Koolance RP-1200

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Has anyone tried the Koolance RP-1200?

It supposedly has the PMP-400 in it and it is a res. Might be nice for a one loop setup?

I was researching this last week and it seems decent. The older model seemed to have some issues with overheating though

Yeah, but this is the newer version. I am guessing they worked out the bugs. But without reviews, its hard to tell. I can't find a damn person who has this thing.

Honestly, for $300, I would imagine only using this for a high-end build. But with all the other great options in a custom kit out there, I can't justify picking this up other than aesthetics. Although, the PMP-400 is a badass pump.

The PMP-400 is basically a MCP355 right? That would be awesome if they sold this unit without the pump to lower the cost for current owners of pumps

I just placed an order to Koolance for one of these today actually. It looked like a decent RP Unit as the Exos' always were. The interface looks way less dated then the other one plus the black gunmetal color should look good with the Corsair 800D case, these pumps tend to be more efficient as I've only owned the older RP units in the past.. I'll have it only running the CPU with a 3 rad for the time being but I'm more than likely going to need another PMP-400 pump to run a full loop threw another radiator, two video cards and chipset, as I'll be running the 3/8 tube there will be a significant pressure drop, but the 1/4 tube looks dull to me as recommended...I wonder if adding that heatsink they make for the PMP-400 would make a difference as someone said, older models overheating pumps as well.

Haha I actually just purchased that heatsink as well but mine will be fitted to my MCP355

Hi guys, I'm honestly new to liquid cooling and I'm really lost now. I got an Allienware Area-51 ALX, got intel i7-975 processor and 2 x Ati Radeon 5870. And due to the bad design of my system, both video cards are extremely close to each other which resulted in high temperature in the second card, while playing WOW I'm getting +80 degrees on the second card.

Now I guess that my only solution is liquid cooling, and here I don't know if Koolance RP-1200 is enough to cool my processor and my both video cards, and in case it's enough, then what else do I need with it (i.e radiator, and what?).

I was honestly thinking of buying Koolance ERM-3K3UC but it's really huge and I don't think that I need this system at all.

Please advise my guys

You can get a dual bay res with a pump for less (XSPC dual bay res comes to mind). Your biggest problem will be the radiator, whether or not you can place it within the case or outside. If it's outside, does the case have tube holes in back? If so you can mount the radiator outside the case with a bracket. XSPC rads (the RX series) would be a good budget choice.

You need the following:
-Pump
-Res
-Radiator (120.3 / 140.3 / 120.4 / 140.4) No less than a 120.3
-GPU water blocks
-SLI/CF pass trough fittings
-CPU water block
-Tubing
-Fittings

Thank you very much Rogning for you kind advise. As I understood from you RP-1200 is not the optimal choice from me and if I understood correctly XSPC dual bay res is better. Now the question are:
1. does an XSPC dual bay fit in a 5.25 inch slot just like the RP-1200? I really don't want my computer to look messy.
2. what are the dimensions of 120.3 / 140.3 / 12.4 /140.4 rads? because I want to measure if it fits inside my pc.
3. is XSPC the top of the line? I really don't care about the budget, just looking for the best ever in the market.
4. what kind of tube do u suggest (i.e. 3/8)?
5. what's the best cpe water block in the market
6. i already bought GPU blocks with parallel bridge connection from EK-FC, do you think it's good or should I buy something better?

Thanks

1. Yes it does, however it takes two 5.25 bays instead of one, and it looks like this. This comes with the pump installed, but costs 59.99 without the pump. Click the image for linky.
245
2. You'll first need to choose a radiator. 120 means the fan size, the .1/2/3 is the number of fans it accommodates.
3. Not top of the line, but a very very good price/performance radiator. If you want top of the line, Aquacomputer Airplex Modular radiators, Hardwarelabs Black Ice SR-1, Thermochill PA series. Those are if you have space within the case or can be mounted no problem in the back.
4. I swear by 1/2 ID tubing
5. Right now, price performance the XSPC Raystorm seems to take the crown
6. You're set, though be careful what GPU blocks you bought. EK had some flaking issues with previous GPU waterblocks.
