Has anyone used the CPUfx watercooling kit or knows of any reviews of it? I am thinking about getting it since I want a mid ranged cooling kit. Some of the more expensive ones like Swiftech and Innovatek are a little too much for me... > $200 plus the Swiftech kit does not come with a water block. I haven't been too impressed with the sub $100 kits. Any suggestions?

you really dont want to buy from them, check their reseller ratings! its like a 2 from 0-10, thats pretty poor, and the products are not that good at all, they try to jip ya as much as they can

I agree. It's possible to piece together your own high performance "kit" on a mid-range budget. You just have to do some looking around.

I agree with the other two. CPUfx is one of the only water cooling companies that has a very bad reputation. If you search the forums for cpufx and read each thread, you will bump into many people that have had bad experiences with their products.

On a side note, I also remeber an old thread about a person that bought one of their pumps. In the instructions that came with the pump, it said you *CANNOT* use ANY additives (i.e. water wetter), or you void your warranty. When he opened the pump later on down the line, he said there was TONS of crap growing in the pump. I'll try and look for the thread.

you could build a serious setup that would blow away the cpufx rig for less $$$. read alot of post and ask questions. youll figure a good setup out.

you know why they tell you that? because most people will anyway, and thatll void the warrenty for WHEN, not if, the pump dies, its a crappy 12v pump

I checked out reseller ratings and there are a few complaints but some of the others are good feedback. That is normal for any company but I can't say if they are legit or not. I never knew their kits were that bad. I know I could get the parts seperate but it seems to be expensive that way. A good waterblock from danger den is around $45 for example and a good pump can get as high as $60. I actually checked out crazypc.com and they have a swiftech kit a lot cheaper than getting it directly from swiftech. The kit actually comes with the waterblock for around $130.
