of course one day after i buy one of these kits from microcenter and get it installed, this pops up.
knibbs1325
Buy and return the new one to them if you have the time frame to return it.
plus i'm new so plz don't judge me
hey anybody who knows when it stops saying Status: pending payment
because now theres a smaller amount of time and it still says it anybody who can help me plz....

It will stop saying that when the timer runs out. Currently I'm staring at 7h left in this particular drop. After the timer runs out you will be charged for your purchase however you decided to pay for it, i.e. paypal, bank account, etc. Then, you wait until your package, stuffed inside a box with Massdrops logo on it arrives at your door in the very near future and you get super excited about opening up the awesomeness inside it! ;) BTW, this is a very good AIO H2O solution. Good choice if you did indeed purchase it. EK's line of products are very well made. I'm currently using one of their 360 Coolstream radiators in my build and am very satisfied with it's heat dissipating capabilities.
I`ll buy a predator 280 if they can sell it here.
now don't shoot me fellas, just a question:
as far as PERFORMANCE goes, what are the benefits of this KIT compared to a corsair H115i?
i know this ekwb kit is extremelly well maid and it looks prettier if done right.
but what about actual cooling performance?
from what i can see in benchmarks, corsair AIO kits actually perform better.
so besides fit and finish and looks, what is the benefit?
i'm currently on a 6700k oc'ed to 4.5 on minimal voltage increase on a noctua nh-d14.
i'm on the fence between this ekbw and a AIO from either swifttech or corsair. But i just don't see a single performance increase over cheap AIO kits that justifies the price differencial.

You should look into the new EKWB predators with quick detach so you can add a GPU block later on if you want to. With custom loop, you can set your fans to a low speed and have a quiet setup while keep everything cool but require more radiator space.
NYalex
The rads can last for years and pumps don't. So all in one coolers have this problem when the pumps die everything goes in the garbage. Also you cannot replace the tubing as easy on AIO cooling setups like ya can with this EK kit. Longevity wise the EK kit is the way to go.
I'm glad to see EK products here on Massdrop, but I really wish that the Slim series wasn't the only one available. If you go to the EKWB site, there are 4 lines of kits, from the Slim radiator types sold in this drop, to the mid grade "L" and "P" series, to the "Extreme" tagged "X" series. Of those 4 listed, I'd be most interested in the "X" series, especially if Massdrop could get a good price - https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-kit-x360 . In addition, EK has recently come out with an all-in-one expandable kit, the "Predator" models, which would be another top of the line offering I'd like to see here on Massdrop - https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-xlc-predator-360-incl-qdc .
Please allow a wider selection of EK Kits / AIOs to be part of the drop!@
holy crap, thats a really good deal for wc starters!
Anyone wanting to get into water cooling this is a great deal IMO. This kind of set gives rookies the chance to try water cooling and maybe expand it later down the road if they really enjoy it. EK is extremely reliable and they stand behind their products and I personally don't even think twice about using EK for water cooling.

I nearly ran outta fittings putting this one together and the ugly blue one was replaced. Bottom rad is EK. CPU and GPU blocks are both EK. A bunch of the fittings are EK too.

sorry I don't understand.
clshades
lol... neither do I. Musta been a drunk post lol.
I love EK products. I have been using them exclusively besides Koolance Quick Disconnects. If anyone has any concerns about the EK coolant I have been using the Clear Concentrate in my system for a good 3 years and have never had any issues. Not a single one. I replace my fluid after 8-12 months but even at 12 months the coolant was fine. most likely didn't need replaced but it isn't a big deal with a drain loop.
I highly advise that you go and order 2 more compression fittings (10/13mm) and a ball valve to create a drain point which will help you in the future when draining.

maint I do once a year. The tubing I use I could probably go 2 years... its very good stuff.
As Clshades said, you can get components wet a bit before it causes damage. If it sits for a bit (like a few drips) itll leave corrosion behind. As for wet, I left a laptop out in the rain once, battery was long dead on it so I opened it up and air dried it quickly and then let it sit next to a radiator style heater for a week. Came back, cleaned up any crud that remained and it powered on like a champ. With a full size pc, lets say you spring a leak and notice it within an hour or 2 of it happening (since a leak is going to be either a slow drip or a mild drip) you should be mostly okay since a few drips won't really cause much harm unless it somehow gets inside a ram slot or under the cpu.
That is just the cutest little reservoir. Does anyone know if this res can be mounted upright against the back panel or is it just on the little base in the picture?

