First WC build with RS360. Questions.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So, from what I could tell, for the RS360 I need high rpm fans.
Only going a cpu loop to begin with.
I heard Yate Loon was good, and I wanted a green LED to it. So I found these.

I'm looking to go for a push/pull set up with it and will be installing it in a HAF X case.
Would you consider those good enough?
Also, second question about UV tubing...
I was going to buy purple UV tubing and set up 4 UV cold cathodes in the case to make the tubing "pop" out or whatever.
Do you think all the LED fans would make this not take effect?
I was hoping for a green/purple theme.
I figure 4 UV cathodes would be able to overpower the LED possibly to some degree to let it happen.

All sounds good to me. I have had the RS360 since about the time it came out and it is a great system for the money. My bro just upgraded from the haf-x with 2 4" cold cathodes (no other light source) and it seemed a little lacking but I think with 4 of them it should be plenty. Make sure you get a fan controler for those fans though. With 6 of those going at 2200 RPM it will turn into a jet engine really quick. The cool thing about undervolting LED fans with a fan controler is they get dimmer so when you arent burning it up with a sick OC, you can appreciate the UV tube better with less light. Hope this helped you out.

I really recomend painting the case of your radiator (make sure not to paint the fins). The factory black is crappy at best and it is a great oppertunity to add some customization to your case. Might want to go with the same purple as your tube :-)

Sounds good.
Anyone else with more experience with UV cathodes while using an assortment of LED fans?
There will essentially be five fans total using LEDs. It's the reason why I even ask this question of whether or not the UV cathodes will take effect. Four 120mm and one 200mm.
