Replacing the inferior Rasa components....

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey OCN.

I knew once I bought the Rasa kit I would eventually begin to part out some of the components. I know the CPU block is pretty damn good, and I'm kind of stuck on my rad situation... So... few questions

1. I ran out of blue tubing, and had to use some of the clear crap that came with the kit, look at what color it has turned... Replace?

2. Replace dual bay res with MCP355 and a simple cyndrical res? Would a better pump=better temps?


Pic for reference

Yes, replace the tubing if your going for looks. If you dont care about what it looks like, leave it. It is 100% just like normal unless the tubing is wearing.

A better pump would definitely = better temps. The liquid is flowing faster!

You can use the XSPC dual bay reservoir for DDC or D5 pump. Same configuration you use now, just swap the res with either pump you want to use. I use the XSPC DDC res with Bmaervick DDC-1T pump now on my signature system.

As for tubing, I would get some to replace that stock piece you have now.

I would definitely start w/ a better pump. Replacing it with a better pump won't necessarily gain you better temps. Well 1-2C at most. But it should be more reliable and give you room to add more blocks in the future.

You do not need to replace the tubing unless you care about what it looks like. I would...

A new pump wouldn't give much better temps. If it does, it will be very little. A couple degrees at most. It would let you add more blocks to your loop in the future... Maybe another 570 or something...

The rad is one of the best around, especially the RX series, so keep that.

The pump is good, comparable to a mcp 655B, though they don't have the best reliability record. Still, xspc cs will help with that.

The tube is a crap shoot. Some people are reporting that it clouds and looks nasty. So I wouldn't mind investing a little bit and getting better tube. Amazon has a great deal on 10' of primochill tube for $16.


I owned the pump and I never had a problem with it. I eventually sold it since I was planning six blocks and that was too much to ask for this pump and I didn't want kill it when I added the blocks. I've owned three rs360s, one rx360, one rx240, and currently own two rx480 and I've been more than pleased with their performance and great value. I also currently own the rasa cpu block and its performing extremely well.

RX480??? I've never heard of that. Where from?

The only time you will get better temps with a DDC or D5 is if your flow rate was below 1GPM. Once you get to about 1.3-1.5GPM, anything after that will not show any temp improvements.

Inferior is a rather harsh descriptor for the best budget kit out there. I won't lie, this title bugs me.
