How quiet is quiet? Hard mounted pumps are going to transmit some unwanted vibrations. Great execution though as it cleans up the loop considerable because of the res built into the rad.

Not clear from the picture if any noise dumping measures were used. Keeping in mind cost cutting theme for the kit, it may buzz quite a bit. We will find out soon, somebody will buy it eventually.

ive had to deal with a few built in pumps. one out of a handfull would 'noise' with or without rubber epoxied to the case.

and yeah,daz, why not make some competition? :) little guy vs big guy.

Regarding the airflow depicted in drawings 2 and 4, do any HWC water cool gurus bring cool air from the top of their case for the rad?

i say itll increase case flow and temps ant the same time. hmm....all of it going out the back? i dont know about that one. maybe a couple case have the rear end potential for good exposure.maybe.

i usually have top fans blow out, for some reason even with dust filters i get less crap inside this way.

I'm certainly not a guru, but for my part.... no.

Little confused... I see people saying they will buy this Kit but use another Block...

DOes the Kit come with the option Not to include the Block?

If not, Your paying for that block in the Kit, Now add the Price of a good block... HMMM Buy and make your own damn Kit. Or stick to the Cheap little all in kits like the H50/70.

This is coming from a person that has built at least 10 kits from scratch And has been watercooled for over 10 years.

I am far from a guru but, yes, I have a 922 case with case>fan body only(no blades)>fans>triple rad. Fans are pushing air up. Load temps i7 920@4ghz=62C
I am going to change it though and use this:
EK-UNI RAD Holder 120mm BLACK (finally metal radbox!) EK-UNI RAD Holder 120mm BLACK [EK-UNI RAD 120] - $11.99 : DazMode, Canadian PC Water Cooling and Modding Store
to hold my triple rad on top of my 922 then put these:
Feser Xtender 120mm Radiator Shroud - Dual Blue LED Feser Xtender 120mm Radiator Shroud [1033] - $20.99 : DazMode, Canadian PC Water Cooling and Modding Store
on top of the rad with my fans in suck at the very top.

And now for MSRP pricing:

H20-220 Edge: $309.95
H20-320 Edge: $339.95 :cool:
MCR-220 Drive (Rev2) with MCP35X pump: $212.95
MCR-220 Drive (Rev2) without pump: $131.95
MCR-320 Drive (Rev2) with MCP35X pump: $225.95
MCR-320 Drive (Rev2) without pump: $144.95
Apogee XTL: $59.95
If I'm reading this right, the H20 Edge kits include the block while the MCR Drive kits w/ pump would be everything but the block + tubing to connect to it. Now... $225 for rad/pump/res does seem a bit pricy, but it is an all-in-one which would appeal to WC newbs.

Why the hate-on for the APOGEE XT?

It's a good block.
