That ain't practical, kits don't perform as well as individual components, they are merely to help users set something up when they can't. I personally do not like this.

Don't get me wrong, I understand what you are saying but it is doubtful to happen.

It's a small miracle itself that you can find 5 top rads or 5 top blocks alone, 5 top EVERYTHING.....
Is not complex, it is time consuming but there is enough to work with out there to make this go seemlessly. HWC can round up these components from their respective companies and provide a nice review.

I am not asking to come up with the BEST watercooling SETUP there is. If you are comparing radiators to radiators, you do not have to change the pump/cpu block/liquid/etc to test each one. You can simply choose a "template" setup to work with and tests the radiators with.

Example:

Hardware list:
Core i7 920
3x 2GB Corsair Dominator
X58 Classified

Watercooling setup:
XSPC Reservoir
EK Pump
EK CPU Block
Liquid X
Tubes X

Then test 5 different radiators to see who gives you the best performance.

Next time you are reviewing CPU Blocks, you keep the same configuration provided above but if desired, use the radiator you chose as top performer above (or just pick a random one)

This could be done, trust me it would attract a lot of readers
