Pump- God

Rad - Good

CPU Block - Average

Coolant (Feser stuff) - Cr@p. ALWAYS run Distilled + PTNuke/Killcoils.

Tubing - Good

Overall, good kit esp. for the price and except for the coolant, it's a good choice for a Phenom II.

If you get the D5, get the micro res top for it makes it much easier to use than a T line imo.

As for basic questions like filling the loop,etc read Conumdrum's guide on this section.

As for case, I have no idea. Possible modding may be needed.

TDX block...eh, it's decent, but I went from the TDX to the D-tek v2 and saw a decent improvement in temps. Either way, its not a horrible block (the multicore version is better than the outdated, single core block it replaced ) but I am not impressed with the barbs they included from DD. I would check into some Fatboys or some high-flow barbs.

Hmm, the link at the top has so many resources and forums, guides etc. I'm sure one of them talks about liquid.

It took me THREE MONTHS of learning before I bought my first watercooling part.

Distilled water and a Petras ianh silver killcoil, or a teeny bottle of Petras PHN Nuke is all a modern loop needs.

Building a loop?

Under $250? Buy this. Basic, great parts.

That DD kit is outdated and doesn't have enuff rad to keep your CPU cool.

You want to start cooling GPUs too? Thgen you'll need MUCH more rad, and each watercooled GPU will set you back $80 minimum. Not taking into account you might need TWO fully seperate loops meaning TWO pumps etc etc.

Like this: Easily over $700 in watercooling parts.

Yes, all you need for a CPU loop. Your running an AMD, so you might need to order the free backplate for the CPU block.

Yes it's upgradable. The rad is quality as is the pump. You start adding lots more stuff you might need more/better pumps, more rads etc. It's a great beginning.
