Hi , i want your opinion on which one i should get, yes i know you guys will be like get real water cooling i will in a couple a years ok, anyways which is better , the thermaltake water 2.0 extreme or should i get the corsair h100? Right now im leaning torwards te h100 because of great customer service plus they cover the part for 5 years while thermaltake only covers it for 3 years and i wanted a second opinoin on these two
Also The thermaltake also has a 38 mm thick while the other only has 27mm in thickness how muc better is the thermaltake one?

Noctua NH-D14 is much better than both of those, it's cheaper and MUCH quieter. If you want watercooling, go custom.

You want to avoid anything that is Thermaltake watercooling.

Sounds like you want the H100... unfortunately.

I'd pick none of the above...better off going with a good air cooler. If you're going to spend $100+, you're far better off with an entry level WC kit.

Thing is im more afraid of custom water cooling kits right now

June 20, 2012 4:52:26 AM

Why is that? I'd trust anything I'd assemble and fill vs. anything that comes pre-assembled in a box or has Thermaltake written on it that's watercooling...any time, any place, any day.
June 20, 2012 5:00:36 AM

Well im not going thermaltake, but im just afraid that it will leak, and yes ik anything can leak

Good watercooling done right, doesn't leak.

There are reasons we inspect components, buy good gear and test our loops before flipping the power switch on.

I'd be far more fearful of a Corsair, Antec, Zalman, Thermaltake or Larkooler liquid cooler.

Lol no, I just keep strange hours compared to a lot of folks on here, I'm UK-based but work nightshifts, and I'm often on Toms on the mobile/netbook when I am at work
I do however think about modding and W/c rather a lot,
as Rubix said the sticky can always be improved, I believe most things can, and I try to find ways to do it :)

@ giby - settle for a good air cooler until the wallets gives you the "okay" nod for a watercooling setup :)  hyper 212 evo
June 20, 2012 8:57:30 PM

The thing is i don"t like the air coolers because they just take up way to much space
June 20, 2012 9:00:58 PM

I mean i could alwalys go for a water cooling kit right? But ik those are entry level if im correct?

My loop started as a kit, and its not the worst performing on Toms :-)

June 20, 2012 9:16:39 PM

Does it come with instructions?
June 20, 2012 9:20:31 PM

XSPx or Swiftec?
a c 190 K Overclocking
June 20, 2012 9:22:08 PM

Nope, but you don't need any, anything you aren't sure of post a pic/question and we'll sort you out, it really is easy though,
The one thing I'd remind you of is to measure tubing carefully before cutting :-)
*edit, thats the Xspc ones, I'm unsure if Swifties have instructions sorry
Moto
June 20, 2012 9:27:46 PM

U here 24/7 or no? Or can u add me in steam or sumthing for whenever i do it cuz im only 16 need to find a job first and ill take this kit into consideration
June 20, 2012 9:30:42 PM

xspc has better rads than swiftech imo but if youre getting a kit just go xspc. swiftech is good dont get me wrong but they dont focus on kits really. xspc is pretty well known for the Rasa kit (know about 3 guys who used that kit as a starter platform) and they make great blocks (raystorm) as well as rads that are used in high performance systems(RX120-360). why would you get a kit when its literally just parts thrown together as a "package" they dont come with instructions, its really just a bundle of parts.

I'm on here a lot, not quite 24/7 hehe, but yes, any questions you have we can pick up quite quickly,
You know the parts and what each is for, the only real thing to brain over is getting the flow order right,
Start at the pump output and work round, its not as hard as it may seem
Moto
June 20, 2012 9:45:27 PM

Yea..... About knowing the parts lol i have to research more on that
June 20, 2012 10:05:41 PM

Wait watercooling for me would just be for me and not for my cou cause i really won"t be pushing any further than 4Ghz so i really don"t need it but it would be cool to do but maybe when it gets simpler lol
a c 190 K Overclocking
June 20, 2012 10:22:25 PM

It doesn't get much simpler hehe, pump, block, radiator, tubing between, and usually a reservoir,
Read the sticky, google blocks and rads until you feel more comfortable, and the wallets a little fatter :-)

Oh one more question, since i am buying the H100 ik ik its mediocre but any better fans than the ones it comes with? Preferably with around the sane CFM 92(max speed stock fans) but with better static pressure
a c 190 K Overclocking
June 20, 2012 11:07:43 PM

One of the most popular mods with them is to swap the fans out, check the fan roundup list in Cpu section for some comparisons
Moto
June 20, 2012 11:36:05 PM

Technically i don"t think swaping out the fans is a MOD IMO
a c 76 K Overclocking
June 20, 2012 11:47:12 PM

it is. :)  so $100+ on the unit and another $50 on getting fans to go with teh rig - nice - pretty nice setup for a pseudo watercooler.

I mentioned $50 cos of getting 4 fans to run in tandem - push+pull scenario. swiftech helix and shipping and handling charge. best now to go that $200 and pick up the XSPC rasa 240 kit pronto.
June 21, 2012 12:08:24 AM

I can"t push pull lol i don"t have the clearance anyways , and y should i push pull temps would only increase by 1-2c at most cuase the pump sucks @$$

PS: im still scared of building the water loop

rubix - i liked that scion pic so much that i decided to copy it to my album, show my lil bro your ride and maybe mention your mods on it :p , if you don't mind me doing so...i could still remove if I've offended you.

probably not, i have a H100 that is actually a modded H50(+ two rads)...brilliant waste of money if anything :??:
