Best closed loop water Cooler for under $150???

Topic, the cooler master hyper 212 EVO. I don't know I'm just having bad temps from it even without OC.
Just going to water cooling for the best cooling.
Needs to come with all the stuff to get set up and be closed loop cuz it's safer I've heard.

  1. My favored closed-loop cooler (and the one I chose for my current build) is the NZXT Kraken x60. Some of the best cooling performance possible without a custom loop. However, the downside is that it uses a dual 140mm radiator which fits on a relatively small number of cases. What case do you have?
  2. H sorry forgt to mention I have the cooler master haf 912 case (my build is in my sig). :)

    No worries. The Haf 912 cannot fit the Kraken x60, unfortunately. What is your radiator capacity? Knowing that will help in the selection process quite a bit.
  4. Here's from the cooler master site

    What is the best way to water‐cool in the HAF 912?
    There are two ways to water‐cool the HAF 912. While a 240mm radiator can be supported inside the chassis, there may be compatibility issues depending on the motherboard component height and radiator and fan thickness. For best compatibility there are additional mounting holes for a 240mm radiator to be installed above the chassis. There is also a separate hole for radiator cables. This offers best water cooling support in its mid‐tower class.

    That being the case, either the Kraken x40 or the Thermaltake Water 2.0 (both reviewed in this article: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/water2.0-extreme-kraken-x40-hydro-h90-elc120,3434-15.html) would be good options.
  6. Yeah the thermal take water 2.0 pro looks great!
    Thanks
