Good Watercooling Kit for under $200 CDN?

Hey everyone. I was wondering if there are any known complete watercooling kits (since im lazy) known to man that are effective AND have a low price tag? I'm also looking for it to be under $200 CDN. Thanks for your help!

Edit: I forgot to add that it has to fit in an ANTEC LANBOY.

It depends on what processor you have. Are you going to cool just the CPU or are you going to get the chipset blocks and AGP blocks as well?

The Asetek Waterchill kits are very popular and not too expensive.

Thanks for your replies! Yes right now I'm on a 1.8 GHZ Intel Pentium 4. I'd also prefer both the CPU waterblock and another one for the video card (9800 Pro). Any more kits out there?

I'm using a Koolance Exos which is an external unit and very easy to fit.

Ah I see, since the Koolance Exos is external, it'll surely save a lot of space inside the case. One thing though is, where can I find that watercooling system near Toronto (in Canada?). I can't seem to find any stores or places where I can purchase one from.

Thanks, looks quite expensive since the kit excludes the waterblocks, but I'll try to get the money. If you have any pictures of your rig with the Koolance on it, please send it to my email at mcgi@sympatico.ca. Thanks a bunch!

Edit: Looks like it's going to be a bit too far to get it from the store, so might as well buy it online. PCToyland looks like a good choice so far, considering it's only $179.95 USD.

Ah I see, nice pictures. I was considering getting that Zalman cooler as a matter of fact, but I'll probably get the Koolance watercooling unit somehow, either online or traveling to the retail store in Ontario. Thanks again for your help!

BTW, one more thing, is it worth the money for the Aluminum version of this cooler, and what differences are there from the black one? The difference is about $30 US and that converts to around 40 Canadian here.

You could also build your own waterchiller. Get a 4liter container a small pond pump some tubing and some waterblocks and you got yourself a waterchiller. Check out what BOD did. http://aoaforums.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24665

The Alu version won't make any difference to temps. The unit is lighter than the steel one. I got the Alu to match my case.

Ah Alright. Aluminum sure helps in terms of mobility, and since i have a LANBOY, it would go pretty well. However, I won't be wasting money for looks and portability, just the cooling power. Thanks for the help, I'll be purchasing one of these on eBay, including the CPU waterblock and VGA waterblock.

I just found another watercooling kit that I think is decent, and it is from Coolermaster. It's called the "Aquagate". I'd like to hear your opinions about this cooling system before I purchase the Koolance / Aquagate depending on your suggestions. Thanks again.

I think the Koolance is the better of the two.

for me....
you gotta build your own kit.
IMHO each company has it's strengths and weaknesses....
i prefer dangerden for blocks and rad, but you can use almost anything.


i regards to the aquagate...
it will provide decent cooling, but if ya wanna overclock....make a water chiller or add a rad...remember that that unti fits inside 2 drive bays... so you know there is not a ton a airflow in there.
in regards as to where to purchase items in Canada, you can try www.bigfootcomputers.com/ ... and you can COD from them

or canadacomputers.com....they're in toronto themselves i believe, and them have done me real well in the past.
