Getting Started

Hey guys, im looking into building a watercooling system. Iv read a bit on how it works and i have the basics of building a loop, but i cant seem to find websites that review waterblocks so i can make my choice.

What im loooking for is an AM3 block and a 570 block.

Thanks

  6. I have the EK-KIT H3O Supreme HF 360 kit and I heartily recommend it. Excellent quality and great instructions really helped out a first-time water cooling guy like me. It was expensive, but certainly worth it.

    I understand, so the LTX is the old version that only supported Intel. The HF is the new version which also supports AMD.

    Id rather build it myself :)
  8. I picked up this little gem: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=59_971_498_490&products_id=27631

    all the benefits of the full copper version without any of the oxidation potential (the block is coated inside and out), plus it's pretty cool to say that your waterblock is gold.
  9. Looks like OP wants to do a custom kit starting out...good choice. Doing your homework will only make the process easier for you in the long run. Looks like the guys here are taking good care of you...they all have very good info to provide.
