New Water Setup

Well Just want to ask the opinion of a few of you guys. OCAU is full of retards so I am posting here cos I dont want someone to tell me to get a Thermaltake BigWater :P

This is my proposed new setup:
Swiftech Storm G4 $129
Swiftech MCW-55 $89
Swiftech MCP-655 $139
Swiftech Micro Res $28
Black Ice Extreme 3 $148
Tygon R3603 1/2" ID tube 2m $36

Total $569

Can anyone reccomend anything better or cheaper with similar performance?

have you included 3 fans to go on the bix3? do you need the Bix3? (no sig, dont know what you've got to cool)

looks pretty much top of the line.

check out http://www.radiical.com.au/ for some alternate gear. (assuming you looked at D&K)

Yep i am, looking at d&k as they are only 10 mins from my house

Well I have some nice stuff to cool:

Opteron148
X1900XTX

And with Rad's I always thought the bigger the better. I may just try the swiftech 2x120mm rad for now. I also thought of just buying the swiftech apogee kit and adding a gpu block, but the agpogee cpu blocks get bagged alot for some reason..

Still deciding though lol.

As for fans I have heaps of 120mm fans around the place

You dont need the res, just use a tee piece

Radical have a VERY nice tripple fan single pass rad that I would just kill for

If you want to save some $ just get the Apex kit (NOT with the apogeeee)

joo noob :P

If you've got the room for it, then triple rad ftw, as will be most useful with SLI/CF.

i was at pccg the other day and they said they might bring in the apex without a block, then the end user can buy a block to suit (ie Storm or apogee)

i like the look of the radiical rads as well.
