Guys, does the Res/Pump fit in 5.25" bay in Corsair 800D case? I noticed there is "L" bracket in the bay.

And yes, i have a silver kill coil and the water isn't green it's the tubing.
Was it "distilled" water?

My case has little L brackets in the 5.25" slots, and the res/pump fits in just fine

Great. Thanks. I don't need to mod the case eventually.

These are the absolute best and quietest fans for radiators. They are dead silent.
Ok, added Arctic Cooling MX-3 to my order.

I've been trying to get some of the Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15 fans at the $15-$16 range, but so far the 10 or so places that offer them at that price are out of stock. I will keep looking and get them once they are in stock.

Thanks for the recommendations.

If you use 7/16" hose on 1/2"barb, then a 5/8"OD clamp is needed. if you decide to use compression fittings, then 1/2" is needed with 1/2"ID hose. Don't use smaller 7/16" hose with compression fittings. As for push/pull fan config, that may be very tight, if not possible in a 932 case and a RX radiator. In a HAF X, yes, since the pull fans can mount on top of the case, under the top plastic moldings for the stock 200mm fans. I would say push fans are fine. I have changed my stock fans for Koolance 120mm blue LED 2.2K RPM fans. They are not noisy or have any annoying fan noises, even at full speed. I use the Sunbeam 6 channel 5.25" bay fan controller and have the fans driven via PWM signal from the mobo CPU fan header, so the fans usually run at 1450 RPM, but under load, ramp up to full speed as the CPU temps go up. As for thermal paste, the Cermique seems to work better for me and I've been using it for years with no problem.
Thanks ezveedub for the help. I think I am getting the sizes now. What I have decided to do is get the RX360 kit for now and use what comes with it. In a month or two when I can get my hands on a new motherboard and cpu I plan to go with the Primochill tubing and the bitspower compression fittings. Or if I feel comfortable with barbs, I may just do that and save a little.

I am drawing up a few ideas to see if I want the RAD inside or outside of the case. If it is too tight I will do it on the outside.

I will look at the "Sunbeam 6 channel 5.25" bay fan controller," as I will want something to control the fans.

The controller I use is a Sunbeam PL-RS-6 unit. It doesn't have RPM readings, just manual or PWM speed control via CPU header port. RPM signal can be fed back to the mobo is you want to read the fans though, which what I do.

I highly recommend watching some videos by DazMode on Youtube, particularly on fittings and tube. It may seem trivial but it's vitally important to understand how these pieces go together, else a series of poor decisions will lead to leaks! Leaks almost always happen at the fittings when done incorrectly!

{snipped the videos}

Now, with barbs in particular, the new philosophy "to use tube so tight that you can't get it off without cutting" has actually made its way into this kit. You accomplish this by using a tube with a smaller internal diameter than the outside diameter of the fitting itself. In this case, 7/16" internal diameter tube, stretched over a 1/2" barb.
Thanks for the info and vids. I watched them a few times and am getting a better understanding.

BTW, I use an externally mounted RS360 with a 2600K overclocked and an EK Nickel/Acrylic GPU block and my temps are pretty amazing (19C ambient, 45-62C at load, 4.8ghz @ 1.425v). I do plan to upgrade my radiator at some point (out of boredom and curiosity really), but don't expect a dramatic shift in temps.
That is great to hear as my stup should be quite similar. I also decided to go with the EK GPU block (copper/acetol)

For low noise fans, you can't beat Scythe Gentle Typhoons. If noise > performance, you'll probably want the GT-AP13 or AP14. If you have a fan controller, get the AP15. I think the AP15 is quiet at full speed, but I also sit about 5 feet from my computer. A very small handful of people disagree.
I'm pretty convinced about the AP-15, I just have to find them in-stock at this point. I do plan on using a controller. Not sure which yet, but will look into Sunbeam, and any others that people may recommend.

If you absolutely want compression fittings (and you'll need at least 8), you're best off getting 1/2" ID, 3/4" OD, and then buying the exact same size hose by Primochill or Tygon. If you stick with 1/2" barbs (like the kit barbs), then you buy 7/16" ID, 5/8" OD hose. Hose is cheap, so don't structure your fittings based strictly on hose unless you're working in a tight environment (HAF 932? yeah definitely not).

Consider rotary angled adapters, but before doing so, envision your loop and how the tube plans to run.
I absolutely do want compression fittings, but have decided that that will be my next project. I plan to use what comes with the kit for now, except maybe the tubing. Compression fittings will be on hold for now.

If you want to read more, check my observations post which deals more with the actual setup and installation.
Thanks, there is some great stuff in there. I guess I should not use the tuing that comes with the kit, so I will get some Primochill 7/16" ID, 5/8" OD hose to use with the barbs that come with the kit. I'm guessing I will not "need" the clamps in this case.

That controller looks great, and good price too! Thanks again!

Would it be preferred for me to start a separate thread on my build so as not to clutter up this one dedicated specifically to XSPC? I think I just answered my own question.

Oh, I ordered the XSPC RASA RX360 kit.

No, you really don't need the clamps. One thing you might want to add though is a T-block, drain port and 3 extra barbs. That way you can install a drain into your loop for easier maintenance.
