I love the liquid cooling (custom) idea, but I want to make sure that all the components are working and no rma's needed.. Plus school will be starting for me in a few weeks and I want this build to be complete and up to par BEFORE then!
I figure the side panel mods and the LED's would be a project that I could complete in short order without having my main pc down at all..
Keep the suggestions coming!!!!
I will post more parts pron tomorrow when the shipments get here!
2 ezy if u r only planing on wc the cpu than the h100 is more than up to the job thay are good i just cant justify that a all in one wc is dearer than the xspc rasa kit
you could make sure that all the components are working and no rma's needed under air coolers like a stock intel cooler than once u know u r o.k install the water kit
it may sound a little daunting constructing a kit for the first time
but if u are scared of it leaking when u fill for testing just leave it empty and test with a bike pump or something of the sort and if u hear air leaking from a fitting or the loop don't hold pressure look into it and the fact that the rasa kit has 7/16" hosing and 1/2" barbs its realy hard to get a leak as the hose has to be stretched over the barbs as the barbs are larger than the hosing this kit is an entry kit to make it all ezy for uwhy pay more money for a worst performing product that is what it is and cant be expanded
h100 $160........ xspc rasa kit $139
not trying to offend or pressure u into it but once u have the W.C bug u got it for life
ow and if u r using destilled water or a good non conductive coolant if it leaks it will do nothing or just shut it down dry it out and put it back together and your on your way again
i have gone to bed with a system running and when i woke the next morning i thort why is my puter off then i noticed the puddle on my desk
the res had cracked over night and drained my intyer look ther was evan a puddle on my vga cards and it pored its way down threw the pci slots striped it thrue them on the bench till the next day and put it back together and wola all good no damage
that was my best leak so far but i have had many leaks over my time as i use non conductive coolants or a killcoil and distilled water
dry it out and throw it back together nock on some wood and hit that power buttonEdited by skitzab1 - 4/18/12 at 9:45pm
