Please list good water cooling kits under 75 dollars. Only list things that are better than cooler master hyper 212 evo.

Thanks!

For under $75.00? You're not going to get better than the 212 in my opinion. Even the air coolers that are better are going to run you in that price range.

For $75 you aren't watercooling,
decent kits start at around $140 with XSPC's Rs series kits
And don't bother with H100/Antec Kuhler level stuff as aircoolers can beat the performance and make less noise

I just have to say this Moto. I love that sig! It speaks so much truth that it almost could make a sinner go to confession! Water cooling can also become addictive I've learned.. Once you create your own loop, you want to add to those GPU's, and then you start looking at your north bridge even if you don't put any extra clock onto it. LOL My first experience was a system me and a few friends dropped onto a Celeron 667? We got it to 1Ghz! Though it wasn't worth the I think $300 we spent on building that cooling loop.

It was worth the learning curve, not everything of value can be measured in money terms hehe
Thank you for the Siglove, I said it so often that Ryan and Rubix suggested I sigged it, and after a few years and many changed sigs (I'm full of wisdom lol),
I still use this one more than the others I use :) 
on the front of nice clocks though, my 975 is usable at 4.6GHz, a full GHz clock :p 
Working on tweaking my cooling for 24/7 use atm

Looks like this one is already covered. Have to agree with Moto on this one...for $75, good air is your best bet.

I got my E8400 to 4Ghz, I have a picture somewhere.. It was on a GeminII cooler and actually booted once; never stable and not nearly cold enough LOL But it was an intense clock.

Yep, a hyper 212 is probably going to be the absolute best option under $75

with $75 he's stuck on air, even a megahelms black edition would be about $75 now on frozencpu.
