Oh thanks for the link, I do plan on getting the h20-120 compact within the next two days, and this is all I need.

One thing though (this is just confuzzling me), why are direct canada's prices so much cheaper than NCIX, when they are essentially sharing the same warehouse. Is it the same company? Is Direct Canada Trust worthy?

Thanks!

DC has better pricing, but a little less on the support side. It's probably one dude stuck in a corner somewhere with a bunch of servers doing most of the work. NCIX give you a little more support (but that's not saying much....). They make RMA's a little easier too.

That's the new version with the water block / pump combo and rad / res combo. I wonder how it performs.

Cptn Vortex November 5, 2007 08:15 PM

It looks like it should be decent. Sure, the pump on the waterblock will raise temps ever so slightly, but just the compact size and ease of install would make this a very wise choice for newbies to watercooling, and people with very small cases. Hmm, wonder if you could install this waterblock on a 8800 card..... run 2 kits in a P180, that would be quite the sight.

DDC vibrates like heck. With no decoupling, and mounted directly onto a motherboard, I wonder how much noise the vibration alone creates.

I wonder what the temp diff's would be between this unit and a 9700 Zalman air cooled fan?? think it would be more than a few degrees???

right now the CPU sits at 30degree's and the system at 29 degrees. PC wizard is showing a 1 degree difference. Do you think the Swiftech kit could lower those numbers considerably?? My main watercooling direction has been severely cut in budget.

Your in the same boat as me. Both have E6600s and Antec 900s. Don't know if I really want to fork out the money for a full setup, especially when I see something like this for $130. From the reviews I've read, it seems better suited for quad-cores. Using Swiftech's calculator thing on their site, the predicted temps aren't going to be much better.

I guess we are in the same boat.... I have been piecing together kits and looking a full premade kits, even going as far as looking at the "water keg" kits for 500 US.... ouch........ the biggest thing here, and its the hardest decison to make is, do I just stay at cooling the CPU and ignore my 2 GPUS... or do I pay the $$$$ now and buy a kit that is ready and able to handle it.... I just don't know..... plus the girlfriend isn't helping matters!!!!!:doh:
