I'm sorry I misspelled your name ezveedub. I guess I'm getting tired. It's been a long day.

Wow... +1 for XSPC customer service. Send them a video of my noisy pump, 3 days later I have a brand new pump/res combo sitting in my hands, free of charge, no questions asked.
The new pump is quiet.
Ahhh so much nicer to listen too, the old one sounded like it had rocks in it. It finally drove me over the edge after 7 months.

I am very pleased!

Yeah, they have good support in the way of replacing those pumps. I wonder if they would have saved money not skimping on the pump in the first place.

I'm thinking of switching to water cooling, after already having spent almost 200 on 2 air coolers.

I was thinking of getting the RS360 kit. I just ordered a Corsair H100, but am considering cancelling it, if this kit is worth the extra 80 bux.

My questions are:

1)Is it worth the $160 CAD, will I see noticeable temp diff from my Ven-X and is it a lot better than the H100 for 100 I just ordered?
2)Is it hard to install? I consider myself pretty handy, but have never attempted water before
3)Will in it fit in my Haf 932 in P/P Config
4)Are the stock fans decent or would my spare CM R4's be better?
5)Is the pump/res really that loud?

Thanks for the help!

My questions are:

1)Is it worth the $160 CAD, will I see noticeable temp diff from my Ven-X and is it a lot better than the H100 for 100 I just ordered?

You will not see any difference in Idle temperatures and ambient temperatures are a huge factor when it comes to Water cooling.

With that said, you will notice very good load temp differences compared to your Ven-X. I would venture to say it performs just a bit better than the H100, especially if you are going CPU only. But the name of the game with the RS360 kit is upgradability.


2)Is it hard to install? I consider myself pretty handy, but have never attempted water before

I installed my first watercooling kit ever this past weekend. It took me a good 8-10 hours. But it was honestly the most fun I had in a while, since I'm pretty hands-on. There is no better feeling to sit back and look at something run that you built from scratch. I'm sure others can attest to this.

The install wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, of course the H100 would be easier. If you want to, you can PM me and I can give you pointers on bleeding the system when you are finally ready to fill it up with water. Make sure to measure twice and cut once with your tubing. You don't want to have to order more.


3)Will in it fit in my Haf 932 in P/P Config

If I'm not mistaken, it will fit in your Haf 932 just fine (you won't be able to fit anything but maybe a fan controller or memory controller in the top 2 5.25" bays though). Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

And you can put the Push fans on the bottom of the radiator and then mount the radiator with the Pull fans outside of the case on top, with a cooling looking shroud. You may have to modify the front panel w/ the 3.5" bay if you want that third fan on the top.


4)Are the stock fans decent or would my spare CM R4's be better?

I'm not sure how fast the CM R4's are, but if you are going with the RS360 radiator, they work best with High-RPM fans. So any fans with ~1800rpm+ will work fine. Decibel-ratings will factor in here.

5)Is the pump/res really that loud?


It is not loud, nor is it quiet. As long as you have your fans on to at least 1200rpm (what I have mine at), it will cancel out the sound of the pump and give you a nice static noise that's not noticeable.


Thanks for the help!

I hope this helps. I would fully recommend the RS360 kit if you have any thoughts of adding in your GPU in the future to your loop.

1.) Up to you, it'll be a bit better than the H100, even more so if you decide to add a gpu to the loop. The performance will be better than an H100, but with just a cpu I wouldn't expect more than 10c if that. (edit: I think 10c is wayyy to much, probably more like 5)

2.) Not really

3.) Yes!

4.) Fans are not half bad, don't know anything about the CM R4s.

5.) No it's not, I can't hear it at all. (if you can hear it something is wrong with it) Nosiest thing in my case is the PSU now.

Alright, I think I just might be getting this kit.

Last set of questions.
1)What do I have to add to the distilled water? Biocide? Kill coil?
2)How does kill coil work do I actually have to loop wire in the tubing?
3)Which of these options is better/Easier to use?
4)What's the difference between the RS240/RX240/RX 360 compared to the RS360?
5)Does the 50 dollar price premium for the RX360 justified by the performance increase over the RS360?

Easiest thing is just to get a Silver Kill Coil and that's all you need.

2)How does kill coil work do I actually have to loop wire in the tubing?

Just drop it in the reservoir and then it is ready to go!

3)Which of these options is better/Easier to use?

Easiest is Silver Kill Coil because you don't have to do the calculations of determining how much PT-Nuke or whatever biocide you have to put in your loop every time you empty out your loop, Kill Coil is a one time deal.

4)What's the difference between the RS240/RX240/RX 360 compared to the RS360?

Size. RS is about 1/2 the size of the RX radiator in terms of thickness. RS requires High-RPM fans. RX can use Medium-RPM fans, but can use High-RPM for even better performance.

More metal = more cooling. So the RX will undoubtedly perform better than a RS can. But for most people, it is a space issue in the top of their case. I would ask in the Official CM Haf 932 thread whether or not you can fit a RX360 in the top or not. I would say yes, but I doubt you can put push fans with it (not really sure).

Good luck on your build. You should probably get some different tubing as well, don't use a dye if you were thinking about it.

I use Primochill UV tubing 7/16" Inner Diameter (snug fit on barb so I don't have to use the ugly clamps).

Let us know what your final loop list looks like!

With the 932 you can fit a RX360 in push/pull, Or like I did RX360 + Rx120 with push fans cool.gif
