Experimental rad/stand w/ RASA RS360

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Anybody care to give some feedback on whether this is a good start to a design?

Product: XSPC RASA 750 RS360 kit
Case: CM HAF 912 (not shown)
Materials: Sheet steel for all design elements (I have a MIG welder which limits me to steel)

For symmetry sake I designed it with a split scoop for intake (top) and the same as a diffuser for the exhaust (bottom). Would the loop be too long for the XSPC pump to push? Primarily start with CPU only and maybe throw a block on the GPU one day. Rad nipples are at the back. Case grommets for WC tubes are at the back of my HAF case as well.

Intake, top


Another shot from below showing exhaust


Something like this to create a foundation for the PC and as a mounting surface for the XSPC 750 Pump Dual Bay reservoir combo and/or fan controller.


I would probably sheet off everything except the intake slot and exhaust slot so it just looks like a box with two long cutouts running down each side.

Uh, why not rotate the rad 90°?
In on one side, out the other.

Of course if you just want to build something, then sure, that will work.

your going to want filters to stop dust getting into the rad + I'd put fans both sides for p/p

What about the XSPC pump, can it push that much liquid up that much vertical climb?

Great idea...

..would warm air rising up become an issue if your exhaust is at the bottom?

Whatever gravity takes on the way up, it gives back on the way down.

ahh that's an interesting point, thanks. i just bought a Kuhler 920 to get me started while I think about this project. it spawned because the Galaxy GTX 460 fan is so #$#% loud..
