First water cooling. - Page 2

post #11 of 21
Acetal is a engineering plastic that is extremely resistant to many types of chemicals. Great for water cooling thumb.gif

Nickel is a metal coating companies put over Brass and Copper to make it Silver in color biggrin.gif also OK for watercooling.

As for the XSPC EX240 doing the 670 and CPU it would do it, biggest improvement will be the GPU, it would probably limit the CPU cooling effect.

The EX360 would be better fitting.

Also the D5 pump will do a full water cooling loop with no problems. Today blocks are not very restrictive anymore.

I've already made my order for the ex240 already. I'm thinking about putting an ex140 in the rear fan to get better performance. Later on, I'll get the water blocks for the gpu's they're expensive. I'm still confused on the compression fittings. Do i use 1/4 by 3/8 compressions? This is for the 140.

The easiest way to do this is write down the specifications of everything once it arrives, then try to find a radiator that matches what you have.

But since you are buying from the same company, everything should be interchangeable.

98% of watercooling fittings are G1/4" threaded, but always just double check that.

The tubing with the kit is 7/16" x 5/8". So the internal is 7/16". The external is 5/8".

When ordering compression fittings ALWAYS make sure it is the same size. Other wise not good.

As for barb fitting the internal size is all that matters. Keeping it the same size is best, using clamps to secure it.

You can use one size smaller tubing on the next size barb, looks clean and most of the time no leaks will occur. ie 1/2" inch barb with 3/8" tubing



So yes use G1/4" 7/16" x 5/8" compression fittings on the EX140 and GPU when it is time. Do note that most people prefer to use 3/8" or 1/2" tubing. There is no performance difference. 3/8" Generally will bend better. But 1/2" can look nice.


You will probably see no improvement adding a EX140 to just a CPU loop alone. But when you get the GPU wet it would be plenty.


This thread should be very helpful for ya thumb.gif

How much of an improvement if I'm coming over from a h100i? I saw a graph from the review of the ex 240 and it's a big improvement. I want to know from the experts themselves of water cooling. I got the ex 240 so I can see if it fits in my case and if there is enough room, I'll order the triple radiator. :-)

Never used a H100 so I can't tell ya, but I imagine it will be a great difference. The Raystorm block is up with the best of them.

As for fitting a 360 rad in a CM HAF 942 case, the info I can find seems to make me think not a problem. If it don't, a Dremel can always fix it thumb.gif

My haf x case is full tower not the cm version.

Would it be better to get an ex360 and put 6 fans on it or rx360 with 3 fans
post #20 of 21
Depends if you don't mind the fan noise. The EX360 is 35.5mm and has a higher FPI (fins per inch) which will make a difference with 1200-2000 rpm fans, but not much of a difference. Whereas the RX360 will have better performance than the EX360 at 600-800 rpm.
