Will a XSPC Rasa RX360 kit + 240 rad be enough for 2x6970 + C2Q? - Page 4

I just fill mine up. My thought on that being that the more coolant (water) in the res the less chance of the pump possibly sucking in some air due to random shifting of the pc or just fluid loss.

To drain you want to look at the lowest part of your loop. There are lots of different ways to set up a drain, from using QDCs to valves. My personal favourite, because it is cheap and simple, is to put a T fitting in the tubing with a short extender and a seal cap. Here is a diagram of my current draining arrangement:

I've seen people with similar setups and I like this idea. i just wanted to make sure I understood how it worked, thanks! thumb.gif

i have mine filled to the top of the pump inlet but i wasnt sure if it should be lower, or if it even matters.

Good question. thinking.gif

Good answers. wink.gif I guess it makes sense that you only need to fill it as much as you need to, but I suppose the higher the better! cheers.gif

I'm putting in an order through FrozenCPU right now, and I have the option between the XSPC fans, or Yate Loons (1300, 1650, 2250 rpms).

Any suggestions?

Yeah, I hear so many people talk about how great Yate Loons are, so I'm going to go for it.

I thought I'd update to say that my watercooling is in place, and the EX240 radiator does indeed fit behind the hard drive cage on the Cooler Master ATCS case. thumb.gif Its a really tight fit though, scraped a little paint of the bottom.
