H220x because it allows you to incorporate more parts later

Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

Go with the h220-x. I asked the same question a few months ago and everyone said go with the swiftech which was honestly the right decision since I haven't had any issues with it yet and keeps my 8320 cool.

STOP using prime95 with Haswell CPUs!

I have sent my glacer 240l back twice already for pump failures....just got it back for the second time we will see how it goes.  If it was me I would skip on the 240l.  When it is working it is great though :)

H220/X and the Glacer share the same pumps and cavitation issues associated

with these items.

if looking to "expand" later, the just consider a simple CPU loop now and add-on

later when funds/hardware is available. there isn't that much help/savings starting

with and AIO to add more to it. in the long run, you fare better in a custom than

a starter AIO. less pump problems and more enjoyment.
