Custom or rasa comparison help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all, need some advice here. I was thinking about buying a vga cooler which goes around 100-200, then it came to me, why not add a bit more $$ and watercool my system. did some looking and ended with a custom build and a rasa build.


This totals to around 589
Thoughts about it?

The rasa build i was looking at is very similar : the rasa kit comes with:

Raystorm CPU Waterblock
Socket 2011, 1366 and 1156(1155, 775 Backplates)
XSPC Dual 5.25" Bay Reservoir - w/ D5 Vario Pump
5mm Blue LED with 4Pin Molex
RX360 Radiator
xspc 1650rpm 120mm Fan x 3
120mm Fan Grill x 3
2M (6.5')' of high flex white tubing
Compression Fittings x 6 1/2 x 3/4
Thermal Paste

My additions to this would be :
Scyth fans x 3
ek g1/4 fittings x 4
killcoil x1
VGA block x 1
Primoflex tube x10 ??
lamptron x1

the rasa build gets up to around 535

the tubing with ?? was because the one provided with rasa kit was 2M (6.5')' of Tubing, dont think it would fit using my planned fittings and all.

The difference isnt much and i just wanted to ask if i should go full custom or rasa in terms of performance.
And is there any problems with my build? or any items i should swap out or remove.

Thanks!

They are both custom loops...One just happens to be bundled for you.

You need to decided for yourself if you want a bay res or a tube res.
