I can't find it anywhere for a reasonable price. Newegg.com now has it deactivated. Zipzoomfly is out of stock. Amazon do not have any in stock yet. Where can I get one?

Buy a real WC rig and be happy.

Ugh, skip on that cooler and get a real setup.
Either look at This WC Kit or get a Good Air Cooler (or This One).
IMO, that Corsair kit will have a hard time cooling better than a good air cooler.

I bought one from this seller 2 weeks ago and it is a sealed, retail package. I did notice that he has bumped the price up considerably, probably because they are hard to find (I paid $79 + shipping).


You see that's the problem. I don't want to pay $100 when it can be had for as low as $70. I have been interested in this product as soon as it came out but have been holding off until reviews came out. Now that everyone has verified how good this product is, it is impossible to find at a reasonable price.

Rags? What are you going to cool with that H50? A guy has one and his i7 loads in the 80's. He's buying a real WC setup now.

My i7 965 stock at 82F room temp loads at less than 60.

I have an E8400 core 2 Duo. Check out my member configuration for the rest of the specs.

In my opinion this was the worst review ever. They didn't try using the same fan on all the parts which made the review fallacious. There a lot of reviews out there that justifies the cost of this cooler including,

Show me a review that says it is not worth the price of the cooler and I will change my mind.

+1

You can't deny it's a very good cooling solution for this price... Especially for ppl with mid-tower cases.

lol, true. But, I still wouldn't get it. Like Conumdrum said. Don't expect this to be a HUGE improvement over air.

I am not expecting miracles. What I am expecting is more room in my case. I have a Coolermaster cosmos 1000 case but because of all the components I have in it, including my Coolermaster Z600 Black edition, I still don't have a lot of room to get my hands in there to change components or even be able to get ram with high heat spreaders.

I have dealt with all three. Performance-PCS you can get it sent by USPS Priority 3 day mail. The other 2 sites use UPS 5-DAY ground and costs as much as Performance-PCS 3-day.

Thanks again. I guess I will decide between NCIXUS and the more well known Performance-PCs.

Well, I don't understand... some air coolers are better, cost less and are easier to work with.

I have tried water cooling (Thermaltake Big Water) in the pass and I think it's more a toy than anything relevant. With heat pipe HS, I really doubt you need water cooling.

Still, it's another thing with gpu cooling, but for cpu it's more an hassle to take care of. You need coolant and a lot of maintenance if you don't want to damage your stuff.

You obviously haven't read any of the reviews because this coolers does not require any maintenance what-so ever.

^Right, until it leaks slowly and evaporates all the coolant out of it around a fitting that is 'factory sealed'. Yeah, I trust everything that comes in a pretty box and that the manufacturer tells me is 'extreme' and 'easy'.

As I was going to Ncixus website to make the purchase I decided to check Newegg one last time and lo and behold they have it back in stock. I couldn't believe it! Thanks to everyone who helped me. I felt a lot more comfortable buying it from newegg, a company that has never given me any problems.

^Just make sure you let us know how it goes (as in install/performance) :D 
August 3, 2009 6:29:42 PM

Sure will.
August 3, 2009 9:01:57 PM

I think that we need another "easy to install" or "instant" water-cooling kit" to come out for Da Masses.....

See: PT Barnum's most famous statement.

Newegg got the cooler to me in one day. They never fail to impress me. On to the installation. I was able to install it yesterday. The installation for me was actually pretty difficult. It took me longer than I thought it would take me. I feel like they could of done something better for the installation of the fan and radiator to the back of the computer. I was not able to tighten it all the way because not only did I have to use two screws to be able to mount two fans (two screws for each fan) but the screws kinda stripped on the radiator. I mean it was tight but it kept turning. I am going to contact corsair today to see if they can send me 4 more screws. Also the pump/water block was also a pain to install. You need to have the mounting bracket as loose as it can be without it being detached to the base plate before you are able to correctly attach it. Anyway on to the performance. I can safely say that the trouble I had installing the cooler was worth it in the end. My idle temps dropped around 5 degrees Celsius and my load temps using prime dropped around 10 degrees Celsius. Also, not only does my case looks better with less clutter but even my NB temps dropped because now I have more room to put my antec spot cool fan closer to my NB. Oh, by the way I have the cooler configured using two antec tri-cool led fans (medium speed) blowing into the case and no my ambient temperature inside the case is not hotter.

Only a 10C drop? What were your air temps?
August 6, 2009 5:03:52 PM

Well my e8400 at 3.6Ghz I was getting around 55-58 prime 95 load with my Coolermaster Z600 black label. Now I getting around 45-47 load. Also if you consider that I'm using AS5 thermal paste I should be getting better temps in a week or two.

Edit: Ambient air is around 25-27 degrees Celsius.
