Not sure if I want to go the AliExpress type route. The quality is likely fine but running liquid in my PC makes me feel like I don't want to cut corners. Unfounded perhaps?
I really like the design of the EK stuff. I don't have to do this fast, so if the cost takes me a bit longer I might be OK with that to get what I want.
General reviews for the Ali Express stuff has been pretty good. But there's definitely always the chance the 'you get what you pay for' line proves true. Of course the counter is you're paying a lot for marketing with Bitspower, swiftech, EKWB and for all those 'sponsored' builds.
Understandable to go with something a little more tried and true with your new kit. I may chance it on my Z97, as if it turns out to be crappy WC kit and it kills my MB/CPU, I guess I just need to upgrade after all :haha:
