Got the XSPC Rasa RX240 kit, what now?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I heard cleaning it before installing is a good idea, with warm water, or distilled water?
Also should it go pump/res -> rad -> CPU -> then back to pump/res?
or switch rad and cpu order?

Loop order doesn't matter, whatever allows you to use the least tubing with the least sharp bends in it. Always use distilled+PT Nuke or a Killcoil.

Yes, be sure to clean out all of the parts that will have water going through. I cleaned everything except the tubing and noticed some debris in there within a month. It almost impossible to see unless you look for it but its been driving me crazy ever since.

I think all rasa kits come with with free kill coils if you order them from frozen cpu. If not, most online PC stores have them

edit: Didn't see the part about being from Australia. Not sure in that case.

No there is no noticeable advantage. You will see the best temps simply taking my suggestion and ordering your loop for the most efficient and short tubing routing.

There won't be much of a difference at all.
I would not recommend using the tubing that comes with the Rasa kits.
You should flush the rad.
