What do you think? Isn't it kind of obvious?

XSPC is obviously the best but it needs a rad/tubing/pump/res etc.

Much more fun than the corsair.

It comes with that, it's a water cooling kit. The thing is, is it worth the extra money?

If you need/want the cooling performance for a silent/super oc machine and you want to look badass then yes, yes it is.

Will it be easy to replace the waterblock if LGA 1150 is not comparable?
I'm thinking about putting my 8120 to around 5GHz, can that cooler do the trick?

Quite possible. It's got a lot of cooling power however that CPU will draw HUGE amount of power at 5ghz.

The blacks are easy to replace once you've drained the system.

Well, I have a 750w PSU and a 7970.
Would that be enough?

I would just push out the top so you keep the convection currents going

Erm...?

Not quite sure what you mean. You can watch any video even not overclocked.

What about 4k videos?

They will be fine but it's fairly pointless since we don't have 4k displays?

Even non oc'd you can as the GPU takes most of the work.

How would I drain it?
The things you need to do for a water cooler sounds kinda like a fish tank.
So would a thirsty can do the trick?

You might have to mod the case but sure you could.

Get some fans with very high static pressure to push a rad that think though.

Also 2 More Questions:

1. Can you look at this and tell me if it's everything I need (of course not the water), also I'm gonna get one of those silver things to kill mold but is that all?
2. What "Order Of Flow" should I use (of course since I'm comparing this to a H100i so it's a CPU only loop)?

That seems to come with everything you need. Obviously more fittings and blocks are needed if you want more things in the loop.

Not sure what you mean by order of flow as that's only a CPU kit but you can use a splitter to send one flow to the CPU and one to the GPU and rejoin for the rad so they are in parallel.

By that I mean what part of the cooling should go first?
Like should the pump, pump directly to the CPU then cool the water or the other way around?

I Also Have 2 More Questions:

1. Should I use Liquid Ice or distilled water?
2. Should I cycle it with water, then dump it out and put in new water so I can get any dust out of the loop?

Just distilled water with an additive. I've never done it but it sounds logical.

Read the sticky I linked you and it will advise you on order and such

Cleaning the loop IS recomended #1
#2 this loop will cool anything up to like 4.2 ghz
#3Everything comes that you will need except maybe mounting screwes to the acctual case except liquid(use distilled water its naturaly non conductive) id would use kill coil or an acctual peace of silver (i used n silver earing)
#4I use a shop vac to clear my water loops works great when u need to clean n refill,just open the fill port and place vac over the opening for about 20 mins
#5 oder of flow is explained in the directions..

Please read the stickies on the forums. These kinds of threads are the exact reasons they exist.
