Yes the difference is rad thickness, but he asked about performance, which is what I gave him. tongue.gif At the bottom are the fan speeds to give you an idea.

thanks smile.gif

All you really need to do is drain the loop, which you should do every 6 months, you might get away with doing it every year, but I'd recommend 6 months. After a year you should also clean out your blocks.

Thanks for the tips and answers guys, I've still got a few more questions:

Would these screws work for push pull configurations using 25mm fans?


And as for the clamps, is it one size fits all? Or would I need to buy new clamps to use with

tubing?

The clamps are not one size fits all, you will need to purchase another size. I'm not sure which exactly though.

I'm not sure about the screws.

Should I replace my current krappy feser red dye liquid that I have been using for 6 months with either:

this
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/70...Z6x&mv_pc=2572

Or distilled water from Stop and Shop in combination with this killcoil stuff that I just purchased for my next coolant.
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/11...Z6x&mv_pc=3102


Also, how would one go about draining the rasa 750 RS240?
Would you open up the reservoir and turn the computer upside down? Or should I buy around 3 gallons of distilled water plus some vinegar, and then circulate a gallon or so of some hot distilled water with 5 or so drops of vinegar....all the while taking out a hose.

If I did the second way, how would I take out a hose without spilling the liquid everywhere?

Distilled water + a kill coil is all you need. If you used dye you should also consider cleaning out your water blocks.

Not having a drain makes it a bit harder to empty your loop, I'd say stick your res in/over a bucket and twist your computer around to get all the water out, if you have an extra pair of hands ask them to hold it over the bucket while you twist it around.
