upgrading my water cooling

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
hi I am thinking about upgrading my water cooling.

first step adding a second rad and one GPU universal water block.


I was thinking about XSPC EX360 and saw their are a few versions to it:
1) I was wondering if their is any downside to the multi port version it seems superior to the normal version as it allows more options for tube management...
does it comes with all 4 plugs (2 for closing the remaining holes).

as for gpu block I am thinking I will go with XSPC Raystorm block.

I am also redoing all my tubing (I am using green feaser tubing as of now) thinking of buying 12 feet of feaser orange tubes.


by the way I am going to mount my current Black ice rad outside my case where I can buy mounting stands ? does PreformancePc's sells them ?


my budget is 240-250$ including shipping cost which is around 60-70$ to my country.


by the way should I use USPC or FEDEX to deliver my parts ? USPC is considerably faster can I trust them to bring me my package unharmed ? I usually use fedex but their economy service is slow and I am on low budget can use faster service
My build :)

You might not "need" another radiator but I can understand that you wouldn't want to take a chance with those kind of shipping costs.

I didn't know they made a multi-port RX360 but I wouldn't see why there would be any performance advantage or disadvantage. It certainly would make using it as a fill port or drain port a lot easier. I would probably recommend the multi-port version for versatility.

There is nothing wrong with the raystorm but look at picture of it installed. Look at picture of just about any universal installed... They all have one thing in common and that is that the fittings are next to the video card board. Makes connecting and securing the tubes difficult.

EK makes a bridge edition of their universal GPU blocks that you can screw fittings directly into if you are not going to use the bridge.

If you get the EK bridge edition you will need to run 90s off of it unless your case is super deep/wide.

Phobya and XSPC make radiator stands but I think they cost a lot of money. There are probably other companies as well but I don't know.

As to the USPC... do you mean USPS? Personally I have not received a damaged USPS box in the last 2 years and until I got a new mailman (who is horrible) I have actually preferred USPS over FedEx and UPS. However I don't know how well they handle overseas shipments. I don't know for sure but unless you are at an APO anything sent by USPS will also be handled by your local carrier service.

I have never had problems sending or receiving to APOs but I have had problems sending to Canada and have heard of other people having problems as well.

Good luck.
