When you put the two side by side you can clearly see a huge difference in the quality. The feser is much much thicker and will not turn milky or worse brown. Do yourself a favour and spend an extra $15.00 on some good tubing like Primochill or of course Feser.

P.S. You should always flush your rad out with hot tap water before installing it. It took about six flushes to get all the little black specs out of mine. thumb.gif

I agree you should replace the tubing. I never touched my stock tubing, I had ordered some primochill black tubing with mine. Also, I wouldn't tap water to flush unless by hot you mean water you boiled then let cool some. The sediment that is in tap water is pretty bad, and I wouldn't want it in my RAD.

To be honest if your considering Highend air/h70 vs rasa, then get the rasa, the availability for upgrades in the future will not leave you disappointed. Plus the price per performance, OUTSTANDING

On my 965 C3 at 4.020 ghz going from an H50 with 2,000 rpm fans in push pull and shrouds all as front intake my temps with the XPSC Rasa 750 RX360 kit dropped 11 degrees max temp and 2 degrees idle temp. That is huge for this chip. From other posts I should now be able to boost the overclock to approx 4.2 ghz. smile.gif I'll try to do that later today.

I will be installing this weekend and will be posting before and after temps.

If you are planning on switching, all I can suggest is:

- Pre-plan. What do you want to cool and read what others have installed under similar conditions.
- BUY quality TIM. All though the TIM sent with the kit is decent enough, when it comes to heat, I personally look for the best I can get.
- Take your time planning. WC'ing is a long term investment so you need to make good decisions.
- Read this thread completely. There are a lot of posts but along with those posts there is valuable information and good experience. A lot of answers to your questions. I spent a week, week and a half reading everything and asking questions before making my decision.

My pc is in my basement that never gets above 60F(15.5C). One of the main reasons i am looking into the Rasa is its cheap, and i upgrade alot..usually atleast 2 computers a year if not more. thanks for all the info. not sure if im sold on the kit, but i will be reading up on it through the club and see if its something i want to do.

There is as much as 5C difference in my CPU core temps and I was wondering if that is normal or maybe thermal paste isn't even?

Should have lower temps than that. What's your voltage?

4.2Ghz @1.35V CPU-Z shows 1.336 core voltage.

Specks???? I had a wee bit more than a speck (check my pix a few posts back). That was like a third of what I pulled out. What I pulled out would have done a nice number on my pump. I was mining!!! smile.gif

It has everything you need but I would buy some different tubing like Primochill or something. You can pick up some distilled water at your local grocery. Some guys recommend PTnuke biocide to keep algae growth down but if you change the water once a month or so shouldn't be a problem.
