XSPC Raystorm 750 RX360 Kit - HAF X - Page 2

You can, but I've heard of corrosion issues with some people. Some say it does, some say it does not. I would stick with distilled just to be safe. You would just have to clean it a bit more just to be safe. Personally, I never had problems, but I only used it once.

Demineralized is just filtered water. It has all the gunk out of it.
Distilled is basically boiled water.

If you can't find distilled water, go ahead and get demineralized water.

Found some distilled at the local supermarket so I'm happy smile.gif

So what other thing did i have to put in the distilled water ? like so nothing starts growing ? and how much of it do i need to put in?

It's called biocide. Some people use silver coils, which can be easier, but might be a bit more expensive (By a couple bucks). You place it in your reservoir and it cleans the water. There isn't any measurements of biocide or anything. You just place it in and you're done.

I don't know if you can purchase from FrozenCPU, but here's a general idea of something. Each loop is different, so you'd have to figure out how much to put in. Most bottles tell you.

oh okay thanks smile.gif so it's pretty much the least of my worries !

Are all the parts of the kit good quality? should I change any of the parts, I'd rather spend the money to get better.

Ill probably get some new fans aswell
post #15 of 26
All of those parts are definitely high quality, except the tubing of course rolleyes.gif. Definitely keep the parts coming with the kit, only because you're a noob watercooler. It makes it easy. Once you start learning how everything works, you can upgrade to higher quality components. I think it's a great kit for upgrades. thumb.gif I know some friends that actually bought that CPU block seperately because it's pretty good. The radiators are pretty beefy too! Oh yeah, get different fans and for the love of God, don't put those ugly fan grills on them.

Hahah yeah, Rad looks amazing, Want to get some good looking fans for it aswell smile.gif

Going to be some fun

I would check out the Corsair SP-120mm fans. They're a bit loud..and very expensive, but they are pretty good for radiators. You can buy the red versions, not LED frown.gif.

If you want silence and performance, check out the Red LED Bitfenix Spectre Pros . I have 4 myself! They're extremely, I mean EXTREMELY quiet. They aren't the best, but they definitely get the job done very well.

http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_510&products_id=19112 These fans would look amazing !

However these
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_510&products_id=6170 Push way more air through !

These don't look too bad either !
http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=9_510&products_id=13960

So many to choose from ! haha What one would be the best?
post #19 of 26
The best for radiators would defnitely be the Scythe, but you don't get cool LEDs lol. Next would be CoolerMaster, then Bitfenix.

I'm personally all about looks. I think the difference between the Scythe and Bitfenix is 5 degrees Celsius. I'm pretty sure that's what the chart said when I read it like an hour ago lol. If you care about performance, get Scythe. If you care about looks and decent performance, get Bitfenix.

5 degrees can go a long way though, Hmm I'll think about it.

I may just keep my side door off so you can see everything in it (watercooling ect) but it will increase the temperatures of my gpu, since the fan goes straight onto it. Would that matter ?
