Go with rasa kit or assemble other parts?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Ive been looking into watercooling and ive seen many amazing things in this

thread. My main question, starting out in watercooling, Should i buy a rasa kit

or something of a similar nature. Or should I get the different parts separately.

If so what parts should I be on the lookout for and what are the best dealers?

Thanks for taking the time to look at this thread its much appreciated.

The rs360 will allow you to run CPU plenty well (and will even allow you to add a vga card if you so wish). One thing, I'd recommend replacing the tubing (the stuff they send tends turn a milky color after a couple of months) any feser, primochill, koolance tubing will do. Also if you are making tight turns, looking to some primoChill antikink coil. Don't forget some kill coil or PT nuke if you are running distilled water.

In regards to rs360 kit itself, remember the rs is for lower rpm fans, if you are running above about 1600 rpm, move up to the RX (louder but better cooling).

I think the RASA kits are really good in getting you on your feet for a good price (a virtual steal really) and will give you a good base if you ever want to expand your loop. Happy watering

I think you got that opposite. RX is for lower RPM fans. For RS you need higher RPM.

I'm not so sure, the RS has a single row of fins at a low FPI if I recall.

Build a custom. None of these kits can touch my temps and low noise level. It is more expensive but if you are gonna watercool you might as well do it right. Plus i think the skinner tubing of the premade kids look kinda goofy. That's my opinon.
