My System Specs

Default Whats this worth?

Decided im going back with air cooling since its going to cost a lot more then I really want to sink into finishing this watercooling loop.

Loop consists of

10ft of 1/2" ID black primochill tubing - cut in lengths for what needed to fit in a lancool
MCP655 pump
Swiftech microres
bitspower 1/2" hi flow fittings
hose clamps
EK supreme LT acryllic cpu block
4 x yate loon fans
MCR220 radiators

I usually ask for 75% of what I paid before tax and shipping, that seems to move "slightly used" parts pretty quick. And you probably won't be able to sell the tubing.

I was hoping to sell it as a whole kit. I was also looking in the ballpark of 60% of what I paid to get it back.

160+ shipping as a whole kit sound reasonable?

Why not to keep CPU only loop? Is it too hot?

It sure is. 3.8ghz on my i7 and it shoots up to 85+*C which is much too hot in my opinion. I paid a whole bunch more then my asking price already, and to get the results i want im looking at least another 300+.(add a 2nd bigger rad and 2 x GTX 260 waterblocks).

That is why I suggest put good fans (2000rpm or more) on existing rads and keep CPU only... Your YL are probably mere 1200 rpm on top of low end MCRs.

It is hard get good money from used stuff.

Invest in a good rad and good fans, That will make a huge diffrence.

Ive met alot of people selling loops, Not many are able to sell them as a hole. Good luck with your sale.

If you can Post it @ OCN as well, Thiers alot of water wetters thier

are you sure that the rad is full of fluid, not air pockets. this is the issue top mounted rads a bitch to bleed. best remove rez an lay case on its side having rez higher then loop, run/stop pump only. with cap opened to allow air escape, if rez drops level means the air pocket been released add fluid

note: do not hold rez over over case opening in case it drips use a folded towel below to catch

the black tubing is hard to see whats going on within the loop. imho
