    Looks like a good solution for the budget enthusiast who doesn't want to risk his rig. My only concern is that it doesn't cool your CPU, which would make it the only WC system you need in your rig to cool the major components.

    Thanks for the review, I've been wondering about these. It looks like I'm sticking with a good "silent" air cooling system for now (unless I suddenly get a much hotter running card).

    eh, temps like that were to be expected from trying to put 130w onto a 2x80mm rad.

    I hate products like these. So utterly pointless when for less money and less complication you can get a better heatsink that will give you lower temperatures.
    Cooler Master either needs to abandon their water-cooling line or fire everyone involved.

    The rad isn't the issue. A 2x80mm should be fine, it's the cooling block to get the heat to it that's the problem.

    Yeah, that and the pathetic pump.

    Well the cooling block contains the pump. Even in low flow situations like the European wc-ers specialise in you can still get good temps.
