XSPC RASA Radiator for the HAF X

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
im about to get the RX240 kit for my 980x, i want to mount it on top but im afraid it might block access to the ram because the RX is double the thickness of the RS, so i was thinking of getting the RS360 to make up for it, but jab tech and all other places dont have the RS 360 in a kit

any ideas on how to solve my dilemma?

any input is appreciated, thanks

I would have to say that is personal opinion, seeing as 100's of people here alone have not had problems with those barbs.

But I do understand doing what makes you feel safe sometimes its worth the money to not have to worry.

edit: +1 for the Rasa RX360 kit, wonderfully easy kit to use. I was a first time watercooler last week on a first time build, and it just made sense on how to use the kit. And everything came with it that I needed. Though i did buy primochill black tubing

edit 2: P.s. I use just an rs360 for my i5, it is clocked at 4.7 and the hottest core gets just under 60 degrees when running prime for hours. And the RX does much better than the RS. Plus the HAF X is MADE for a 360 up top. Took me one try to understand how to set everything up

edit 3: lol Here is the rs360 to an alternative to Jab-Tech, frozen cpu is just as well known.
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12..._Kit-_HOT.html

use this code for 5% off, pcapex

But, most people don't have problems with the RX360 up top clearing the ram. I wish I had gone for it instead of the RS, i went with the RS basically because they didn't have the RX at frozen cpu and I just didn't know any better.

thanks for all the replies! after seeing some other haf X owners, i saw some had their 360 rad's hooked up inside the top compartment, can the RX360 do that? Thats very neat utilization of space, what 360 rads can fit inside the top compartment?
post #8 of 17
The RS360 may do that as its thinner than the RX360.

^ yeah i was thinking exactly that

so is it a generally accepted idea that the the RS360 is better than the black ice GT Stealth 360?

Yes probably. Why would you do that in such a large case? Then you can't do push/pull effectively? You have the room for a 360 underneath, with fans on both sides if you do it the normal way
