New to watercooling, not sure what to get. - Page 3

post #21 of 103
the kit comes with fittings...yes that tubing will work fine....i personally like 7/16 id for a tighter fit...but 1/2 id is fine.....the kit comes with clamps also....all you need if you get the kit is tubing of your choice and distilled water and a kill coil....and sure you can chill the cpu now and just splice in your gpu waterblock when the time comes

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
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_853&products_id=17027
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 biggrin.gif
400
Also out of these which is the best for me; I like the black compression fittings.
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=207_160_300&vk_sort=0
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. smile.gif

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".

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_300&products_id=13480


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".

Are those fans on the radiator? What ur saying is put fans on both sides the part that is in the inner part will pull the heat and the outer side will blow it out through the grill/holes to outside the case that making it cooler
In a perspective that the rad is on the top of my case next to the back where I have 2 more fans that can help it out

Ohk so the tubing I picked was fine because I can't find any 7/16 id on pccasegear.com

So if tomorrow I go online and buy these; Will they work with each other? It will only cost me $168 AUD+$19 postage for them with 2m of tubing.

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=207_160_853&products_id=17027

So lol again, if I buy this tomorrow will it work day 1? also is there a guide or something I can read or watch for watercooling?

Ok, if I go online tomorrow and buy this should I be fine? $254 including postage

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=34177&action=wish_lists

I also have that front 200mm and rear 120mm because the ones I have now are really noisy and they will be fine until I upgrade this loop with my gpu being watercooled as well.

lol again will the XSPC 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD work with the XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 kit? also will a push/pull config help me?

I'm not sure which fans I would use for that? Also if I don't do a push/pull config would you upgrade the fans on the kit?
post #27 of 103
yeah the rs will be fine for cpu alone...when you add your gpu you'll need another rad too...found this guy who put a 200 in his case

the problem with that will be the same as trying to fit the rx rad...not enough room....the fans that come with it shouuld be fine...can always figure something out with low profile fans if need be....

yes tubing is fine

Ohk, but have a look at this some guy got his rx240 in there by mounting slight off center;

http://www.overclock.net/t/1097306/corsair-650d-with-rx240-pics

Will a 120mm rad be enough for the gpu?

Thanks I am repping you for this help smile.gif +1
