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/i... )


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

Larkooler Universal High Performance Advanced Kit CPU/GPU ( http://www.aquatuning.no/product_info.php/language/en/i... )

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! :)

No to anything Larkooler.

The others on that list are good choices- the TechBay kit looks like a rebranded EK kit.

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...
Suppose to be a quite one.. But its so cheap, what do you think?

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

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.

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)?

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.
