Water cooling options

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hey i just got a new case, and i must say coolermaster has really wowed me with their storm trooper. One question I had is what kind of water cooling can i run? i was looking at a raza kit and don't really wanna go over 200 but i guess my limit would be 250. any help would be really helpful!

Thanks

Well, if it's your first time watercooling, a Rasa RX240 or RX360 kit would be great! If you're wondering, the difference between the RS and RX is that the RX is just a thicker radiator. The only negative I have on the Rasa kit is the tubing isn't the greatest, but it's very cheap and you can always buy your own. You can always upgrade components from the Rasa kit smile.gif.

The CM Storm trooper offers great water cooling options. If you were thinking to do just a CPU loop, go ahead and get yourself an RX240 or RS240. If you were thinking of doing CPU + GPU with a little overclock, get yourself an RX360. Most people will say get a 360 radiator + 240 or 120 radiator, but it all depends on how you feel about your temps.

Up top. It isn't too big, but it won't fit with push-pull. Push-pull isn't need though

you might wanna watch this video with the trooper and a RX360 kit:

TTL RX360 review in CM Storm Trooper case

there will be some modifications needed. and since its the first.. step down to
the RX240 kit. then when time comes, move the RX240 and install RX360 in
the roof, with the above modifications..

okay if i wanted a red watercooling loop just the CPU and maybe VGA later what parts like a list would you use under 250 I don't really want a kit i want to build it myself

The kits will still have you put it together yourself, it just comes with all the components you need thumb.gif At least in XSPC's case. Well worth the money IMO
