[BUILD] Modded 300R - Finally Done? - Page 2

post #11 of 72
The basic kit comes w/ a bay res w/ a pump built inside. These have been known to crap out prematurely. There's a D5 kit from xspc. Its more expensive but the pump is much better and its still a bay reservoir. There's a DDC bay reservoir from XSPC too. If you can spend a bit more, look into the EK kits. Or look for used parts from the markets to save cash. Send me a pm and I can help scour parts. I'm actually switching fittings so I'll have ~28 Phobya 3/8x1/2 compression fittings w/ green Primochill tube (~2 mos old) available soon for sale. Jab-tech.com had 50% off there stock so i grabbed some new 1/2x3/4 compression fittings to use smile.gif. Feel free to pm if you need more help and don't hesitate to ask here on ocn thumb.gif

Haswell does best with wc once its delid and new goo is applied. I wen from 80° to 55°c on my old 4670K (using the custom loop). I did the vise and block method.


If you bought it new (xspc), at least you're covered and they generally have great warranty support. I went through three and eventually sold the last one i got.

Technically, the Raystorm kits are pieced custom loops. What's great about these kits is that you can virtually change any thing w/ something else. So if you end up not liking one thing, it can be replaced w/out replacing the entire thing.

Btw. ssd are really dropping these days in price. Saw a 120gb go for ~$30 on Amazon. If you do get an ssd, I bought this nifty slot bracket that holds two for my old 900D build:
