Watercooling advice

hey all.

So i scored a new case, Thermaltake Kandalf Black with watercooling. The problem is that the watercooling wasn't working as the pump is broken. The Metal section that sits under the mobo is also pretty worn.

I was wondering what would be the best option for this.

I dont need watercooling, and i am not sure i plan to overclock, but then again i have all the parts (bar a few) there.

Would i be better off leaving it as is, or set up watercooling
Then, if setting up watercooling, which pump should i look at (cheaper the better), where can i buy the extra bracker (Quad core CPU) and would i be better off just replacing the whole cooling system?

Thanks
Stephen

You got it brand new, or bought it off someone?

If it was new, then return it for a replacement.

If you bought it secondhand, then you can look into replacement parts if you wanted to watercool it. I'll leave the parts recommendations to other people, but check CPUs and Cooling for some other threads/suggestions.

Thermaltake pumps is the most easy to have a problem with, they made it very cheap. go get a new pump.

As i recently found out ... my P500 pump died after 12 months and 5 days .. thank god the warranty is for 24 months.

But when they only cost about $40 for the pump alone you cant ask for too much.

My advice if your not going to over clock at all,
Then you would be better of just moving to high end air cooling
such as the thermal right true 120 heat sink.

or if you really want to continue with the water cooling then id suggest getting a Laing D5 Vario 12 volt (www.radiical.com.au)

but as frunji said figure out if you can get it replaced under warranty
it'll cost more in time and pain but less in money :)

if you don't intend overclocking, why bother even changing the stock cooler?

i have watercooling system, it's just too much hassle to built and dismantle, should you want to upgrade or have problem with your pc.
my suggestion, that case is good, especially since you got it for free. my suggestion, just forget the watercooling, and stick with air cooling.

thats ok. it was more a case of "i got it, so should i use it"? . i think the effort will not be worth it..
