So if it alright if I just water cool my cpu now until the next gpu series comes out?
also will this tubing work with the RS240 kit as I am not sure if the RX240 will fit :S
also lol will the RX240 fit in my case with my motherboard? or should I just get the RS240 to be safe? I want the best possible performance as well though but not if it doesn't fit.
So anyway is this a good start for me?
XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit
XSPC High Flex Hose, 1/2, Blue/UV Blue for tubing? I'm not sure how much I need but it is sold for $9.50 AUD per metre
In total with one metre of tubing and the RS240 kit it comes to $148.50 AUD to water cooling my cpu and get the nice new 1/2" tubing like you guys said also its UV/blue which is good because look, I have some nice new cold cathodes
Also out of these which is the best for me; I like the black compression fittings.
I am lost atm sorry :S
So basically I will be getting the RS240 XSPC kit, but I am still lost as to which fittings and tubing I need (not lost just need help picking some).
So far you have a great system!
You don't technically need any more fittings because the kit comes with them but here are a couple examples of what they are to clear it up in your mind.
For the fittings you have two choices, barbs or compression fittings.
For Compression fittings you need some that are the same size as your tubing because they will squeeze the tubing just a little to create the water tight seal. The ID (inner diameter) will be 1/2" and the OD (outer diameter) will be 3/4".
For barbs you can use these which are G1/4 threads which will screw into the waterblocks, radiators, and reservoirs and the size of tubing that will fit over the barb is 1/2".
