How are the XSPC EX Series Radiators? - Page 3

Well, I still am waiting for 2 of those 2150 Gentle Typhoons (!!), so those are the fans I intend to use (assuming they arrive before I die!), sounds like they're better suited to the EX. When folding (CPU is running @ 3780 - 235@16 multi) my load temps vary from 48 to 51, at 1.41 volts. I'd like to get down to the mid-40's, while at the same time upping my OC to at least 4.

I was just hoping that rather than piece together a block, rad, pump/res, etc. I could get all that in a kit and save some $$. I played around with the various options, Raystorm, RX240 vs. EX240, and different res/pumps, but no matter how I slice it, it'll come up more than any of the kits.

I guess I forgot that no one ever said water cooling was a cheap hobby, right? thumb.gif

Depending on how much longer you want to wait, XSPC is going to officially offer a Raystorm/EX kit with DDC pumps sometime this year. Don't have a better time frame than that. Dazmode in Canada has pretty much the same thing right now though.

Just stumbled across this thread and I am looking at the ex360 and raystorm... when are the kits coming!!

DazMode currently has various XSPC Raystorm EX radiator kits with DDC and D5S pumps here. wink.gif

and honestly i doubt there is really anything else XSPC could add to make it a better deal then going through DAZMODE aside from maybe cheaper shipping. So if you looking at getting an EX kit (or really any XSPC kit DAZ is the way to go right now

Whats the difference between there DDC pump and D5S pump im trying to figure that out.. Also if someone doesnt mind telling me the difference between bard and compression fittings I would greatly appreciate it..

It says they only got one instock of each lol.. so i guess I got to make up my mind fast.

JMattes, I know this is not quite what you want to hear right now but I think you may need to slow down. If you are wondering the difference between barbs and compression fittings you need to do 2 things....

1. Learn to use Google (jk)
2. Spend a lot more time researching water cooling.

This is one of the most basic parts of a loop and you need to understand how everything works. Water cooling isn't like air where you can buy the most fancy air cooler on the market and it pretty much installs the same as a Hyper 212. I would suggest if you haven't to take a look at all (yes i said all) of the stickies and make some educated decisions before you end up wasting a lot of money.

But since you asked the difference between a barb (not bard) and compression fitting is a barb is simply a threaded nipple that the tubing slides over. Barbs cab me the size as your ID (inner diameter) of your tubing or slightly larger (say 1/2barb with 7/16 tubing), while a compression fitting much match the inner AND outer diameter of your tubing exactly. Compression fittings not only look better but they when used properly offer a better seal. The trade off is some compression fittings cost upwards of 20.00USD, while arguably the best barbs Danger Den Fat Boys only cost 2.50 per unit. 1/2Fatboy with 7/16 tubing isn't going anywhere but doesn't look nearly as good as compression fittings.

I know it seems like a lot, but when you do finally get your kit together the second you ask for help the rest of the forum is going to expect you to be intimately familial with the basics of water cooling. I highly recommend that you read all the information you can find in the sticky located HERE

Have a great day.

Yea sorry that made me look pretty dumb.. I just really want to get it done and over with because I am sick of air cooling that hasnt really helped. I appreciate you taking the time to explain and will look over the link you posted.

Enjoy the rest of yours!
