if you plan to but an AIO, then buy an AIO. if you buying to add-on, why spend
$140USD for a pump? buy the APDII or seperate CPU block and pump for less.

the only "drawback" i seem to see it the filling procedure. as swiftech uses a
vacuum process for the retail kits (samples seemed to not have this process) how
will this effect the cooling if "improperly" filled? from the reviews it seems to be
a deal breaker for the temperatures. and like proper water-cooling parts, air
in a system wreckes alot of problems in a water-cooling system.

Some people persist in seeing the world as flat...it IS the 21st Century! If an "all-in-one" provides the potential for expansion which the previous cooling systems did NOT have, then that NEW system is a hybrid or an ALL NEW CATEGORY!

If one *improperly* does anything, whether it is refilling a radiator reservoir or an automobile radiator there are potential consequences. It is YOUR responsibility to learn proper procedures for installation of...anything.

Most of the reviews have been positive...it may make good sense to interpret reviews by discarding an extremely positive one as well as an extremely negative one. What is left over? Mostly positive? Yup!

Just rec'd my H220...when the waterblocks and additional radiator arrive (back ordered) will share results.

youve mentioned this twice. i wasnt disconnecting the H220 as not being
an AIO.

It comes factory pre-filled, completely plug-and-play for installation, and is maintenance-free during its 3 year warranty period.

For what use-case is th h220 a sensible purchase if you intend to immediately expand it, out of interest?

Guys, in my search for a close solution to reduce my overall noise I found this: ASETEK 760GC, and kit able to WC a cpu AND a gpu. Check here:



I´ve been wanting to WC my 2500K + 2x Gtx570 in SLI and this solution sounds good for someone that dosent want to spend much time and money to reduce the overall noise of the PC like myself. What I would like was to use this to WC both GPU´s but I read in some reviews that it´s not possible because of the length of one of the tubes, is this correct? If so, I could use it to WC my CPU and the top GPU (the one that gets hotter and louder because of the lack of space between the 2 cards). Should I buy 2 Noctua NF-F12 fan´s for a quiet and proper operation?
I already have a Noiseblocker 1000rpm fan
http://translate.google.pt/translate...ilentFan_120mm
So I cound just buy another one, correct?
It´s not that my CPU cooler is loud - Scynth Mine Rev. B - but maybe it can get better, when I game the fans get a little anoying, but I believe its the GPU fans...
One last question: I have the CoolerMaster Scout case, the H220 240mm radiator wouldnt fit in the front, back or top, like you said, but I can mount 2 120mm fans in the translucid side panel (check here: http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cas...scout-review/1) do you think it would be possible to mount the H220´s 240mm radiator there?

Thanks again you guys for all your input!

Cheers

Highly recommend Cougar Vortex 12HP PWM fans for great airflow at super quiet levels!

honest from doing my own research your best bet would be to sell your 580's and upgrade to a single 680. Your watercooling loop would then be much easier and cheaper. I live in the USA so my prices are going to be different then yours however, i can do a gpu and cpu in a loop for about 360 USD. so that should be close to 300 euros. As mentioned your case is also and issue. The Scout is a great low to mid level case. The fact the it doesnt really support radiators is it's main downfall. Considering your presented situation i would say go for the all in one cpu cooler. Its cheaper then a custom loop and will give your cpu better temps. You could also wait and save up the money to be able to afford what you want.

If you want to make a custom loop you gotta start from the ground up. So i would say your first priority would be your case. I have personally have a NZXT Switch 810. It is probably the one of the best opinions for watercooling. It doesn't require any mods which basically allows you to drop in your gear and go.

i wouldn't look to mount any kind of closed loop all in one cooler on the side panel just because if you ever have to open up the case you have to worry about pulling on the CPu socket if the tubing isnt long enough. You would have to take it off ever time you wanted to go into your comp.
