What is the best water cooling kit for a AMD 8350-FX? I have looked at Corsair H60, Antec Kuhler, and a Cooler Master Seidon 120 for solutions. Which do you think is best?
The Swiftech H220 is not a closed kit. If OP doesn't want to do maintenance, the H220 is not for him.
OP, for your case, the best one is probably either the NZXT Kraken X40 or the Corsair H90.
Technically the H220 arrives as a closed kit, prefilled, ready to go. You can expand on it if you'd like, in which case you would need to drain the coolant and refill.
Are you looking at the Kuhler 620 or 920? The 920 has a thicker radiator than the 620 and cools a bit better. Otherwise, all three of those are fairly similar so it comes down to price.
FYI, the very best of the self contained kits are the Swiftech H220 and Corsair H100i, in that order.
I'd argue that the H220 is not a closed kit but rather it is available pre-assembled.
