Watercooling to CPU - LarKooler or EF (OR FROM TECHBAY?)

Hi guys!

Im thinking about buying watercooling only for my CPU first. Maybe for the graphic card later :)

So I'm not sure what to buy. I have found several watercooling kits you guys may want to look at:

Larkooler Extreme Performance Complete Kit (KU3-241) ( http://www.aquatuning.no/product_info.php/language/en/info/p11905_Larkooler-Extreme-Performance-Complete-Kit--KU3-241-.html )


EK Water Blocks EK-KIT H3O 240 LTX ( http://www.aquatuning.no/product_info.php/language/en/info/p13063_EK-Water-Blocks-EK-KIT-H3O-240-LTX.html )
Or the more expensive version:
EK Water Blocks EK-KIT H3O 240 HFX ( http://www.aquatuning.no/product_info.php/language/en/info/p13065_EK-Water-Blocks-EK-KIT-H3O-240-HFX.html )

Larkooler Universal High Performance Advanced Kit CPU/GPU ( http://www.aquatuning.no/product_info.php/language/en/info/p11904_Larkooler-Universal-High-Performance-Advanced-Kit-CPU-GPU--BA2-243-.html )

OR this one (translated from norwegian to english using google translate):

Sorry for the long url's but hope it's fine.

What do you guys think of those above? Which one should I choose to cool my IB 3570K and place in (maybe) a Corsair Carbide 500R.

Thanks in advance! :)

  1. No to anything Larkooler.

    The others on that list are good choices- the TechBay kit looks like a rebranded EK kit.
  2. Thanks for answer!

    Okay so no larkooler! :D


    So the one fron techbay is EK rebranded? So the same as the EF from autotuning?

    I also found this from techbay: http://translate.google.no/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&layout=2&eotf=1&u=http%3A%2F%2Ftechbay.no%2Fproduct.html%2Ftechbay-supersilent-vannkjolingsett-2x120-30%3Fcategory_id%3D84
    Suppose to be a quite one.. But its so cheap, what do you think?

    Those I have linked to, which one should I buy?


    EDIT: I mean EK in thread title xD if any mod see this pleace change to EK!
  3. Any XSPC kits?
  4. Can't see any with XSPC in stock :/
    Norwegian sites..

    So which one should I go for?

    This:

    and this:

    http://www.aquatuning.no/product_info.php/language/en/info/p13063_EK-Water-Blocks-EK-KIT-H3O-240-LTX.html

    Look almost identical except for the radiator, which the EK kit has a thicker rad. Even the TechBay kit states they are using EK gear.
  6. The one from Techbay is £42 more expensive then the one from autotuning, so if they are most identical maybe I'll go for the cheapest one from EK (autotuning)?
  7. That would be my choice as well- it's a thick EK rad vs. the other being a thin (never heard of that brand before) radiator.
