Ok so I'll go for the black Tygon tubing, can anyone advise me on maintenance? Filling up water, refilling and cleaning, how often to do so e.t.c.

Also one other thing, will the XSPC Rasa 750 pump be able to handle gpu+cpu+240rad+360 rad?

I want to say the Tygon 3400 has plasticiser as well, though I'm not certain. Tygon's norprene (A-60-G) tubing is absolutely plasticiser free though, if you don't mind the matte black look I strongly recommend it, it's also less porous than most tubing which makes for longer between top-ups (took ~18 months before I could notice the water level had dropped, by 1/8" in my bay res). Make sure to get the thick walled (1/2" ID 3/4" OD for example) as the thin walled does kink fairly easily.

As for maintenance, you want to top up the res anytime it gets low, this will vary depending on what you're running, not all tubing is created equal. Don't let the water get below the top of the reservoir's inlet, as if the inlet is exposed to air, when you shut down the system air can get back in the loop causing you to re-bleed the system. Personally, my systems are pretty low maintenance, and I don't drain them before at least a year of use. I've had no growth issues with 1.5+ years between draining and cleaning, but that can vary. The biggest problem with those pumps are they seem hit or miss on reliability, quite a few people have had to RMA them. If you've got one that works well, it should be ok with that kind of loop.

Alright thanks, still not exactly sure about tubing though, because the one you mentioned isn't available to me here in Aus tongue.gif

It's got to be something from here

EDIT: Also can all MC320s be stacked? Or do they have to be classed as "stackable"

Check performance-pcs for the new raystorm kits, they have ethier a DDC or d5 pump which are a lot better and reliable than the XSPC pump.

for the price of that case, you're much better off with an NZXT Switch 810.
