How hard is a install with these kits? And is the pump of good quality/is it going to burn out in 2 days like the one DD slim pump (don't remember the name) that came with the WC in my PC resulting in me needing to put the stock AMD HSF on this 955....

Also opinions on quality, ease of install, important information etc. is always welcome. Thanks guys (and possibly girls?)

Install? Easy as pie. Pump is of good quality.
Mine has been running 24/7 since I installed it. And it's running perfectly fine.

When you order the kit and have everything infront of you. Everything is pretty much self explanatory. But if you find yourself having questions, feel free to ask.

Alright man, thank you very much. I will be sure to ask plenty of questions should I need too


Edit: Where'd you get your kit from? FrozenCPU or somewhere else?

I'm setting things up right now but have 3 things to take care of or ask questions about first;
  1. To do - modify an old backplate for installing the cpu block. I'm not comfortable with just 4 screws holding it against my mobo
  2. Question - Has anybody lapped the cpu block and, most importantly, has it made ANY difference. I know I said I'd do it earlier, but after reading somebody who did a nonscientific comparison said it made no difference, I have wonder if it is worth my time.
  3. Question - I noticed a number of people running the hoses to the back of their case (especially you HAF932 guys), why? Does it matter? I haven't run the hose yet, so I can still change it if I want.
After all this is done, I should be ready to do a Prime95 burn in the next couple of days.

EDIT: Just did a razor blade check of the cpu waterblock surface, less than a single hair width of light came through and smooth as a baby's bottom (that's less than 5 thousands of an inch for those who don't know or less than a cigarette paper in width). I'd call that damn good and say that I got real lucky with probably one of the flattest blocks off the line given all the convex ones I keep reading about.
Looks like I missed your post.

I believe someone has lapped their CPU block. But they also lapped their CPU and said it gave them 6C difference, but he also said that his CPU was really convex/concave, can't remember. As for hoses running out of the case, that's because they probably back mounted their rad and hoses need to be run outside

I bought it from FrozenCPU because they are in NY and I'm in PA. Took only a day to get here... But they sent me the RS360 instead of RS240. Took only a day for them to ship out a new one for me.

There is also a discount code on the OP.

EDIT: I also added whomever requested to be added.
If you have a question and you have been skipped over, bump it. I'll get to it

The only downside of the kit is it doesn't come with instructions, but like stated, it's really self explanatory.

When I set mine up. I first installed the barbs in everything, mounted the pump and Rad where I needed them to go. Installed the back plate and CPU block.

Attached the hoses and make sure that they were a little longer to avoid any kinks (The tubing that came with the kit isn't the best in my opinion)

filled er up, let er bleed and leak test and wala. The pump in the res seems to be working just fine and I can't even hear mine at all!

Question, since this kit doesn't come with any fluid do I just buy say Feser One and then fill the loop with that? Or something similiar...

Eh. You could...

I just used Distilled water. Make sure you pick up PT Nuke or a Silver KillCoil to add to your loop to prevent algae growth

So I ordered up two yates loons that are 120x20 hoping they will fit otherwise I might just go external with the radiator.
Was this the RS240 + 25mm fans?

I'm like 80% sure it's 3/4OD. I'll look it up.

EDIT: Can't find it where I thought I saw it before? Are you looking to get compression fittings are something?
