Default Water cooling kit

Is it just me or this Water Colling kit from NCIX, is the Swiftech H20-220 apex.
For $199cad it seems like a reasonable price.

It basically is the Apex Ultra kit. Less the brand = that price... Good deal for sure!

It's a good kit. Just watch out, the bottom half of the list is 'Recommended upgrades', and that stuff doesn't actually come with the kit itself. Maybe it's just me - I didn't catch that until the second time I read the list through.

I agree with you. There needs to be a line or something. Even just make the heading "Recommended Upgrades" larger.

That kit is better, but not 50% better.

If you're serious about getting things as quiet as possible, the PA 120.2 and the variable speed pump are a big help, but the Swiftech rad in the cheaper kit is no slouch.
