Default My Soon-To-Be loop

Opinions on my soon to be loop?

Swiftech Storm (going to be on an e4300 heading for 3.8 (had it at 3.6 on air just too hot) got it for free :))

Swiftech MCP655 Vario

Performance PC's Cyclone Res

Masterkleer 7/16 - 3/4 toobz

Black Ice GT Stealth 360mm with 3x80cfm Rosewills

Let's take this DS3/e4300 to 3.8. Paying 75 bucks for a CPU like this is gold!

What about a Dtek Fusion WB? I believe it's still the best performer and not a bad price.

Looks ok- I might choose differently, but those choices are fine on a budget- if you're going for the stealth rad, I might switch the high flow fans for something quieter- I don't think the stealth requires that much force to work well- not a very high resistance rad- not the best cooling rad as a result, but thin and quiet. If you want better cooling and don't mind the noise- get a GTX and some 38mm thick panaflos... I'll also chew up and swallow my own e4300 if you get one to 3.8

I would also get a Fuzion waterblock.
Also how much is that Performance PC's Cyclone Res?
Just get an EK one, i got 2 EK res the other day and they look great, they create cyclones as well, but i dont really like that

The storm is temporary, then I might get a Stinger waterblock, or a Fuzion. They are definitely noticed on my list.

I have a fan controller so I figure i'll be safe with these Rosewills. I was going to go the BIX route and panaflos, but the rad itself is an extra 10 bucks, and almost 30 for fans. Pushing the price higher and higher.

Looks good.

You can always swap out components if they don't quite meet your expectations (too loud, not cool enough, etc....).

Selling off used WC gear is getting easier as it gets a little bit closer to the mainstream.
