Thanks
What temps are you getting?

In the future I might add another RX120 (or 240) if need be.

My i7 get's to 68c on the hottest core, And 5 mins of furmark at 960/1375 get's my 6990 to 54c core 1, And 56c core 2 with a 21c room temp. Work's well for me

if you shop around some you can find the stuff cheaper

and when people talk about getting better clamps for the rasa kit they are talking about worm clamps like these http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/brmihocl7int.html

you can use this instead of a kill coil http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/peptpcobi1.html
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/sikibyia.html there's a cheaper kill coil if you still want to use one

Those CPU temps sound kinda high. I don't know much about what temps I can expect but I thought overclocked i7's generally get loads in the 50's.

Thank you

If I buy those components from Sidewinder, I save about $5 after shipping costs. (I would assume. I haven't taken into consideration FrozenCPU's 5% discount code yet)

Get MCW60's or MCW80's for the gpu blocks. You can get them on here or ebay for $20 or so for the 60s and $35 for the 80's. Get 33c and 35c on my 570s with them.

Im at 4.329GHz (HT On) 1.36v full load, So 68c on the hottest core is really good from what I have seen. The rest of the cores are at 65c. If you get 50c with a H50 @4.0 1.3v you must have a really cool running i7 or you haven't fully loaded that i7 Have you tryed Intel Burn Test to see what your max temps are?

I meant with a full loop, 50's were typical. I haven't done IBT on my current system in a while, and plus my TIM application needs reapplication so my loads are likely to be in the 70's or even 80's with summer ambients.

Since I'm using the XSPC kit pump I want to have the most flow and least restriction possible, with the amount of blocks I'm using. If you can prove to me that I can run MCW80's on two GPUs and a Rasa CPU block on the XSPC kit pump, I will be more than happy to buy it.

Edit: the EK VGA Supreme HF is $3 more expensive new.

Gaming my i7 has never gone over 56c, And my 6990 from 45c to 52c. I was telling you my full out load temps

I think the kit is probably the cheapest way to get a CPU block, pump, res and and rad all in one but the idea that this setup will satisfactorily dissipate the heat generated by an OC'd quad-core CPU and 2 GPUs in addition under load is dubious. Notice that the RX360 only claims to be capable of cooling a multi-core CPU, not that plus 2 high-wattage GPUs.

Personally, I'd get an extra 240XT rad ($60) for the GPUs, run CPU -> kit rad -> GPUs -> 240XT -> reservoir and that should suffice. Sure, it's ADDING to the cost not subtracting, but it'll save you some frustration in having to take the setup apart and pay shipping twice when you realize that the single rad won't cut it.
