Yeah, the rasa kits are a great buy. A lot of people run them. Whatever you do, DO NOT USE UV REACTIVE LIQUID! Just get the primochill colored tubing, its uv reactive and comes in all sizes and a lot of colors. From what i hear its one of the top tubes you can get. Just run straight distilled water with either a silver killcoil or ptnuke. UV dye's will gunk up your blocks, tubes, and pump. It will clog up your block and i wouldnt be surprised if it kills pumps too. Nothing but headaches. Trust me. Just look threw the watercooling forum and you'll see what i mean.

My GTX 570 doesn't seem to fit all that well into my case (HAF X)



What do you guys think could be the cause? The mobo? The GFX itself?
It works fine, but I can't fit the screws in at all, which is of course preferred.

Also:

Red: Exhaust
Blue: Intake
Green: GFX

Any comments on my airflow? Do you think the top CPU would heat up too much because of the 2nd GFX blocking the intake of the CPU cooler? Or how would you position it?

Thanks in advance

P.s. The pictures were taken with an iPod Touch so the quality is quite bad, I realize that

Xylian@ you might wanna change the orientation of the cooler if possible and add an intake 140/120mm fan in the 5.25" bay.

The CPU cooler I assume you mean. But wouldn't the heatsink transfer a lot of heat to the backside of the GFX?

How exactly do I do that? I've got a spare 120mm fan so

What he means is to change it so it horizontal. Where the fans would be on the left and right side of the heatsink. That's only if you ram wouldn't be in it's way.

Yeah yeah I know. The how-to I was asking about was installing a fan into the 5.25 bay.

But again. Wouldn't the heatsink from the CPU cooler transfer a lot of heat to the backside of the top GFX card?

How would it? If its set horizontally, you would be drawing air from the left and pushing it out to the right (looking at your pic). Then the rear 140mm case fan would pull the heat out of your case.

As for the drive bay fan, not too sure haven't done it. Probably just stick it in there and get some wire to wire it to something to hold in down. Maybe zip ties would work too?

Thanks for the heads up! I get my bonus next month so I think I will look long and hard at grabbing the Rasa kit. Guess we all have to wait to get replacement boards as well so if I am going to tear down my system, may as well rebuild it with water cooling!
New build!

I was just assuming that a heatsink emits some sort of heat, but what do I know.
I'll change it when I get back from work

Thanks!

I was under the impression that Corsair PSU sucked air in from the bottom and exhausted through the rear... Did you invert the fan or is your model different? Most PSU exhaust through the rear of the case.
