    Ready filled water cooling kits.

    First of all what are they commonly know as?

    Im making a computer up for someone using a c2d and I want to OC it somewhat using
    water but as its not mine I want something that is unlikely (theoretically) to go wrong.

    I have seen them advertised but I cant remember the names. So any links and group reviews
    would be handy. Ideally around £50, they dont have to be great but obviously better than air
    and quieter.

    Any suggestions?

    to be honest, I still can't see how these work, I have a Corsair Nautillus 500 and I have to top it up, im testing a thermaltake setup at the moment and top up is recommended every 6 months.

    I cannot see how these can work effectively and more to the point, last for a while.

    As an aside the Corsair kit is very easy and whats more copes fine with my 3.4 Extreme Edition.

    cheap watercooling kits are usually no better than decent air cooling, i think kustom were doing an asetek kit for 49 quid a while back, a few people on here seemed to like it.

    if you are testing a thermaltake kit DO NOT USE the coolant that comes with them i have a tt rocket and after 2 months the cheap crap coolant had lined all of the pipes and blocks and was blocking them slowly

    i bought 3 litres of de-ionised water 1 litre of texaco antifreeze and alphacool antialgae fluid (enough to fill it 3 times over) all for about the same price as half a litre of premade coolant and i put the coolant in 5 months ago and i have zero sedament and no lining on the pipes

    Hmm If ready filled need topping up then like you say there seems little point.

    I know i saw one in micromart ill have so try and find it and see if it does or not.
    But no doubt such a thing doesnt exist. How often do they need topping up?

    thanks for the replies.

    A list of online shops which have a good range of stuff would be helpful.

    already had a look at kustom. overclockers, and scan

    If you really want a closed, no maintenance loop, look at this ;http://www.coolitsystems.com/index.p...ask=view&id=79

    It's expensive for what it is and won't fit into some cases, but it is completely sealed and requires no end user intervention.

    I remember seeing that a couple of months ago... a bit bloody expensive though.
    But at least I now know such a thing exists.
