My System Specs

Default h100 or h60

Hey Guy's,

I was thinking of picking up one of these two on Friday. Tiger Direct will have them for 59.97 and 29.97. Is it worth it, I'm currently cooling my i5 3570k with a hyper 212+ and do not have any temp issues, just thought for the low price it's a good way to get into Water cooling.

Thoughts?

I wouldn't waste the money if your not having heat issues. The best way to get into water cooling, if that's your goal, is a custom loop. Take a look at (if you haven't already) some of the custom builds here. IMO nothing beats the look of a well thought out water cooled PC. I find that AIO coolers are great if you actually need one and don't have the time/money to spend on a custom job then fine go with it. Other than that I think it's a waste.

There wouldn't be that much of a difference over the 212. To make it worth your while you would have to go to something higher end or custom IMO.

Fair enough,

I don't have the funds to do a custom loop right now so I'll hold off.

Thanks

Unless you get a double or triple radiator, you don't see enough improvement out of the single raditor all in one loops to justify upgrading.
