Normally kits suck, but you can't beat the components in this kit at this price... I wish this was around when I bought all my gear... :ph34r:

I'm sure if you buy the parts to the kit you get the same price as the "sale" lol.

Depends what your current cooling is. WATER FTW!

right now i'm on air...thermaltake ruby orb [email protected] averaging between 45 and 65c idle/loaded....i've been considering wc but found it takes quite a commitment to make the jump...$$$....so i was just wondering if's worth it...??

VERY worth it. I never had air on my quad, but I know I wouldn't be getting the clocks I am getting with those temps. Atm I'm on my Q9450 at 3.5 at 1.352 with 50% load and my junky stock fans. 43-41-41-34 are my temps atm. 4th core weird lol. Also, on my Q6700 at stock idle I got high 20 to low 30. Not bad for where I live (like 30 outside atm).

ok so if i read you right then i could expect around a 10 -20 degree temp drop...?? is that about right for this cooling system.....??

Depends on the CPU, mine got a nice drop, but I wont guarantee anything for yours. You should expect around 30-40 idle and around 45-55 load.

and that's just about good enough to justify the expenditure...l33t p1mp thanx for the pull up mang...i think i'm gonna try this or something like it...!!..i run 2 3870x2s so i presume i'll be able to do something with those once the ram and proc get straightened out....

Np man. Don't buy this one though, you don't really need to blow the extra money on the chipset blocks (my chipset is on air and running just fine). And yeah, you can WC those 3870, dont wc the ram though, all you need is a decent fan pointed in it's general direction.

If you can find a setup for cheaper, with all new GOOD components like this one, all the clamps, tubing and all the blocks, everything, I want a link... but I don't see you finding it anywhere.

The 655 alone is $75 new, plus the Apogee GT: $50, MCW30: $30, MCW 60 GPU block: $64, Radiator: $50...

 

 

That's $269 without the Res, Clamps, Tubing, Additive, Radbox, Fans... Try piecing it together from different sites and you add shipping at each of them and you're over $300 without thinking about it.

 

If you don't need the chipset block (and you really don't for normal use), sell it, and you get your kit even cheaper.

 

So... cjloki, I bet you'd find a lot of people that would recommend this kit, especially with it being all quality components... don't get thrown off by people harping on a kit just because it's a kit...

I'm not saying it's bad because it's a kit, my loop is a kit (partially now since I replaced the res with a t) since it was such a good deal.

 

Edit: It IS cheaper after all, the mcp 655 is 35 bucks over at petra's.
