Just ordered my XSPC raystorm ex240 kit!!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
So I finally was able to come up with the money for the kit and bought it today with 8 feet of Primochill clear high flex 7/16 x 5/8 tubing! I am excited to get the get I also got the XSPC 120mm rad stand so I mount the radiator externally with ease. I still have to buy some power suppl extenders to better manage the amount of cables. I will put stats and pictures of the rig here soon! Can't wait to get into the OCN water cooling club!

Here is a pic of the inside. A real mess since the cables on my power supply are a bit short. I am about to to go the electronic store and buy some extensions for the psu. Hopefully I can find them at a good prices

Congrats buddy! Make sure you read up on setting up your water-cooling loop, as there are quite a few tricks to assembling/filling it. Good luck!biggrin.gif

Thanks man I am so excited looks like it should arrive on Tuesday maybe Monday if im lucky. I have read a few guides and seen a few videos on how to properly install and bleeding the loop. Since more than likely I will have to externally top mount the rad unless I can position it on the bottom of the case, I hope not to run into any kinks since I will have to run the tubes thru the back of the case. I just dont want to spend 20 bucks for a 90 degree fitting lol. Anyone have any suggestions for good prices on compression fittings?

Also was wondering is there any kind of software I have to run once I install and have the loop running??

So I was not able to find the extension cables for the PSU so I better manage the mess of cables I have. I found some on jab tech.com that are great prices and even come fully sleeved which is a huge bonus in my eyes. I was able to hide some of the wires I will put some pics up tomorrow!thumb.gif

Here's a pic not much but definitely less bundles visible lol. So much you can do without a modular psu. Also got a pic of my empty drive bays waiting to have the reservoir installed smile.gif.[IMG]

The radiator can't fit inside the case?

It looks like there would barely even be enough room for just fans in the top before interfering with the motherboard. If it were me and I had to mount a rad externally, I would have bolted it to the rear exhaust using either the Koolance bracket or make one from an old fan frame.

Regardless, congrats on getting your first loop up and running. Now you'll never want to air cool again thumb.gif
