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?
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.
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.
