Alphacool NexXxos 240 kit vs ek h30 240 kit vs Rasa 750 RS240

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
RS240 is cheapest.
Alphacool and h3o are right next to each other.
Alphacool and EK have compression fittings and coolant.
I'm not sure.
Barb fittings seem to tough to use.
How do I use the clamps? Will hands work fine?

I would go with the XSPC Raystorm 750 RX240. If you have room make sure to get the RX240 over the RS240. I would pick up some Swiftech Helix fans to replace the ones that come with the kit for better performance. The barbs are easy to install and clamps you just do by hand. I have the rs360 kit and I was very impressed with the performance.

Rasa kit on budget...best performance/cost ratio

EK kit for bling bling factor ... performance around the same as Rasa kit, but looks like a mercedes benz in your system.

don't know much about the Alphacool kit sorry.

Alphacool block is excellent. The rad is a really good performer (one of the best 240 rads out there) Price is reasonable...Personally, I'd go with the alphacool..(I'm using the same rads in my current build and they are rock solid and excellent quality)
