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 .

The kits are truly quite easy to install.

Maintenance depends on what coolant you plan to run, many say Distilled water with a kill coil (99.999% silver) is all you need, but I am a little skeptical, and changing to a blend of Mayhems stuff. If you have any questions or want to know more ask them HERE.

As for them leaking that is always the installers fault, there is no known problems with them.

The RS will fit in the CM 690II, but I do not think it will fit between the plastic bezel and case (it might, I have just never tried). It will fit inside the case up the top or down the bottom (if the bottom of the HDD is removed)

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.

It's possible that you had trapped air inside the CPU block. I once had that when I started my first loop and once I cleared it up, temps dropped 5C or 10C, I forgot what it was exactly.

That's a bit too high, even if you're in a hot place. Try to remount the block, otherwise you may have flow issues in your loop as you have a huge amount surface area for cooling just a CPU and GPU.

Ok, so I have my final list and just need some input to make sure I actually have everything I need (pretty sure I do) for cooling an i5-2500K and a non reference HD 7970:

-XSPC Raystorm EX240 kit http://www.frozencpu.com/products/16070/ex-wat-210/XSPC_Raystorm_EX240_Universal_CPU_Water_Cooling_Kit_w_D5_Variant_Pump_Included_and_Free_Kill_Coil_.html

-Swiftech Mcr-120XP rad http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13544/ex-rad-261/Swiftech_MCR120-XP_eXtreme_Performance_120mm_Slim_Radiator_-_MCR120-XP.html

-Bitspower G 1/4 compression fittings (x4) (Kit appears to come with 6) http://www.frozencpu.com/products/10036/ex-tub-605/Bitspower_Ultimate_G_14_Thread_716_ID_x_58_OD_Compression_Fitting_-_Matte_Black_BP-MBCPF-CC6.html

-EK Radeon HD 7970 DCII Block http://www.frozencpu.com/products/15736/ex-blc-1101/EK_Radeon_HD_7970_DCII_VGA_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Acetal_Electroless_Nickel_Plated_EK-FC7970_DCII_-_AcetalEN_Nickel.html?tl=g30c309s1590

All run RES/Pump->240 rad->CPU->GPU->120 rad-> Res/Pump. Might think about deleting the second rad if it's not needed though. Should work fine, yes?

Any reason to not stick with XSPC with everything?

Like the 120mm rad and compression fittings, XSPC are typically good if not great value for money.

Not that it would make a huge difference but I would personal swap the order of the rad.'s to put the 120mm first then the 240 last. That way you have slightly less heat entering the pump.

Not really, no. Switched the fittings and rad out to XSPC brand. About the same price. That block put me close to $500, but I was expecting that. Time to do some saving!

I have a similar build planned and was planning on going

Pump/Res > 240 rad > CPU > 140 rad > GPU > Pump/Res

My thought process being that this way I´d get lees heat entering the GPU. How bad is it to go straight to Pump/res after GPU?

It doesn't matter about the order as long as the Pump is first after the res. So if you're doing one of those xspc dual bay res with the pump attached, you're covered. I'd run the res outlet to the cpu - rad - gpu - back to res.

For aesthetic reasons, would it be safe to put a second Res in the loop? Say

Res/pump-CPU-Rad-2nd Res-back to res/pump?

I remounted my block on GPU. I applied too much thermal grease on the Cu adapter on both sides. Now the T° reaches 49°C in DX9 game after 15 mins of playing 1170/1137 mV

There is minimal effect on CPU, GPU or pump for that matter, but why would you want your pump sitting in warmer coolant then needed? especially if it can be eliminated so simply.
