Hey guys...so I'm getting a Rasa 450 RS120 from Daz...here are the list of things I've read about
1.) Cleaning Rads
2.) Fittings (going to replace the stock kit fitting w/ compression next paycheque)
4.) Res + Pump and its disadvantages
6.) Replacing coolant
7.) Distilled water + additives
8.) General Maintenance
9.) Running loop for several hours to test of leaks
10.) FAQ at first post
So I will be installing it on my sig-rig and I'd like to keep the purchase on the budget side. But I will be upgrading the kit down the road with compression fittings, better pump, better res, etc. I'm getting ready for my BD upgrade.
Anyway several questions before I pull the trigger today or tomorrow...
1.) Will my Scythe S-Flex F's on push/rad/pull be powerful enough?
2.) Should I get a new pump and res along with the purchase?
3.) Should I mod the stock back-plate of my mobo or get a separate back-plate?
4.) Would it be safe to run distilled water (for 3 months) or get biocide with it?
5.) Where is the best place to place the rad? Top or rear? (As those are my only options on my CM690II :/)
6.) Will I be able to place the res+pump on my drive bays? And does it come with a mounting kit?
7.) What's the recommended length of time before I replace the water?
So far those are my questions...this is my first W/C build...so yeah.
Again thanks for all the replies!
