what you are looking at is a RS360 KIT and a RX360 KIT so the KIT inscludes the RS360/RX360 radiator, and the pump/res combo, waterblock and tubing
thought id make that clear so that you dont get confused
the RS series of radiators are slim and are optimised for high speed fans, the RX series of radiators are thick and optimised to be used with low speed fans
how about you look into making a custom watercooling setup, so no kits and just pick out the parts required separately so you can like mix and match what you want?

So im wrong in my belief that the only difference between a RX360 and RS360 is the radiator? All the other parts in the bundle are different?

Reason why I wanted to buy XSPC kit is that its relatively cheap, and unless buying my own parts seperately is going to make a big difference, as the cost would likely be alot more.

See this is what is making me think otherwise, my last 2500k managed 1.41v full load after 2 days and maxed out at 63C with my current air cooler. So 3C difference between my cooler and your WC setup...£150 is alot of money if I was to end up with similar results as you.

Your right in your original thought, the RS & RX are the same kits. The one and only difference is the rad.

I would save for the RX360. This will be enough for your CPU and GPU.

I'm sorry you are getting confused... yes the difference between the RS and the RX is the radiator size the RX is thicker and will generally cool better... now to the good stuff... I think that a kit would be fine for you... I bought the RX360kit for my 2600k and I love it... it's quiet and cools great... saw a 12-15 degree drop in temps from my old CUSTOM water cooling kit(only had a 120 rad) but I would say if you dont know much about water cooling done have the time/budget that kit the RS360 would be great.... everything you need is in there except a coolant(distilled water works great) comes with tubing, block, res, pump, rad, and I think you even get a free kill coil(to keep algae from growing in the loop) Final verdict. Get teh RS 360 kit or if you can wait a bit longer and save get the RX360.... but you will enjoy it and it will give you great performance either way. Good luck on your water cooling adventure and feel free to PM me with any questions about the kit. thumb.gif

You are right, I just wanted to make. It clear that tthe RS/RX360 is the name of the radiator, not. the kit
Only difference is the radiator, everythoing else is the same
Personally I think for the long run the RX is the better option, so if you can save up and go for that, you won't regret it
The RS would still be a good upgrade tho, little noisier than using the RX
