Corsair H70 or a XSPC Rasa Kit? - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Get an H70. I really didn't see much improvement from going from H70 to full watercooling.
If you are to watercool gpu too though, go for the xpsc kit.

You could also wait for the H80/H100.

Get the RAZA. H70 is not that great. I have tried them all H50, H60, H70, and Antec 620, 920 and from all of them i liked 920 best if you are not going to go with RASA kit. Personally RASA all the way.

Rasa kit without question man. I got the 360 kit and couldnt be happier. I upgraded from a H50. Granted small rad vs big rad, but still massive improvement in temps. Dropped about 30c with my 920 at 4ghz when i upgraded to the rasa kit (was running about 65c with h50). I would assume the H70 temps wouldnt be all that much better, maybe just by a few degrees.

Quoted for truth. There's hardly any difference between medium and high speed fans on RX ras. They're really thick but have low thin density. The RS rads on the other hand, are much thinner but they have a higher fin density.

Wait for the H80/H100 or the current antec 620/920 are both better currently

You're going to be going with a CPU loop only for now, but if you decide to add a GPU then you'll likely need to add an external radiator to the mix if you don't mod or get a new case. If you don't think you'll be willing to mod or put up with an external rad for future upgrades, then just go with one of the sealed units.

If you do want the option of GPU or motherboard cooling in the future, then definitely go for the rs240 (or rx240 if it will fit).

The main value of a custom loop is that the parts will last you a long while and it gives you far more options than a sealed unit ever will. It's also quieter and cools far more efficiently the higher you overclock.

Well basically I want to get my i5-2500K to 4ghz and above. maybe 4.3 as im not overly experienced with OC, Will they Corsair be able to handle this..? I dont like my temperatures going above 60 degrees at Prime95 load.

Im also kinda worried about it leaking. I know you can use the non static water.. but still. Ive never done this sort of thing before

The temp depends more on what voltage you use than what frequency the CPU is. But i'd say you could probably get to 4.3 with 1.25v unless you are pretty lucky. I think even the Hxx will be able to handle that.

And that non-conductive coolant will eventually become conductive when exposed to, well... air, tubing, and dust.

The h70 will definitely be able to handle an overclocked i5 2500k, but the max temps depend on your OC and your ambient temps.. A rasa kit will always give you better temps the higher you OC though, but it still depends on your ambient temps and what your OC is. Your temps will increase or decrease with your room temps, so if you wanna keep it under 60 at all times with either coolers, you will have to find your average room temps and adjust accordingly.

You don't have to worry about leaking if you properly tighten your barbs and examine your tubing carefully. The kit comes with a PSU adapter that makes leak testing incredibly easy, so that's really no problem.

Well since its nearly winter here at the moment ambient is about 20 degrees celcius. So i may just get the h70 till summer rolls around because it gets up to 30 to 40 degrees in my room in summer. but i have an aircon so either way, i guess its down to preference and convenience?
