Default How much did your loop cost

So after counting up the bills and realizing how addicting water cooling is I was wondering how much you guys put into your loops. I spent around $700 for my loop. Fittings and fans really bite you in the butt

I spent about $500 for my loop in July of 2007 and just switched over to an Antec Khuler 920 in October so I got over 4 years with the MCP655-B pump and Black Ice Xtreme rad.
I did change the CPU block once and bought some fittings, tubing, liquid and other toys over those 4+ years so make the total $850.

And I also had a lot of fun with it and also modding my cases to better fit the loops I built in those cases. :)

So not a great decision from a price performance perspective but from a fun perspective it was worth it if you are into that sort of tinkering.

Including the GPU block, mobo block, pump mount and compression fittings the total was around $600 for my current loop. Over months of time.

The current build is around 600 with shipping I guess. In total I've spent double that playing around. :)

The little loop in my server cost around $500 or so if you include the coolant, dye, and fans.
