Even with exchange rate, taxes etc should still be significantly cheaper than the NZ one. Probably $350 NZD.
your input appreciated. If there are better kits than either of these then send me your suggestions. Im in NZ so Newegg not an option. FrozenCPU are an option although the Freight and taxes etc will more than double it.
At this stage looking for something to cool the CPU and maybe expandable to other parts in the future. I figure a 240 rad plenty at the moment.
