I'm going to start by saying that this kit is NOT meant for those just starting out. This is a truly extreme kit and will need dedication when installing, with some previous experience preferred. If I were to rate the difficulty of installing this product, I would have to give it an 8/10, 10 being the hardest.
However, this isn't some cooling kit you just throw in and go. It requires time and attention when installing. I spent around eight hours installing and testing it, including the case modification on the back for the tubing holes. Aside from that, it was within a time frame I would have expected. Water cooling installation isn't something you rush, and I prefer to take my time and be safe--not sorry.
All three, MCW50, MCW20-R, and the MCW5000 R2 water blocks are truly superb! I was extremely impressed with each one's performance and construction. Swiftech has definitely made cooling the Northbridge chipset easy and efficient--it's about time someone came out with a real chipset block!
As for the MCW5000 R2 CPU block, I can't say enough. It is possibly one of the finest CPU water blocks on the planet. Because of the Patent Pending design and quality copper, its competitors are sometimes left in the dust by comparison. Alongside this, Swiftech uses Quick Connects on all water blocks, and I've never had one of these guys leak. This alone makes installation smooth for the end-user.
Everything needed is provided in the kit, from screws to washers, so you won't be held up by running out or ordering extra bits. When it comes to the 'stuff' needed, Swiftech never falls short.
