This is for my system in my sig!
The pump is starting to make a bit of noise from time to time!
Its creeping up on 4 yrs old with almost 24/7 run time.

Does anyone have a self contained H2O setup thats been reliable
and they would recommend as a pretty much direct replacement for a factory AMD 9590 setup?

ASUS Crosshair V- Formula Z - AMD 9590H2O
16G GSkill RipJaw - CoolerMaster Seidon cooler
Corsair RM750X - Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD
ASUS BW-12B1ST BD Burners(X2)
EVGA 560ti SC
ASUS 27" LED LCD monitor
Corsair 600T case

I have a Thermaltake Water 2.0 on my old core i7-3770K and it has been rock solid for all these years. Recently started having a bit of trouble with one of the fans not wanting to get going but kicking it to high speed and then back down makes it purr along (kind of like me as I get older lol). The 3.0 is out and has a 3 year warranty I believe so pretty decent in my book!

Anyway i would say to look at Thermaltake or even another CoolerMaster since yours has done so well.

I have the Lepa Exllusion 240 and it is a great cooler. Got it about 3 months after release and still going at full speed. I have only used mine for 4-6 hours a day with pump at 100%/4000rpm 25% above its rated max speed. Even Enermax have said its rare for a pump to far exceed its rated speed but not uncommon to exceed its rated speed within 10%. Still, I'm am one of few that got lucky. got my i7 2600k (5ghz 1.416v) running 65c at 100% load on occt linpack after 30mins testing.

Best cooler I have used even though I recently tested a Corsair h150i and Thermaltake water 3.0. Both were great coolers but got my 2600k to 70c(Corsair h150i) and 68c (Thermaltake Water 3.0) and 65c (Lepa Exllusion 240) which all three hit after 10mins and remained at for another 20mins before ending the test. This was done with Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. Surprised the h150i and Water 3.0 didn't beat the Exllusion.

The only set back of the Lepa is the price but the £100 I paid over here proved best cost/performance as the h150i is £150 and Water 3.0 £120 in the UK. Get what ever Corsair or Thermaltake or Lepa you can reasonably afford. All will cooler fantastically but Lepa wins me over surprisingly.

The Thermaltake Water 3.0 is a good option also.

I'm thinking this will make a nice replacement for my ailing CoolerMaster! ... 11&t=46802
I guess the side panel may not make it back on! Corsair 600T has no window! :(
Hmmm, maybe it's time for a new case!?!

For me, its more for the cooling performance than the RGB!
The RGB is just an added bonus!

my rig sets 2 feet from my head when I sleep. I blacked out any LED I could find on my system. Helps for the nights I leave the thing running to crunch on downloads (DSL Sucks) or trans-coding.
