Haha! Good luck selling it. We have the weirdest laws and regulations when it comes to selling, importing and exporting biggrin.gif


Do any of you know of a guide to installing the RS750 kit?

that's what he is using in those 2 video's I linked you


That's expensive for distilled water 2L only cost me £4 over here


your going to want more then 1LT, you will need to rinse out your rad before you use it just to be safe (no debris left in it after manufacturing)

DDC style pumps are reasonable (MCP355/ MCP35X) and pretty solid. I've had two running in an old build for around 5 years. You need a thin radiator so swiftech rads should work for your case along with XSPC RS models.

Thanks for the input, but I think I might go for the RS750 kit smile.gif

I had been gathering parts from the marketplace for about a month, I spent about $200 for my setup. And well, since then (finished it Friday) I have made two separate orders to Performance-PCs.com for a total of $140, lol. So yeah I think I got the bug. There's really nothing to it...

So far I have:

XSPC Raystorm
Black Ice GTX 240
XSPC RS240
Swiftech MCP-655
Bitspower Multi-Z 150ml

For my first round I got 1/2" barbs, cheap 1/2" ID 5/8" OD tubing at Lowe's (spent about $7 on 25ft), and a bunch of hose clamps. Now that I got the hang of it and understand exactly what I need and how much tubing, I'm replacing it all with better quality parts.

Good to know, it was so easy! Thanks! Guess your way of doing it is quite good. Getting cheap parts to try and work it all out, and then later replacing it with high quality stuff.

Really? I didn't think it was the RS750 kit. Well, then I'm all good! Ah, so maybe 2 L.? How would I rinse it out? Just put it all together, add water, and then drain it all?
