    Glad to see they now have a dual 140mm kit now. I will probably get this as my first water cooling setup when I have the time and money.

    I'm sorry, but why does this line of kits exist? It's supposedly easier than the Extreme kit counterpart. Is that because it has two fewer compression fittings? :confused:

    Why is the easier/cheaper Performance kit only $10(240mm)/$17(360mm) cheaper than the Extreme counterpart? The P kits come with two fewer fittings which are easily worth $6-9 a piece. So if everything else was the same, they should be at least $40 cheaper because you're receiving cheaper/less hardware. Am I missing something?

    X240's unique hardware
    X3 150: $55
    DDC 3.2 PWM Elite: $116
    CoolStream XE240: $76
    ACF 10/13mm Fitting: $52
    Total: $299

    P240's unique hardware
    XRES 140 Revo D5 PWM: $158
    CoolStream PE240: $62
    ACF 10/13mm Fitting: $39
    Total: $259
