    First time watercooling spec for CPU

    I am only looking for a cpu only cooling setup for now. I have a budget upto about 150. Any recommendations? Oh I'm after a 240 rad to fit a corsair 300r so will prob need a slight mod. Bit fussed if it's a kit or separate components

    I don't think £150 will get you a custom WC setup unless you go the second hand route. So an AIO would be your only real choice, Coolermaster has just come out with a 240 AIO which at the moment comes in at under £100... review here: http://www.overclockersclub.com/revi...ton_240m/5.htm

    (i dont know or its suiteble for your cpu)


    the site highflow is one of the leading shops in europe for waterkooling. on modding fora its highly recommanded.

    Re: First time watercooling spec for CPU

    believe me AIO is a good option if you dont have the budget for a custom WC loop
    i have a thermaltake water 2.0 extreme
    i have no problem with it ever using it for more than a year now
