[Official] XSPC Rasa 750 RS/RX120/240/360 Kit Club - Page 1292

Running 240 +360 rad and cpu + 2 x gpu off of the stock 750 pump. It is at it's limits though. Will be looking into a new pump before too much longer.

Into a HAF 932, I want to cool my CPU only for now but with the ability to add a GPU block in the future. XSPC Raystorm EX360 kit plus PrimoChill red tubing, a T for a drain line with plug, and fan controller for rad and case fans. Any feedback is welcome.

If you want to use lower speed fans on your radiator, you can easily fit a RX360 into the top, even in push/pull. Up to you though.

So can I use the Thermaltake coolant I have and mix it 50/50 with distilled water and use it with the XSPC Rasa? I want to use it since it will add some color. is it safe or will I have issues later on?

Lots of people use different coolants and dies. I personally prefer to use colored tubing and straight distilled water. The die adn color you your blocks. Some people have even said that it can gum up your loop. Not sure on that one. It would probably depend on the quality of the die.

agreed, colored tubing and distilled water with a few drops of pt nuke. also, the less light you have getting into the water, the less likely anything will try to grow in it.

So I figure I'd spam my project here and in my other threads. I'm sure it'll be useful to someone. biggrin.gif

The purpose of what I asked in two other threads was in regards to how about getting it done. I looked everywhere for set ups similar to mine in a HAF-922 and found nothing!

So this is what it looked like before, I wanted to switch the hoses of the 360 rad to go down the center, so I could cut down on how much tubing was between everything.
400

Ugly hoses in the back:
400

Where I would be doing the cutting into the case:
400

One issue I saw right away... is the space that was between the fan/rad and the bulge the case has, there is the rubber grommet I would be using to protect the tubing from the sharp edges of the hole:
400

I used a step drill, as was suggested to me in another thread. It is very simple to drill with it. I had the little ledge to deal with, which was kind of a pain, with patience I got through into it:
400

I used a magnet to collect debree that would be coming out the top and then I taped up all of the holes from the top of the case, to not have anything flying into it. I then used a baggy that the new rad came in and taped it to where I was drilling the holes. That way everything would fall inside. It worked perfectly!:

400

Test fitting and making sure the holes line up:
400

Started with the other hole...:
400

Thankfully... my test fitting and measuring ensured that the hoses fit almost perfectly. I did have to cut a few pieces off the bulge of the case where the hoses touch it... so that there would be no contact with them at all. Then the grommet laid flat enough to not interfere with mounting the the top piece.
400

543

400

700

I hope this is useful to someone that may have the same case... or at least get ideas on what this kit can do. I was able to get around 3-4C lower on all temps. GPUs idle at 26C, CPU at 29C. Load temps for both are GPU at 37C and CPU between 57C-60C. Using a 1.45 Vcore.
