Is this a decent deal on a WC setup?

    I'd be buying it used, but it would be a starter system.

    Block: Swiftech GT with all accessories.

    Pump: Delphi DDC-1T with Petras Top
    Includes the original top and some accessories.

    Radiator: Swiftech MCR-320 with (6) Yate Loon D12SL-12
    Includes a sanding kit, Swiftech Reservoir and all fittings are 1/2" plastics.

    $130 for all

    I'm running a Q6600. Would just stick to a single CPU loop for now. Kit is in good condition, but since I am new to WC'ing I wanted to get some people's opinions. Cheers!

    Its not a bad price but its kinda lacking.

    That block is a very old block. ApogeeGT, was replaced by the GTX, and then the GTZ.

    The DDC-1T is a weak pump. Its okey in the config you listed, but there are better pumps. Not to mention im guessing its an old pump because of the outdated petra top.

    The radiator is the best budget to performance ratio rad.

    In all it might be a better idea to piece your parts out a bit while trying to hold your budget. Also i dont think your aware of how big the radiator is.

    I understand that the radiator is a 3-fan one, but I have room around my system so that should be okay.

    Thanks for the info on the other parts though. It looks like the seller doesn't want to sell for his original asking price, so I may just tell him that I don't want to deal with him. I already told him I would pay him and then he tried to increase the price, kinda douchy if you ask me!

    Anyway, I may just put a WC system together piece by piece through FS threads and sales.

    Again, thanks for the info. Cheers!
