I'm sure most people will agree with me when I say that you should build the kit yourself, because normally they preform better and are cheaper.

So true. DIY is the way to go. But if you're hell bent on a kit, there are better ones out there.

This is the place to ask questions, so fire away. Years of collective knowledge in this forum.

I have ordered it(KT15-L20), and it should be in by the end of this week. But I just found out that the tubing is 1/2" OD, 3/8" ID:mad: and I am quite fedup cause I would be adding a Maze4 GPU block in and no doubt the performance would not be so good. Besides, I read through 30-40 reviews of this kit and found it to be one of the most user friendly kits in the market, though not the highest performing.:p

lo BlooD ....i am using an asetek system and tbh it rocks ....i read up for ages and since we dont have the resources available in usa like loads of dealers..i went for the asetek getting some nice results too ...have only had one leak when i changed my vid card over...very easy system to fit that can no doubt be sold second hand no problem when i know a bit more about watercooling :D
on the 12v setting i get a stable temp of 26c/30c load with a 3.0 @ 3.585 ...chip wont go alot higher as most 3.0's top out around 3.6 but am going for the 2.4 in the new year when me pockets are ful again lol btw i get 28c/34c on 7v (almost silent)...the only other alternative left to me was danger den maze 3 kit and tbh if ya wanna pay loads for shipping etc and have a little more fun building it yourself then crack on....but as a noob to water i found this a wicked intro:D good luck & happy o/cing

my suggestion would be to read through the stickies in the watercooling section of the forum, as well as search for specific topics you come interested in. Because, I know from personal experience, ..they keep coming. (yeah I'm a science lover)

As others have said, don't be afraid to ask questions.
Building your own kit is very enjoyable and rewarding.

lol BLooD...have you ordered the gpu cooling block? is so it fits on most cards as soon as i got my 9800 pro i ripped the standard heatsink off :D never even contemplated using stock cooling...hopefully your stock heatsink is'nt stuck with epoxy so you do similar for the core....i used an old heatsink which i cut up and attached to the memory chips ...works nice but am burning this one in slowly as i think i frazzed my 9700 pro by going to fast to soon without proper cooling :burn:

iv allready had the sink of me fx, game and half that bleeder were, runs great at 540/1.10, gainward golden sample fx 5800 ultra, this fx has taken all the **** iv thrown at it and just smiled sweetly back, yeah its the full kit, just the power edition instead of the standard one,. i owe u one for the heads up on that buddy, was cheaper than ordereing just the cpu power kit from asetek.
