    I was just wondering,
    Does anyone actually sell an all in one Water cooling kit, that comes with everything you need, including a waterblock for CPU and GPU? Yes I know, the problem arises, well all pcb's for GPU's are different, so what someone needs to, like XSPC, is to need to make some kind of All in one customiser, All you do, is select what CPU you have, what GPU you have, and maybe some extra stuff, like mosfet, chipset, and ram cooling, and what colour coolant/pipes you want. Then all of this comes in a box, you hook everything up, and it just works. Making DIY water cooling for first timers easy. I know that larkooler had something like this, but its only for the older Nvidia cards, such as the 200 series and the 9800's.

    IMO youre better off asking some of the guys here who know more about watercooling to help throw together a kit based on your budget.

    Asetek used to make kits like these a while back, supplied their kits with a generic NB and GPU waterblock. but I dunno if things have changed since then. most kits come with the basics which is just the CPU block and maybe a generic NB block, rest is pretty much upto you to pick and choose.

    I pretty much plan to do the same when the time comes for me to get back into watercooling again later this year.

    yes Swiftech, XSPC, EKWB, most all of them offer a kit at a discounted rate. The components need a good looking at, some are better than others, but I have gotten some really good all inclusive kits over the past year or so. Most kits wont include a GPU block, but that can be added easily enough.

    Yeah, easily enough, is too much for me..... Gotta buy more pipes and connectors.
    And I was looking at the asetek one, for my current 2600k and 570, but the problem is, its only a single rad, so its gonna overheat pretty quick

    connectors maybe, but the tubing comes in a single length and you cut it to fit.

    Also with our help, not that big of a deal.

    My faith in TPU :respect:
    Yeah, but don't you normally need more tubing, cause your connecting up more things?
    Yeah, i'm hoping to do a full Watercooling setup, once I start full on OC'ing my new system, which is gonna have 3770k with the TT water 2.0 Pro, and an MSI gtx 680 Lightning, which I have verified is compatible with one of XSPC's full cover GPU blocks, so thats great. Then ya know, I can setup my cpu, up to 5Ghz, and chill my GPU at a steady, maybe 1200Mhz?, she'll be right. :pimp:

    most kits give you more than a CPU only loop requires, all you do is change the path and adjust the lengths as needed when you cut the long piece to fit.

    For what you have, and plan on cooling with, I would play with what you have first. This is a big investment, and you may find you are happy with what you have already.

    its 47mm thick...:laugh: It's plenty big for most rigs out there with decent overclocks on both cards.

    You sure. Even for a i5 2500k at 4.5ghz and a 7970 overclocked?

    Temps would probably be high but at the same time find me better cooling that will fit in most matx and itx cases.

    Custom watercooling....

    I said it needs a bigger radiator for my needs. Sounds perfect for your needs. I thought it was an interesting component and thought I would comment.

    Did any of you guys actually get the asetek 760gc kit and can give your opinion on it?

    Cheers

    I never actually got it, but it is a solid unit for lower power gpu's + cpu's. As it's a single 120mm radiator, once you start OC'ing, or have high power(high heat) cpu's or gpu's, the temperatures may not be the best. Although you will still probably be getting better temperatures than stock cooling.

    Get Motivated

    I don't mean to sound harsh, but it sounds like you're not ready to take the plunge, so you may want to stick with H100 or whatever. A custom loop takes a lot of extra work, not just to install, but every time you change something or remove a part for cleaning. It doesn't matter if it was purchased in a kit, or one piece at a time. Seriously, if you can't be bothered to select a GPU block, 2 barbs, and a couple feet of hose, what will you do when the other 6 or 8 (or 18) problems arise? EK has an online configurator that will show you every part that will fit your system, and if you select a wrong part it will tell you. They also seem to be the only company with full GPU waterblocks for newer cards, and even some motherboard blocks. I'd start with them.
    If you are limited to a 240mm radiator, Swiftech makes a new kit called the H220, which is pre-filled and ready to go, but can also have other blocks added without voiding the warranty (has a high-powered pump that can handle more components).

    From users on other forums, the info has been that it is better than stock.
