looks snazzy, but the key is does it provide a significant improvement over air cooling? i dont see why it wouldn't

I have an H70 right now that I'm happy with. I think that this will give even more leg room for cooling.

I was actually considering a all-in-one solution as well... maybe go for a new, more powerful GPU (for BF3) + CPU cooler come holiday time.

I have to withhold opinion until I see multiple reviews. iirc TT's last WC attempt didn't work out too well.

Sure looks nice though.

That said, I've considered some of Swiftech's all in one solutions. Pricier though, but Swiftech has a good name in watercooling.

My next pc build will have another all in one wc device. I'm looking for something like what the pic above is offering.

I have the H70 as well. It's not the Alpha and Omega of cooling but I think I'll be sticking with it for some time.

It was always a high rate of leaks reported among users. I can live with lackluster performance to a point, but a leaky WC setup - No way.

There's the possibility they've learned from past mistakes, but I would need to see a LOT of positive end user feedbacks before even considering this unit.

They're pricey, but if I were to go with a prebuilt kit it would be one of these most likely.

I'd bet a lot of those leaks were the result of some newb putting them together.

Regardless, none of the "Big Water" kits have been any good thus far. I'd also want to see A LOT of reviews.

I picked up a XSPC rasa 750 kit from Frozen CPU for $150 and i think its a great kit for the money. Mine has the 120mmx3 radiator mounted in the top of my Haf-X case and the pump/resi in two bays and it looks great, works great and uses standard parts for easy upgrades.
