Default Water Cooling Kit Question

Hi guys,

I'm a newbie in watercooling so I decided what if I'll just buy a WC kit. I have in mind of buying Noctua NH-U12P w/ a scythe slipstream 110cfm fan but a friend suggested to check the CoolIT Domino. So I'm asking you guys if this CoolIT Domino is good CPU cooler compared to the noctua and fan combo I'm thinking.

Thanks

A Domino for your Quad? I've tried that exact setup for a customer, which wanted a low-noise solution. It worked, but if you intend to oc that Quad, forget about it...

I see. Oh well then Good thing I asked. So by negative you mean the Noctua setup will outperform the Domino?

Honestly i would just try going with a build it yourself, i am doing that now for the first time, and man am i learning alot

these forums are really good for the help, and i have to say Dazmode on the forums here has a online store that has everything you need, and the prices where not that bad at all.

+1 for DIY, you'll end up with much better components and you will be learning.
