Corsair H70 or a XSPC Rasa Kit?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
So i was pretty set on a H70 as an aircooler wont fit in my new case with a side fan (which im going to need).

Then i noticed at how expensive they were.. and how comparable the XSPC Rasa Kit's were.

I wont be overclocking initially but i do intend to in the near future so cooling is definately needed,

I will have a i5-2500K on an AUS z68 pro. I wouldnt go any bigger than a 240 radiator..

So would be the H70 be better or the XSPC Rasa Kit.? I understand the convience arguement but It wont really bother me.. as i want to progress in learning.

The site i will be buying from is here

I would appreciate specific suggestions. Thanks in advance

The rasa will cool your cpu better than the h70. Also, with the rasa you'll be able to upgrade down the road by buying new watercooling parts rather than buying a whole new cooler.

How are the quality of them?

Whats the different between an RS240 and an RX240? is it just a thicker radiator?

The thicker Radiator will cool much better, however you have to use higher RPM fans (louder) to have it work to its potential

go for the RX360.
nice thick rad, and plenty of cooling power.

You'll only run a few degrees warmer using medium speed fans and it will be much quieter. The RX series radiators were designed to be used with low to medium speed fans.

Im getting the NZXT phantom. I wont really have room for a 360. only a 240 as far as i know

RASA kit for sure if peformance is what you are looking for.

For space saving, definitely get the H70.

It is always hard to get the best of both worlds!

RX240 kit ($170), just switch out the garbage stock tubing and buy 7 feet of Tygon or colored Primochill ($15). You'll also need a kill coil ($6).
