Getting ready to order my first loop

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
This is my first time to do this, so if someone could double check me and make sure I'm not making any stupid choices that would be awesome =)

This is going to be a CPU only loop..

4 Feet of Primochill UV Tubing
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/82..._UV_Green.html

2 88cfm Yate Loon UV Led Fans
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/61...2SH-124UB.html

XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Kit
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11..._Kit_-HOT.html

Scythe Kaze Master Ace 525 Fan Controller and Temperature Display
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/83...k_KM02-BK.html

The main thing im concerned about is the hose, and also the fact that those are closed chassis fans.. Also if someone can tell me if theres some extra mounting hardware ill need, please do

You order tubing on 3/8 and barbs are 1/2. So you have to switch for 1/2 tubing or get 3/8barbs. Personally, if I had to chose, I order 1/2 tubing.

Edit: also fan's are include with your kit.
So you're gonna have 4 four fans, right?

You should get 1/2 as 7/16 even if you will have to put clamp. If it's only for an esthetic reason, stuck it with tyrap.
My opinion.

I'm not trying to go clampless, I'm just trying to make for absolute certain that those hoses wont come off for any reason, ever lol

What advantage would there be in 1/2" hose though?

With barbs and clamp, don't worry your hose won't come off, lol.
And advantage is better flow in your loop. First barbs are 1/2 so why don't match with the good tubing? Also,7/16 is more restrictive than 1/2. I know they aren't a big difference but is same price, why don't go with the good stock.

That makes sense i guess...
What about the controller and the fans?

I've heard the ones that come in the kit are pretty sucky, yate loons are supposed to be really good for radiators right?
post #9 of 15
Fans of the kit are low noise @ 1700 rpm. With the yate loon you wanna be at 2200 rpm, better static pressure but 40db. But with your fan controller you Will be ok to decrease speed even if you're gaming you will have to put your fans at full speed but gaming = sound so sound level of your fans isn't a problem.

Edit : for you fan controller, I think it will be ok, but I never had a fan controller so maybe another member will be better than me to reply on that.

I'm not really worried about sound too much, the fan controller is mainly for the temperature readouts.. So as long as they're actually better than the stock fans I'm happy

also i went ahead and switched the primochill for feser 1/2" id
