Help me pull the trigger on a rasa 240 kit

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
I need the cooling for 2500k at 5ghz

My only problem im having thus far is finding what coolant to use everything has so many draw backs.

Distilled water becomes conductive / has lots of corrosion

The dyed coolants gunk up and don't cool as well

Id like a clear or white fluid the clear one that frozencpu has doesn't have corrosion protection kookoo.gif and they dont sell a corrison protection additive? sozo.gif

Help me out with the fluid the kit im pretty set on i want something thats gonna last.

Also do water cooling kits develop condensation?

Distilled water + kill coil is all you need. And the kit shouldn't get condensation at normal temps. Why not get teh RX kit?

Distilled with Kill Coil or PT Nuke. Is what I think or find some Silver/nickle Blocks and put those in place they create less Build up if any. Just make sure there not the flakey EK blocks.

It used to be cheaper though...never mind unless you are going to water cool your gpu too.

Distilled + silver or biocide (PT_Nuke) is all you need. Also, you might want to buy some different tubing as well, as the kit stuff becomes discolored after a while.

Distilled water wont corrode unless you mix metals like add aluminum to your kit. Distilled plus kill coil is all you need. FrozenCPU even gives you a free coil with the purchase of a kit.

As for pulling the trigger Do it I dropped 20C at load with a RS360. The block that comes with the kit is top notch just look of reviews. the res and pump are ok, the RAD if going the the RX model is one of the best. but the tubing sucks. all in all your saving a ton going with the kit tho compared to adding together a custom loop or even trying to build this loop individually. some people have the pump die but just RMA it or buy another pump and put it inline when it dies. Its a good started kit to build off of

Yeah, the stock tubing is crap...discolors very quickly, white always looks nice imo. smile.gif

Jab-tech is a good place to order from as well.
