    I don't want to go over say, 200$, and I want to know if I should scrap my Ultra 120 for a liquid cooling system that I can afford for that price. So, is there anything?

    Thanks

    Hmmm ..

    What I did link you to was a kit. I don't understand. You mean preassembled? If did mean that I would HIGHLY shun you away from it. Go the little extra, and get individual "peices". Ther performance behind it is worth the time spent putting it together (especially when coming from high end air)

    Okay, now I'm confused. You linked me to a pre-assembled kit that was simply discontinued. So, I linked to one that was not. I don't want to collect the parts, I want a kit, which is what you linked me to.

    EDIT: Are you suggesting that what I linked to was an ordinary factory-built cooling solution that one cannot tear apart? In that case, I am sorry, that's my mistake. But the one you linked me is still not available.

    Discontinued = on sale right now and beginning to sell the rest of the stock of the preconfigured said kit.

    EDIT:
    If I sound like im being a jerk, I am sorry. :)

    No, don't worry about that. I already know you.

    What about this one, in comparison to yours? http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swh2edukit.html

    EDIT: Wow, according to this, I would be spending 250$ to get an extra 10C off.. http://www.madshrimps.be/?action=getarticle&number=5&artpage=3870&articID=897

    Well, Gosh.. I'm not too sure. 74C @ 4.0Ghz? I thought I could get to 4.5Ghz with that good of a cooling system. What do I have to spend to get there - 500$?

    1. Laing D5 Vario
    2. Black Ice Xtreme 240mm Radiator
    3. Swiftech Micro Res
    4. 4x PT Yate Loons (speed of your choice) for push/pull
    5. 7/16" ID Tygon R-3603 Tubing (about 10ft)
    6. Apogee GTZ or DTek Fuzion v2 (or a Fuzion with one of fit's tops ;))

    DONE. I cooled over 20 E8500's at 4.5GHz or higher with this setup, and I never saw a temperature above 53C.

    You're welcome ;) BTW - you can get all this at PTS.

    Yes, well the E8500's don't seem to get very hot. I am talking about the 920.

    Thanks anyway, though.

    EDIT: Dude, just the pump costs 80$..

    I ahd the Swiftec H20-220 compact. It was a GREAT cooler. Kept things running very cool. Even my Q6600 @ 1.55V was under 60*C with 27*C room temp.

    Alright, well that comes down to just short of 300$ for DanishDevil's build.

    Anyone like it?

    Dude, just the pump is one of the most important components of your watercooling system...

    Yes, but the CPU block costs 65$ and the radiator costs 58$, not to mention it's out of stock, and..

    Do yourself a favor and snag the block and radiator used and clean them out before you use them. Pump I would get new, tubing new, and fans used are fine.
