This was my Raystorm when I got bought it used:

This is normal and should not affect performance too much, but it's possible that you may have had some sort of build up inside your block.
Another thing is to make sure that you are properly outputting the pump/water flow towards the inlet of the Rasa instead of the outlet. This will add A LOT of restriction to your block and will kill a lot of your water flow.
I would recommend a RX240 for those two components or if you want to stay with the thinner EX, I suggest getting a 360 or 240+120. My single RX240 cools my 3570K and 7950 pretty well, but I'll be switching to a EX240+EX120 so I can clean up my build and mount things in much better places than what I have now.
That being said, a single EX240 can handle the combo decently, but overclocking will yield temps closer to higher-end aircooling. If you stick to stock, you will be fine (but who really runs stock? wink.gif).
If you didn't know, RX = lower speed fans and EX = mid/high speed fans. The EX will actually beat the RX if you decide to run fans at around 1600~2000+ RPM. I know a lot of watercoolers here go for silence instead though, so the EX normally trails behind the RX at lower fan speeds.

I would love to be able to go with a 360mm, but unfortunately my case (Corsair Carbide 500R) only has room for a single 240mm slim radiator at the top (designed for Corsair H100 I guess), I don´t know if the RX240 would fit, I´m definitely going for silence over performance. For my vid card (GTX680) I mostly just want to keep it under 70 deg so that it doesn´t throttle. Your 240 + 120 seems like it might be doable (mounting the 120 at the front).

This just seem to be turning into to much of a hassle, might as well keep running the megahalems for CPU and get a DWOOD bracket for my video card.

I just put together my raystorm kit with an ex240 as my only rad. It handles both the ..7970 and I5&2500k quite well. the 7970 is oc to 1200/1600 @ 2.56 vcore and the I5 is oc to 4.3ghz @ 1.280. On bf3, the card nevrer goes up beyond 45c and processor stays at 50's. mine is also in a 500r. You can fit ex240 by putting it underneath the rad chamber and use the chamber for fans.

Great! This is just what I wanted to hear! Although now I don´t know if I should get an ex120 as well and try to mount it at the front (removing a set of drive bays). I have to get all this stuff shipped to Central America so I might as well buy everything together.

One last question, I plan on getting a XSPC Razor block for the 680, will I need to buy any additional tubing or compression fittings? Sorry if dumb question but it´s my first time doing WC.

You can always use a 360 rad by putting it on the back or top of the case or add in a 120 inside the case were it would fit

Yeah, I´m pretty sure I´m going to go with an ex240 at the top and ex140 at the bottom right next to the drive cage. I´ve been checking dimensions and it should all fit. Similar to this biuld:

Thanks for the recommendation. I checked and the tubing is going in the in and out the out so I am good there. I just took apart the whole loop and flushed it so I probably won't take apart the block until I buy some better tubing. +rep


One more thing, I have started getting some air bubbles at the outlet of the cpu block. I am 100% sure it was bubble free when I put it back together. Assembled outside of case and made sure there was no air. How does this happen? Can tubing leak air around fittings? If so I will get some worm clamps instead of the zip ties I am currently using.

Thanks for the help.

Exactly what I was looking for! Running a ThermalTake Chaser MK-1 and was trying to figure out if this would work well. Think I'll add an EX120 in the bottom and call it a day. Thank you sir!

Note that despite the high core temps, my CPU is outputting less heat/power than a 2500K/2600K due to the lower wattage output of IB vs SB.
My GPU at 1285/1600 1.38v/1.625v idles around 40C and loads around 55C (loads to 45~47C for less demanding games, even with Eyefinity). If I decide to lower my overclock, it normally loads between 40~45C.
Edit: I do live in Silicon Valley in Northern California, so the weather is usually fair and not too hot. My ambient temps are usually in the 18~25C range depending on the time of day.
I am running Gentle Typhoons in push/pull on my RX240, but set at around 1000~1200RPM.
The differences could be just based on ambient temps and also parts (I use a D5 pump and it's a lot more powerful than the XSPC X20 750 pump/res). You may also need to remount and reapply paste in the case that there is bad contact.

So there must be something wrong in my WC system as my GPU is clocked @ 1170/1137mV for a maximum temp of 60°C which, i admit, is not an excess.

Greetings all,
Long time OCN member, first time dipping into liquid cooling - pun intended
I have a massive air cooled system now as you can see in the sig rig. I am looking at the RS240 right now thinking its a great place to start. I do some overclocking and want to bring my 2500k to the 5Ghz level but timid of doing that on air cooling. I am also looking to deplete the noise a little form the amount of fan I have to chill the case and two loud CPU fans.
Questions I have are:
How easy was it to install the kit?
How easy are they to maintain?
any trouble with leaks, rad placement ( I know that depends on case, if anyone has a Coolermaster 690II, they can answer that as I am looking to place the rad up to underneath the bezel)

Overall value? Right now I am looking at about $170 initial investment .

I just installed a RASA kit for the first time and as my first WC experience last weekend. Very easy to do. But I got my kit used. If going new, I would have gone Raystorm. Martinslab tested as just a bit better than the Rasa but easier on the pump. In fact, I think XSPC is discontinuing Rasa and just going Raystorm.
