Ordered a rasa 750...some questions

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey, guys...so I just ordered a XSPC rasa 750 and I just have a few questions. I'm new to do it yourself water cooling (750 is replacing a H50) and I'm curious on how much coolant I need. I'm going to be using a single loop. I was looking at this: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/12...tl=g30c337s888 , but I don't know how many bottles I need to get to fill my loop. Also, what's the best loop arrangement?

Instead of paying $15 dollars for the coolant, just buy distilled water from the grocery store for a couple of dollars. It'll be alot better for your loop. No gunk builing up with distilled water. If you use coolant, you run the risk of the red dye getting into and clogging your loop.

A lot of people say to use distilled water with biocide or killcoil.

distilled water is $1.50 a gallon where i live (@wallgreens)

add a silver kill coil or biocide and you are good to go... no need for expensive coolant.. sometimes if it's colored, it could even clog up your blocks over time

Use the 15 bucks towards replacing your tubing with colored tubing instead. I've heard the tubing that comes with gets cloudy and is no good.

Whatever you decide in the end, distilled or coolant, a single loop will need 1 liter apox.

Ok I'll just go ahead and grab some distilled water. It's not advertised, but when you add the kit to your cart you get one free silver kill coil, which I'll use. Also, I forgot to mention that I bought white tubing for the kit. I think it will look really nice in my white 600t. Also, for the cooling method, with the 600t I'll be mounting the rad internally at the top of the case, should the fans be exhausting or intaking?

I would say exhausting!, unless you want to use dust filters.

the fans should be blowing the air from the case out the top

Ok would the fans pulling the air out yield the best results?
