Hey everyone,
New to the Forums, I am looking to upgrade to the RS240 kit or possibly to the EX240. I'm currently using the Thermaltake Big water 760 plus kit (yes I know...insert comments here). It has gotten me by so far, but I have noticed that the system is getting hotter and hotter every day. I do know that most of it is coming from the GPU - GTX 480 which I’m going to be adding it to the loop later. Right now it seems at about 20-30% load I’m getting about 50c on CPU. I ran Prime95 and within seconds it went from 50c to about 75c and before the heating up finished I was already at 85c and I stopped it. The GPU is killing me on the heat it’s at about 40c Idle and during game play I'm hitting 80c easy, so I have to crank the fan speed up to almost 100% and then I get about 65-70c. Do you think a simple RS240 will be sufficient enough for the CPU and GPU? I’m limited to the Corsair 400R case so it’s only a midtower case. But I’m think the 240 at the top and using some Corsair SP120 fans. I already have 4 of the AF120 in the case circulating the air except for the front which is the white led fans that came in he case.

The pictures in my rig are not up to date with the current setup.
I have looked everywhere and I cannot find a RS240 kit, I did find the EX240 from PerformancePc but 250 is a little out of budget at the moment. Anyone have an idea when the RS will be back in stock?
Any suggestions on the kit in general are appreciated like fittings, tubing, and thermal paste. Things of that nature. I have also read about using distilled water and kill coil and others using additives and some just using pre mixed fluids.

Any suggestions to my post? Im starting to lean more towards the EX240 just b/c of the CPU block. Also plan on adding the DangerDen gtx 480 block to the loop, that is mainly becuase thats all I can find as far as a GPU block for the GTX480 other than the Bitspower but I was reading some reviews an roundups and it didnt do very well. Any suggestions on the loop order?

When was the last time you pulled the fans off and did a proper dusting of the rad? and since it seems you're controlling the fans on the radiator, the RX is supposed to do better at lower fan speeds, the EX has better performance at high fan speeds.

1000rpm's or less, go with the RX. 1250+ and go with the EX. At least that's what I get from reading people's experiences and the tests here.

Wow, Im getting max temps of 90C with settings of 4.8ghz @ 1.300v
(3570k) and cooling is an rs360 kit
ambient temps are relatively cool right now (70 Fahrenheit) , so I will expect max temps to rise. hmmsmiley02.gif

Not sure if I should be happy or sad about my temps. Anyone else using a setup like mine?

I turned my block so the IN side is on top and the OUT side is on the bottom. So, cores 1 and 2 reach around 90C and Cores 0 and 4 have gone low as 80C.

I posed pics of my set up and some people mentioned some reasons why I was getting high temps before... which I was getting mid 80s... you have any pics of yours?

Those new Corsair fans are like $50 here in Australia. drool.gif
