  1. I'd want to go with this as the basis http://www.svc.com/rd5ex360.html then add your gpu blocks
  2. So get that now and the GPU ones later?

    That would be my approach. Since I set your budget back a bit, add the graphics blocks as affordable (although that is a decent price I'd say)
  4. alright im gonna get that what about toobing does it come with it ? how would i know which to get , sorry im a newb on it

    The kit comes with everything needed to cool a CPU including tubing (8') and compression fittings for the tubing which I believe are 7/16 ID - 5/8 OD but you would need to reference that elsewhere to be sure - I know I've seen it before but I can't find those numbers
  6. I would actually skip the CPU at this point and just go straight into water-cooling the GPU's.
    Your budget wont let you cool both of them, so what I would do is water-cool the top one and overbuild the loop so including the 2nd one is just going to be a matter of buying and installing a block for it.

    The CPU would be an easy upgrade from there.
  7. im confused so just buy everything except the CPU block?

    I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure that would be a more expensive route since I have not been able to source the parts cheaper than in the kits
  9. You would be straining the budget to take my option yes, but at least this way he isn't throwing out his existing H80i.
  10. I could sell my H80 and its not an i model .

    also is that the best place to get Water cooling kits?


    i found this one for a lot cheaper is it the same thing?

    Nope, the pump on that one is far inferior to the dual D5 system which explains much of the price discrepancy - this one is the closest FrozenCPU offers http://www.frozencpu.com/products/17221/ex-wat-224/XSPC_Copper_Raystorm_AX360_Extreme_Intel_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_w_Twin_D5_w_Free_Dead-Water.html?tl=g30c321s1310
  12. o ok so im just gonna go for the 289 one then
