[Official] XSPC Rasa 750 RS/RX120/240/360 Kit Club - Page 211

post #2101 of 13773
Just ordered the XSPC kit and discovered this thread. I'm sure all the information I need is in here so I apologize for the lack of searching but I do have a couple of questions.

-I will be installing this kit in my Cooler Master Storm Scout. Based off this picture, I'd like to duplicate this setup, Unless there is a better setup for this case.
[ATTACH]189434[/ATTACH]
-I've been reading it is recommended to flush the loop before installing it. I imagine this is done outside of the case, correct? Also, what is the best "flushing" method and what should I use?

-Again, with the lack of research before I purchased, I bought the kit with Feser UV Acid Green coolant. Jeff from FrozenCPU.com said this coolant will work just fine but I've read here that Feser Ultra Pure water is the way to go with the help of additives. Am I at any risk or disadvantage running the UV Acid green coolant?

- How do I prevent or remove air bubbles?

-Last but not least, any words of wisdom or tricks for installing this kit. Possibly some decent youtube tutorial videos out there? I'd search but youtube is blocked at work. Thanks for reading!

One more thing. I occasionally attend LAN parties and I often transport my PC. Am I taking a HUGE risk doing so with a water loop? Should I drain the coolant before hand?

Tilting the case and/or shaking it.

Not good. I know when I do this with Mrs. Kah... she grumbles a lot. (j/k)

Thanks... wanted that tid bit on hand in the event I ran into that issue. I hope to do my install this weekend. Already have my "before" temp readings to compare against. Did a nice 6 hr. 23 min. Prime95 run this morning using my present air cooler. At 4 Ghz, 1.4V I maxed at 53*C with an average of 78*F (25-26*C).

I know... "Kah, that's not bad for air!" By this afternoon and with the temp increase of the afternoon, that run would get to about 57*C (or more) easily. If this were summer here, UFFFFFFF! So, I require more cooling if I want to get to that 4.1 Ghz. mark... or beyond.

Okay it's finally done! First of, a shot of the loop itself, then we have a pic of my max temps after a few runs of IBT on air(74c), followed by a shot of temps after wcing with them same OC(55c). 20 degree overall difference. I also bought an XSPC Razor 5870 waterblock with the loop as well. Staying nice and cool.

Flush the radiator by putting a 1/2 distilled vinegar and 1/2 warm/hot water mix in it and shaking vigorously a few times till all the sediment is out of it

-Again, with the lack of research before I purchased, I bought the kit with Feser UV Acid Green coolant. Jeff from FrozenCPU.com said this coolant will work just fine but I've read here that Feser Ultra Pure water is the way to go with the help of additives.

THROW AWAY THE COOLANT OR RETURN IT! DO NOT USE IT! only run distilled water and a kill coil or PT nuke in your loop. Feser has been known to cause pump damage by blocking up the pump from breaking down which will most certainly happen.
- How do I prevent or remove air bubbles?
remove air bubbles by tapping or shaking the case after filling it up with water. As the bubbles disperse the res and loop, you'll need to add more water until you reach right under the top of the res.
-Last but not least, any words of wisdom or tricks for installing this kit. Possibly some decent youtube tutorial videos out there? I'd search but youtube is blocked at work. Thanks for reading!
Theres really no need for tutorials lol. Basically remember that if you're looking at the barb side of the res/pump, the rightmost barb is your pump's OUTLET and the upper left one is the pumps INLET. Keep this in mind and run the OUTLET to your cpu block's INLET(stated on the block itself) then from the OUTLET of the cpu block to the radiator(does not have any markings to distinguish inlet and outlet on radiator) then from radiator to the INLET (high left side) of reservoir.
One more thing. I occasionally attend LAN parties and I often transport my PC. Am I taking a HUGE risk doing so with a water loop? Should I drain the coolant before hand?
just make sure to tighten down the cap, and if you have a ton of distilled water you can drain but keep in mind you'll have bubbles in the loop once again upon refilling. Always happens, cant get around it lol

I don't have a temp problem, but these prices and this thread is going to be bad for my wallet. 240 looks nice for my NZXT Beta Evo!

Hey you can't think of it like that, gotta just say 'hey this is the same cost as a Night Out with friends'. Keeps the excuses flowing for buying more (un)neccesary parts smile.gif
