XSPC RASA Radiator for the HAF X - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
i see you have a HAFX with the rs360, have you ever tried trying to fit the rad on top?

with the rad in the upper compartment, it looks very neat and out of the way, also i can work on the motherboard with more space.

i thought the upper compartment was designed to fit a 360 rad?

I have carpet so the bottom vents are blocked

thanks for all the help

If you're setting up a push/pull configuration you'd have to use 25mm thick fans with the RX360 and a top mount configuration. I personally just use a push config with 25mm thick fans and there's plenty of clearance. This is with the HAF 932, but if my memory serves me correctly, they're set up the same up top. GL and if I'm wrong, someone please correct me!

so is it a generally accepted idea that the the RS360 is better than the black ice GT Stealth 360?
Its thicker so I think it would be likely a better performer.

I have not tried to fit the rs360 up top, seeing as it is 35 mm thick, and I have 25 mm fans up there right now... maybe it could fit? there is still a good amount of room above my fans and the top case.

Then you would just do a push config with 3 120 on bottom, they wouldnt go up snug against the rad though( because of the cross beams), which ive heard is ideal for push.

But honestly I can't say for sure if it would fit. Maybe someone else knows better.

BUT if you want my honest opinion (again) is that you should do it the standard way, get an RS if you are worried about space, have have it setup in push pull. I have my fans SOOOO quite like this and get great temps and still plenty of room to work on my MB

After long deliberation, i have decided to get this set up

XSPC 750 Res+pump
Apogee XTL block
New tubing (primoflex)
Black Ice GTS 360
2 Gentle Typhoons 3000RPM (ive heard they were the best for rads?)
1 Excalibur PWM, so it fan speed will increase as heat goes up
primochill blood red coolant
bitspower fittings

Thanks for all the help

Doesn't sound bad, but why the XT-L istead of the XT?
And why 2 3k rpm fans and 1 PWM fan? You'll hear the other two non-stop... Much better option is get 3 fast (~2200rpm) fans and a PWM controller that will take the signal from your mobo to speed up or slow down all three fans. I use one, the Rheosmart6, and it's simple to set up and works like a charm.

And I'm sure you know, but everyone hates colored dyes, and will recommend getting colored tubing, not colored dyes. Since nothing in your loop is see-through except your reservoir (and perhaps tubing?), why not get red tubing and put a red LED behind your reservoir to make it look red. That way you don't have to worry about whether dyes gunk up blocks or stain the insides of your components or not?

And if you insist on watercooling your ram, because it looks badass (it's okay to admit it ) I'd just go for the Koolance, but I would probably split it at a Y junction before and after the ram channels, so that half the flow goes through one set and half through the other, so they don't restrict flow as much.
