    Are AHANIX IceBerg WATER COOLER KIT, any good?

    I'm new to watercooling and I'm not sure if I should shell out $249 for the INNOVATEK COMPLETE WATER COOLING KIT - SET2 - IN-WC-SET2 or get experience by going w/ the Iceberg for $99. Any inputs would be greatly appreciated.

    I have no personal experience with either, but I found a few reviews:

    Iceberg:
    here
    here
    and here

    Innovatek:
    here
    here
    here
    and here

    So let us know which one you go with, cause I'm shopping too! (unless I decide to go phase change, like prometia or vapochill....)

    I've had a look, and I'm unimpressed by the Iceberg. It is better than air cooling if that sites stats are to be believed, and I do like the res/pump setup, so if you're watercooling for noise reasons its probably a good bet. If you're going for better temps though, I'd get the Innovotek.

    Very impressed by the Innovatek.



    (sorry to screw up your page layout with that pic if you are on <1024x768, BTW)

    If you do a search for "Innovatek" and the username "MuFu", there's quite a long thread about it somewhere. Cost me ~120 here in the UK early this year. I know that the current kit is substantially upgraded from the version I have, but $249?! Seems like a lot of money. I guess since it's all German-engineered you guys get hammered on price a little (makes a change, lol).



    If you do go for a decent watercooling setup it's really nice to have your fans on pots so you can vary their speed. You can often get away with turning all the fans off when browsing etc and just let the pump/radiator passively cool the CPU. The silence is eerie.
