Great job with your build! If you didn't say it was your first I'd never would've known. Add your system to the Official RASA Kit Club (see my sig for the link).

Q: What fluid are you using in the loop? If just distilled then you need some kind of Corrosion Blocker and/or Silver KillCoils (1).

Also, the RASA 360 kit can handle the addition of a GPU in one loop, no need for a second unless you're going to SLI 2x GTX590'S. What GPU are you thinking about getting?

Thanks! I did a lot of research, just to make sure I didn't screw anything up.. like I said I've been lurking these forums for a few years now. I have a silver kill coil in there. Other than that, just distilled.

I honestly don't know what gpu/block I am going with. I'm open to hearing a few suggestions, though! Anything from 275-400$ would be reasonable budgetwise.

"You should have waited for..."...
LOL JK! Very nice job and love how everything mounts together correctly. Very nice and clean...
Good job!

Setups like this make me regret my Antec 1200 purchase...

Bulldozer shmulldozer, it's just an illusion in the AMD desert. Just when you think it's here, it disappears to a later date...

I'm partial to the GTX560's and GTX580's. A bit more than you wanna spend, but worth it. I know guys with AMD 6950's and 6970's that are happy with them too. As far as full GPU blocks I'd recommend these in rank: 1) XSPC or DANGER DEN (Copper w/black Acetal), 2) Heatkiller, 3) Aquacomputer. Stay away from anything EK!

My GTX580 DD block cools and looks amazing, and they are a great WC company right here in the USA (Oregon). The block is well crafted, but a bit heavy. The XSPC is lighter, the least expensive, and yet cools very well. The main thing I'd say is for you to stay with copper materials. Some manufacturers are having problems with nickel plating, so I'd just avoid it. Your Rasa CPU block is copper so stick with copper blocks on everything else too. Makes it simpler in your loop chemical wise... which is a good thing.

Have fun!
