well there is NO way i am not using clamps, for 8 bucks extra i would rather not risk my entire system, with all the heating/cooling i would think eventually the hoses would come off....

So i guess i will go with the RX, and one less rad. That should save some space / cash...

Personally I wouldnt get the Rasa kit. The reason I'm saying this is that even though the kit itself isnt that bad itself, most end up replacing components in the kit itself. I bought the Rasa rx 240 kit for $150 i think about 1 year ago. I ended up getting 2 new pumps another w/b for cpu different tubing better clamps (compression fittings). To make a long story short i ended up only keeping the rad itself which basically cost me $150 fir a rx 240 rad. IMO i would go for a custom loop yes you will spend more up front but you will save money in the long run

You'll see what we mean when you actually try putting the tubing on the barb.....

It's not the easiest thing. You can use the clamps if you want but there is no way that thing is coming off.

Picture of my GPU barbs. It looks filmsy and about to break but it's solid and tight as can be.
