post #21 of 52
Aww...d00d..You live in such an arid climate...you could get a danner mag5 pump and RASA or Raystorm block and be
halfway there~! ph34r-smiley.gif
Then all you need is some barbs,tubing,showerhead,cooler....and some tools.

Then there's always the H100, but just about everyone in this forum will push you towards a Custom loop instead thumb.gif

Thanks, Rasa seems to be a name I hear alot regarding water cooling. Ive looked at the reviews for the H80 and H100 even on high at load they are only rated a few degrees lower than the D14 and quite loud Cooler Master is coming out with a water cooler that might just be the ticket for a beginner like me, the price is right just don't know if i can wait for it to hit the shelves.

Looking at the Raystorm 360 not sure if it will fit in my case anyone know if there is much performance difference between the 360 and 240?

There will be a difference, but a 240mm Radiator is more than sufficient for a CPU only loop. 360 will just give you more headroom for adding GPU to the loop later on. Definitely go with the 360 if you can fit it--will probably have to break out the tape measure, or do some googling.

Just found this build log. Looks like you're in for some dremel work to fit a 360--if you're up to it, it will be worth it for when you add the GPU later. Otherwise, stick with the 240 and call it a day. The Raystorm kit + 240 rad will out perform an H100 at very least.

I had a mental lapse there, sorry. I have the HAF 932, not the 922.

If you have the room, I would go with a 360. If you do not have the space, go with a 240 now and add a 120 later, when you add a GPU, or another 240 if you have the space.

There is a difference. Possibly not huge, but a difference.

@ Jobotoo From anther post by itskerby, it looks like a pretty heavy duty case mod for the 360. I think I'm leaning towards the 240. Been looking for reviews or comparison but not much out there. May just order it tonight if I find more info.

I think you would be very happy with the RX240, and I would suggest it over the RS240. Just make sure you have the room since it is a thicker RAD. (I am fairly sure you should be fine.)

And, yeah, avoid the 360 RAD with your case. wink.gif I am so glad we caught that before you went for a 360 . . .

Okay Ive decided to go with XSPC Raystorm RX240 Extreme Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit w/ RX240 Radiator and Free Kill Coil at FrozenCPU. Got one more question. which pump should I go for? The alphacool is not in stock should I wait or go for one of the other two?

Pump Style
Alphacool VPP655 Variable Pump
The Alphacool VPP655 Variable Speed Pump - Bare Bones Single Edition is just the pump. Why buy a full D5 / MCP655 Series pump when you can just get the guts of the unit alone. Fits directly into bay reservoirs made for D5 MCP655 Series and this pump is ideal for PC and other electronics water cooling. The DC pump is equipped with an electronic...

In response to the overwhelming demand for a quieter MCP650 Swiftech is proud to introduce the new MCP655 pump which features several key improvements. Considerably reduced audible operating noise: the high pitch frequency of the MCP655 is now eliminated thanks to a new chipset controller. Head and flow characteristics have slightly improve...

Thanks to everyone for the great advice.
