So guys, im wondering if the Thermaltake bigwater 760 plus is good. I am wanting to cool an i3 3220, quietly.
I want it to be future proof, and how well would it cool a i7 3770k(what i will be upgrading to)?
I have found one for £55, but i am at school and cant find the link :( 

I have heard that it leaks, is this true? And if this is rubbish, what cheap solution would you suggest(under £60)

watercooling will cost a bit more

this is out in a few weeks

and looks really promising

high quality components

and upgradeable to add gpu cooling--more rads etc

or can be used as is just to cool the cpu

i would take that over a h100i every time

far higher quality pump--about 6w to the h100i 1.5w

far quieter

better quality all round

great mounting system

tried and tested block--swiftech have been in the watercooling game a long time

and the h100i cant be added to should you get the watercooling bug and decide to cool your gpu in the

future

or add more rads

also includes a 8 pwm splitter block which i hope they sell seperately

and their reps are more than happy to answer questions

Swftech 220 and Xspc's rs240 kits are the lowest you should look at for real watercooling,
Basically if your budget is under £140/$140, stick with highend aircoolers
