Anyone know anything about the raystorm backplate? I need advice on clearing or keeping the white tape. More info here:

It is harmless you don't need to remove it. It Is just there so when you install the back plate, you don't have to hold it in place before you mount the water block. With out it there you would have to hold the back plate to the back of the board while you secure the water block.

You can leave it on there it will not hurt anything.

I am about to pull the trigger on the XSPC Raystorm RS240 kit. Does anyone have any advise on fittings, tubes or coolant to use? I know its not the RX or EX series kit but asking more in general. I want to some quality fittings especially. The local MicroCenter sells a lot of XSPC stuff so the kit can be upgraded in the future. Thoughts? biggrin.gif

Thank that's the answer I was looking for, I was actually afraid it would conduct.

Any g 1/4 thread fittings will work with the kit. The tubing size will determine what size fittings you buy with the g 1/4" thread.

Coolant, doesn't really matter. I personally recommend distilled water with water wetter. Cheap and readily available locally. I would also recommend a silver kill coil, or pt nuke to prevent algae build up.

Considering you have a CM 690 II Advanced, great case BTW biggrin.gif I would suggest a smaller size tubing with a thicker wall ie. 3/8"-5/8".

It will tend to give you better bends. I have just used Masterkleer which is a delight to work with, and also used Primochill LRT, in the past, which I think you can get a tighter bend with, but I have heard so many things about plasticizer problems with the Primochill.

If it is barbs and clamps I would suggest XSPC barbs, they are really good for the cost, I have used over a dozen with no problems to report. As for clamps, find one you like, there is many out there.

When it comes to compression fittings I have only used Bitspower, which I rinsed my loop with viniger and found it stripps the coating off mad.gif If you do go the compression fittings, just make sure obvisiously that the size is identical to the tubing being used thumb.gif

I have used plain Distilled water with silver and currently using Mayhems Pastel Blue, both seem to work a treat. But it is a preference thing. Even Mayhems will tell you, if you want a plain looking color, tubing is the way to go. If you want to create or have a color not availible as tubing, go coolant biggrin.gif

Thank you both for the advice. I am excited to step into a new realm of tuning and tinkering! I will probably be posting more questions like a noob rolleyes.gif but will do the homework as needed too! I dont want to use any dyes as I have heard they can clump up. I will get some colored tubing from the local MC or just add it to my order on Frozen CPU. I will get the drops too. The Bitspower fittings, I will check out in addition to the XSPC ones. I know its not the BIG OL' KAHUNA kit but its a start for me. I am trying to figure out if the stock 120mm fans they give you are decent enough. As for ginger nuts, We have the same case (yours looks great too btw smile.gif) I will be using the 140mm fans mounted inside the case with the rad on the top between the metal chassis and the plastic bezel. You know what I mean. That should work. If the fans are better than the 140mm Prolimitech 87cfm fans, than I will use XSPC 120mm ones. Thank you greatly you both. I am trying to go for MOTM soon!! thumb.gifthumb.gif

Question (which might have been answered but there's like 1348 pages to look through...

Will the RX240 or the RS/RX360 fit in a Corsair 400r? Or should I stick with the RS240 for top mounting the Rad inside the case.

I know the RX 240 will fit. The 360 might be a little different. I have the Coolermaster 690 which is close to the same size. A 360 rad might not fit but some other people might beg to differ.
If it were me, I would go with the RX240. I am going with the RS since the RX is sold out on Frozen CPU. rolleyes.gif
