    lo guys,does any1 know anythin bout those new alphacool kits on the cooling section.

    would it be worth the upgrade to 1 of these from stock cooling(venice 3200+)or **** i just invest in a quality air cooler like a a/c pro 64?

    cheers in advance ;)

    get an XP-120 with a nice 120mm fan, temp stays @ 29-31 idle - 38 - 45 under load

    Alphacool make some very good products. The Nexxos XP block is only beaten by the Storm and arguably the Apogee.

    Worthy upgrade? Depends on what you class as worthy!

    would it worthy in the sense of keepin my system cool and maybe stable if i o/c'd

    aint got a huge budget so i couldnt afford to buy the swiftec et al kits for £100 + but if it was any good i could proberly stretch to buy this kit.

    would it be a waste of cash spendin bucks on a basic kit,or just get a descent air cooler?is there likely 2 b much differance in temps between the 2 (air and water?)

    Watercooling if done properly can give you lower temps / quietness / higher overclocks, compared to air cooling.

    You can get a decent 2nd hand kit for less than £80. It's up to you to do the reseach and see what, or even, if, watercooling is for you!
