Why are RASA kits so cheap?

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Compared to the cost of each individual part. Is it just because of the combo or is there something wrong with them?

While I'm here which one of these kits would be enough to water cool a 560ti and CPU?

RX240 would be enough smile.gif They are cheap because they do not use compression fittings, the custom pump and res combo saves them money, and effectively most expensive part is the radiator wink.gif

^^^^^^^^^^^^^, Could not agree more. I bought one for my first WC setup and its great for just starting out but after doing research and getting more experience you figure out that a lot of the parts are sub-par.

Oh man, can not count the times I've fallen for cheap good looking deals on kits or parts. Guess more researching for me.

While being "sup-par" parts they are a great starter kit I bought a rx240 and I don't regret it at all it fits the budget very nicely. But if you are willing to spend 250+ then go ahead and go full custom.
Small wonder.

dont let things like low end cpu blocks deter you. for the price they are great kits and performers and as said especially for starters.. if you want to go full custom and make you own loop expect to pay double or more and checking that each component can work together such as right tubing, barbs match etc smile.gif

Only reason I looked at kits in the first place was because it ensured me I would have everything I need for my first WC build (ie. fittings, tubing, or all the small things).

If you're looking to do a simple first attempt at a WC loop definitely go for this. You have the raystorm kits however if you're afraid of the whole low-end business.

But +1 to all of the above. Get a kit if you want to learn, it has everything you possibly could need for a CPU loop.
