Also, did you use the fans that came with the RX360 kit or did you upgrade?

Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks,


Is that an ASUS mobo? - Yes, Asus Evo.

Did you have clearance issues with the radiator fan bumping up against the mobo heatsink?
- Not at all with regards to fan bumping the mobo heatsink. It took me a while to put the 8-pin power connector since I didn't want it to end up touching the rad (this is all me being a cosmetically anal about it), but there is actually NO issues with it.

Did you leave the 200mm case fan above in a push/pull config?
- I removed the 200mm above and installed 6 120mm push-pull setup.

Also, did you use the fans that came with the RX360 kit or did you upgrade?
- No since they are way too noisy.


I had a 120mm rad installed right next to the PSU but I had to remove it due to flow issues. I still think I need that 120 rad installed after GPU2 coz now my res/pump combo gets really warm when I started gaming.

When gaming;
GPUs 50 on load 28 idle
CPU 72 on load 29 idle

@Fuddy

If you have kill coils or are using PT Nuke... no algae. trust me.

What you see happening to the tubing is a chemical process with the plastic itself. see, to make plastic flexible manufacturers use something called plasticizers. These plasticizers are what is causing that tubing to cloud up like that. as far as we know, it really wont harm the loop for a few months. The process takes place ONLY on the plastic. thats why the water in the res is crystal clear.

To avoid this you would need to use "plasticizer free" tubing. Tygon has it. A bit more expensive but a lot less heartache. I also believe that colored tubing suffers from this a bit less as well but do not take my word on that. Most of us here have just opted to change the tubing out. I use the Primochill red tubing and it is fairly clean after about 3 months.

Guys, I just got my rasa kit in today, and I am in love. This new pump that I got is soooo much better than the 750 pump I had before, it is extremely quiet compared to a sharp buzzing noise. And if that wasn't enough, I was surprised enough to find that it came with chromed out black barbs instead of the regular plain chrome barbs.

Will post pics when I have everything all set up.

That's why I ordered some replacement tubing. I'm not even going to install the stock stuff.

Unfortunately everywhere in the UK is out of 7/16" white tubing, so i got UV red.

yeah, that's what I thought... that's why I posted the pics. To warn owners to just swap the tubing before setting it up
