I'm in the market for a socket A watercooling kit. I don't want to spend over $150, but I still want good performance. The cheapest one I have found so far is from Be Cooling. Their 1/2" kit is $100 bucks. However, I can't find any reviews for it, on websites or on forums.

Can anyone recommend a good kit in my price and performance range? Has anyone here used Be Cooling's waterblock (or kit)? Is it any good? TYIA.

If your willing to spend up to $150, buy individual parts

TUBING- 10ft of 1/2" clearflex tubing @ dtekcustoms = $15

PUMP- via aqua 1300 OR maxi-jet 1200 = $23

RADIATOR- Cooler Core Combo (HeaterCore + Fan Shroud) @ dtekcustoms = $48

OTHER- Redline WaterWetter = $7, T-Fitting for bleeding air =$1

WATERBLOCK- this leaves you around $50 for a waterblock, such as the TC-4 (www.dtekcustoms.com) or MaskedGeek Type-S (www.case-mod.com)

I would think that a kit would always be cheaper than buying all of the parts individually.

The thing that bothers me about the Be Cooling kit is the waterblock. It claims to have a copper plate on the bottom, but I'm afraid that the waterblock is made of steel with a copper plate pointlessly slapped onto the bottom of it.