This is actually a pump and reservoir combo in this kit, unlike the Predator which has the pump hooked to the radiator. So you can't separate the res from the pump. You can however mount the combo unit in any direction except upside down, and you can also get a separate reservoir and mount that almost anywhere you like. Every component you add needs another pair of fittings though.
Vertical tube shaped reservoirs are commonly used standing up as it makes it extremely easy to bleed the air out of the coolant loop, but you can put them any direction you want and make them work really.
Saiyamoto
It is to bleed and fill when it is upright but they're the most annoying reservoirs to fill on the side. Have to move the tower around and such,
can i diy it to cool my rx480?
wongyumichael
If it's a reference 480. I don't think anyone makes blocks for the other ones yet. Put a GPU water block onto it, and you can just add it into the loop. You'll need to get some extra fittings and possibly tubing as well to connect it. If you are cooling CPU and GPU though, I would recommend getting at least the 240mm radiator, if not the 360mm. This kit is designed to be upgradeable and customizable.
So since I'm new to custom water cooling, with the clear liquid that is provided, how can I color it red? I know with a PC loop you can't just put some food coloring in and I'd have to use some specialized dye to color it, just unsure as to what. Also, would I need to get something to prevent growths and corrosion in the loop?

I would recommend using red tubing instead of dye. Primoflex advanced lrt is the best one I have used personally. It doesn't gunk up as fast as other tubing. If you use DYE anything thing clear plastic will stain and it's nearly impossible to clean later. Straight distilled water with a little inhibitor works fine. You can use any kind of glycol but I suggest Propylene as it's food safe. One shooter of this stuff in any loop is more than enough and it costs 4 or 5 bux at your local car parts store or the like.
I think colored tubing looks better than this dyed water coolant junk.
clshades
I've heard that too, but again I think Ill go with dye first since this kit comes with clear tubing. At least for a bit, I'm not planning of adding GPU blocks (since I have MSI 980Ti's with the Twin Frozr) and see how it all works. Since I've got a backup heatsink tower if it does gunk up bad I'll just swap them out temporarily and either clean it or order new parts if it gets really bad.
Now if we could only add on GPU blocks to this too... :)

Depending on you GPU, it may be at the same temps as you aircooled. A formula most people go by is give 120mm rad space for each component cooling and an extra 120mm rad space if overclocking.
markmatley
You can add it in just fine. Almost everything else makes is modular
Does anyone know if there's a way to use a radiator from an aio cooler with this set (adapters or something)?

Kob is pretty much spot on, but I would add on the caveat that EK only recommends using EK products in their loop typically, of course, but obviously there are plenty of parts that are very easy to find and use along with such as G1\4 fittings. One thing though that I know for sure is basically all of EKWB parts work flawlessly with one another and are built with expansion in mind typically so you can't go wrong with them.
wardinson
This is very true. Lots of brands make parts that will fit in a cooling loop. I have an Alphacool radiator and reservoir, a Swiftech radiator and pump, and XSPC pump top, Primochill PETG and compression fittings, and EK blocks for GPU/CPU. All works great together, but there were some caveats, so if you are ever unsure, you can stick to a single brand and have a guaranteed fit. It's nice to have peace of mind when you are pumping water around inside your PC lol.
I am going to be keeping a close eye on this one...
This drop has peaked my interest. I have been wanting to get started with an EK set. Now to get 'billing approval' lol. ūüėé

May your proposal be solid and the PC Gods be with you. For you, brave sub lvl 10 novice soul, are willingly stepping into the bounds of 'modding' while the Wife Raid Boss is still active. Venture bravely, may your divine words carry the authority to grant you passage for you are now the voice of us fallen would be modders.
Indeed, perhaps their interest was previously piqued, but with this drop, it peaked XD This is a pretty cool drop though. If I didn't already have a custom loop, I would probably jump on it. The parts in this kit are fairly high quality, and each component is pretty easily replaceable which is nice.
