Yeah what he said...lol. That's the route I went(Tt first WC) also but thanks to a carefully placed shortcut on wifes laptop I got a swiftch apex ultra kit last christmass and waited till I picked up two gpu blocks before I installed it. Maybe not the most extreme but I like it and it performs well. IMO I think Tt's waterblock problem(cracking) is because of the H bracket. There is nothing stopping you from overtightening it and causing too much pressure on the acrylic.Heh.....
The thermaltake was my first foray into WC and it was the only decent kit available locally.
I of course agree completely with avoiding the water blocks (it's the design of the clampless barbs that causes the overtorquing which stresses the acrylic), but I don't think anybody can argue with my temps.
That said, next build will be piece by piece rather than a kit.
Hehe, yeah that would be a perfect world!Wish I could do 5 full builds in a year.
I'm a hardware geek as opposed to a software geek.
My computing needs could probably be met with a PIII 500, but I love building and tweaking the hardware.
In a perfect world, 2 weeks after finishing a build from hardware to OC/Tweaking/Benching, somebody would offer me what I paid to build it and I could start again.....
