His issues. Not the kits fault, things like not clamping the tubes enough, not having the barb tightened enough leak issues .

If you have room why not, an rs360? It should perform slightly better then the rx240.

I was also looking at that kit but it's about $40 more and the temp difference from what I've read is only 4 degrees so really not worth it.

4c is a lot man!! 4c is the difference between stable and not stable, the difference between comfortable and borderline. I buy $20 indigo extreme for the 2-3c difference, alone. 4c is huge.

That's up to the person to decide, budgets come into effect to iv personally find 20$ for 2-3 degrees a waste.

Seriously? People spend ample time dissecting the differences and nuances between cpu blocks for 1/2 degree difference. Indigo on it's own nets 2-3c, on it's own. and you find it's a waste lol.

When you've maxed out your loop, and you need to get lower temps still... what to do? Yea... ugh hmmm. My point isn't even necessarily about indigo extreme, it's that 4c is a lot of difference.

People isn't everyone. I don't really see the point of spending more then needed . 40$ means I have more gas money, more money for food.

Honestly $40 for 4 degrees isn't worth it if you run push/pull on the RS it gets the same temps as the RX with 2 fans cheaper. So it just isn't necessary.
