I would personaly recommend using clamps seen a few ppl on here have tubing come lose. Iv'e also seen ppl use 3/8 ID tubing on 1/2 barbs

of course you should use clamps no matter what. just saying, 7/16 on 1/2 barbs is very secure. that combined with clamps is even better.

from the FAQ

RS240 kit: slightly larger pump, radiator is 2x the size of the RS120, built to hand CPU and maybe GPU but expect higher temperatures than CPU only loop

RX240 kit: once again, thicker radiator, easier to cool with slower fans, can easily support CPU and GPU loop

if that helps

It is still a good idea to secure it with a clamp/ziptie/worm clamp nonetheless. The repeated cycles of heat when your PC is turned on and off or when your components are idling or loading can cause the tubing to come loose after a long period of time.

The included palstic clamps that come with the kit actually work quite well

I don't know the exact thermal dissipation difference, but the RX 240 performs very similarly to the RS 360 if that gives you any idea.

hey guys, id love to ask some of you a question about maintenance on the RX240 kit. mainly just how often does it require a drain and clean? i really love the idea of going with a custom loop and im not actually that concerned about leaks as i plan to use some good compression fittings and leak test for 24hrs before i install it. ive done quite a bit of reading about WC but just wanted to know some first hand opinions from people who actually live with WC set ups.

thanks smile.gif

If you use distilled water and a silver kill coil, it should be years before you need to do any maintenance.

If you add any chemical additives or dyed coolant then you should expect more frequent maintenance (maybe every 4 - 8 months)

If I remember correctly, the difference should be the rad thickness...? If that's true, then fan speeds should play a big role; thinner rads benefit more from higher CFM than do thicker ones.
