I recently saw a water cooling combo here in this furum for around $249-$270 (US). I don't remember the name but it was based on a spiral interior core. It is a new product I think. I have seen others too for less. You can look into Koolance and get the whole case and cooling as a setup. Don't know about thier prices. :confused:

PS: I was going by the price mentioned above, but after looking at there site I think it's about $215. If that right it's not bad.
Keep looking.

IMHO, no!!!!!! It's a waste of your money because:

1. The reservoir leaks
2. The radiator is lousy and there is no easy way to attach to a case except ties. No way to get the fan on except ties.
3. The water block clip is a poor design and flimsy. I wouldn't trust it to keep a block on a CPU.
4. I wouldn't use vinyl hose.
5. The pump is Ok, but overpriced.

The only decent component is the water block. I received this kit from Leufken's Tech and now it's in my closet, somewhere. You'd save a lot of money by picking your own components. The kits don't make the installation any easier.

Good luck!

Think your Calculation is backwards. Its $200 CAD therefore its about 130 USD.

That seems to be less than some of the advertised kits from American sites. You could get alot better with a little research and get most of you parts from the local hardware/autoparts/pet store. The system will probably cost about the same (or less)and you will get alot of the top-of-the line cooling parts.

My 2cents

The price/performance ratio for that thing will not be as great as a different kit from someplace like Swiftech or Danger Den. The radiator is not one of the more efficient ones, but it would work. I agree, hard to mount to case and fans.

I would spend a little more and you could get a better kit from dangerden or overclockershideout.
