Build me a loop :) - Page 3

post #21 of 24
I still stand by my RX360 view if you want silence. Low RPM fans wouldn't be able to push through the fin density of the RS360... think of the black ice radiator in the image I posted earlier with low RPM fans. Just horrible. But whatever floats your boat.

Might want to get rid of those fittings that come in stock with your XSPC Rasa.

And you should probably get 1/2" ID 3/4" OD compression fittings and tubing.. it should cost the same, no matter what size you get. Larger size = higher flow.

Well, the way I see it, a 360 rad of any size should be more than enough for just my cpu, so why not save space? The rx360 is a huge nasty rad, and since this thing is going to be hanging off the back of my case, I think I would be better off with a thinner rad. And the fin density on the rs rads isn't that bad, they are still made for quieter fans. No where near as dense as the black ice rads iirc.

Those xspc fittings come with the block free of charge.

And I hear 7/16 hose is a better choice because it grabs the barbs better for a tighter fit. Also, 7/16 hose is cheaper, so are the fittings.

Well, whatever, But if you ask basically anyone in the XSPC Rasa thread here which rad is better for silence, I guarantee everyone will say the RX

As the tight fit on barbs are true, I don't think it would be worth it to change all the tubing and compression fittings to an nonstandard size just because of two measly barbs. That's right, not only 7/16" ID rotaries are hard to come by, they are also harder to sell, and offer less flow than 1/2" ID. For watercooling, the two standard sizes for barbs are 3/8" and 1/2", 7/16" being right in the middle of them. If I don't know better, I would assume 7/16" tubing only came into play because somebody found out that they are a good fit on 1/2" barbs, and then the barb competition came in and look the 7/16" market.
7/16" is a minority size in the world of watercooling.

I am pretty sure that everywhere I looked, XSPC 1/2" ID 3/4" OD costs the same amount as 7/16" ID 5/8" OD. Where are you buying from?


Trust me, spending the extra $10 to upgrade to a 1/2" ID 3/4" OD tubing/compression fitting will be worth it in the long run. Before you buy however, make sure that the XSPC compression fittings (they are low profile, meaning that chances are they are larger in diameter) will fit side by side on the XSPC Rasa waterblock. Standard 1/2" ID 3/4" OD compression fittings do fit, just they are extremely close together.

If you insist on getting a thin rad then why not get a Swiftech MCR320, it performs a bit better than RS360.
