Might take the plunge into water

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
So after looking between the
H100 / Swiftech H220 / RASA RS240

It looks like the RS240 will be the best option as it may be easier to mount the rad at the bottom of my case.

I want to run push/pull AP-15s on the RAD and the bottom of my CM690 seems to the only viable option. After looking at some guys H100 setups I am not sure if the cables are long enough to reach my case so I started looking at the Swifttech kit which is a great kit but way overpriced for it's cooling ability.

I'm currently trying to find out if the H100 will indeed reach the bottom of my case from another user. If not then the RASA RS240 kit seems to be the best option as far as price/performance goes.

I want to order it from Frozencpu as I can get a 15% discount from them
I just wanted to find out if the stuff I am thinking of ordering with it is any good.

So It will be,
1x XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit
1x Feser - Ultra Pure Water
1x FREE IandH KillCoils - Antimicrobial Silver
1x Feser - VS.C Heat Carrier
1x Feser - Corrosion Blocker

That would be everything I'll need to setup this kit to run 100%?

For rasa go distilled water. With the kill coil. The feser stuff isn't needed.

I understand the Feser water might be overkill but what about the other two things?
1x Feser - VS.C Heat Carrier
1x Feser - Corrosion Blocker

Does the Heat Carrier drop temps at all?

Not needed period. Distilled water and a biocide like a silver coil or pt nuke is all that's needed. You don't need any of the feser stuff.

Aight so all I'd need to get for that kit is the distilled water from the local chemist or w/e since the killcoil comes free.

Is the pump audible if your case cover is closed?

Most drug stores will have distilled. I haven't heard of it being to loud. I get my rasa kit in december. :l so I can't say how loud it is other then reviews.

I go to frag lans quite a bit would it be safe to transport this kit? Like put the PC on its side in a car boot etc ?

Should I get anything else with the kit to improve it? I won't be running it on anything other then my CPU and don't plan to use it on my GPU. So Dyes etc are always a bad idea? If you don't want to do maintenance often?

Walmart, or any market/supermarket should have them too.

I would try up right in the back seat. Friend travels with his rig on its side fine.. Gets air bubbles somehow though. ( could be an improper setup. I know he's had a few leak issues.)

Leak issues when he transported or leak issues from when he installed it? I mean it looks like a simple kit to install and the fittings are quite tight etc.
