My System Specs

Default Swiftech H20-120

Okay, so I am happy to say I will be steering clear of TT for their watercooling solutions!
Now, I would like some advice if possible on this Unit, if anyone has ever used it before.

The Case it would be going into is my NZXT Apollo. I should be able to do an Interal mount on this , I won't be pushing the Processor much past 3.33 (E8400) so I think the single rad would do the trick. I don't want to have to mount this outside the case using the RadBox, because where my computer is, it would put the Rad right up to the Cold Air Return in my house.
How expandable is this unit as well, because I had a cool thought of adding a Second Rad to the loop via mounting it on my Side fan Panel and making the fan Push instead of pull.
Just thoughts for now. Its a Cramped interior (much like all Mid-Towers) and to top it off my damn PS needs to be switched for a Modular as well, way to many cables floating around.

Thanks for your time everyone,

ST

When I checked out the single rad H2O kit it didn't put out any better performance than a good air cooler. The 220 is where you start to see some WC benefits.

Fair enough, so putting a second rad onto the loop would work out in my benefit then?

Now I just need to find a place to buy them, and some accessories for them.

Thanks Wilson, appriciate your comment.

Dual rad kit here NCIX Is a good place to start if you're in Canada. I didn't take notice to where you are sorry. It is easily upgraded as well.

Thats my mistake, was eager to join the Forums, not so much to fill out all my stats.
I'm from Canada so NCIX is available with me no problem.
I'll take a look Sniper, thanks!

I used the H20-120 compact to cool my CPU and I got better performance using air cooling. I upgraded the rad to a Thermochill 120.1 rad and now I get decent cooling.
