it looks nice, but you are limiting your cooling and temp with 2 120 rads. you should add a 240 to the mix.

For sure. He should but that rad on the other side of the top of the case if there's room like some of the other people on here. Then he could throw the other fan on that rad.

I was going to go with the new H80 or H100. I like the closed loop because the warranty, the simplicity, and the price is reasonable. I also support Corsair.

I'm looking in to the rasa kits, my budget is 100-120 but I could maybe stretch it for the Rasa 360 kit.

I don't need extreme performance. My goal is 5.0 ghz on a 2600k or an equivalent speed on BD if I decide to get that instead. In fact, the only reason I'm going with water cooling is to get rid of my stupidly large heatsink.

hey guys, quick question, if i were to get either a 360w/c kit for cpu and 240 kit for gpus, would it fit in my case? or maybe just 2 240s, would they fit in the phantom?

So I'm thinking about trying this kit out as my first "real" liquid cooling attempt.
Rasa 750 RS360

What do you all think about this kit? It seems like this is a pretty upgradable kit. I would like to start with my CPU and then do my 570's later. I know people have gotten 360's to fit but is it worth the hassle? Is it something a novice should try?
If not this kit I was thinking about the 240 version. But if there is a much better kit or option on the market please suggest!

In fact it is a 280 radiator under the ceiling. Due to the width of this radiator I had to install the fan on top of it, so it does not collide with the mainboard and the fan on the 120 radiator.

@chinesethunda
A 240 radiator fits perfectly under the ceiling and a 120 (exactly 120mm) radiator fits in the back. If you will take out the small hard disk cage you can put another 120mm radiator in its place.
If you want to put a 280 or 320 radiator under the ceiling you will have to do some modifications on the case and with a 360 radiator under the ceiling you will lose the topmost 5.25 slot.

The most effective way to watercool a NZXT Phantom is to place an exterior radiator beneath it. Here is an example:

you could do 2 240 rads or a 360 and 240 which would be a TON better.

If you are willing to do several modifications on the case, you are correct.

I would never install a 360 and 240 rad, because I do not want to lose a 5.25 slot. Further the big hhd cage must be altered, which for sure is not easy to do.

If you want to cool an Intel Core i7-2600k without high overclocking and a single graphics card such as the Nvidia 570 GTX or ATI Radeon 6970, my configuration really is enough. Sure, you can always do more.

If watercooling would have been my main purpose, I would not buy a NZXT Phantom again, because there are more suitable cases available for water cooling.
