Ehhh not necessarily, it's not that big of a deal unless your running a good bit of voltage though it. A lot of nicer cases have a fan that blows directly in that area anyway.

I know all you guys say Killcoil+Distilled but what about this coolant? I know it's expensive but does it mean no having to change coolant?

I don't know... $45 for who knows how many ounces... thats just a bit to expensive to consider without some real reviews or something. Does sound interesting though.

Overclockers3d.com did say this:

Pro's
Performance as good as plain water.
• Long life of around 5 years.
• Available in lots of UV colours.
• Components covered in Fluid XP+ will live to see another day.

Con's
• Very Expensive
Results show it still has an effect on electrical components.

"Performance as good as plain water."... I think I'll stick with distilled water for the time being and use the $45 for something else. It seems like the claim on electrical components is up in the air still.

Well the main reason I'm looking at it is because I will only be using the RS240 to cool my CPU so I will not need to open the loop etc to add a gfx card as I know I will never want that. So with this although it is quite expensive I'm thinking no cleaning = win.

Hi guys, so I installed my loop and I'm pretty comfortable with the loop...I'm pretty comfortable with the temps and the noise coming from my PC. I've got 2 S-Flex F's on push and 1 scythe slim 120mm on pull on the rad. (will be getting another one for P/P on the rad) 2 140mm on the side exhausting air, 1 140mm intake and 1 120mm S-Flex F on the bottom as intake and AC MX3 for the TIM.

Here are my temps @ 27*C ambient (feels like 30*C due to humidity) and all fans at 50%...what do you guys think?

Save your money. Coolant/Fluid Roundup

SL-Coolant_chart-cpuavg.png


as you can see, all the coolants perform pretty much the same EXCEPT FluidXP Nano. If you want to try a pre-made coolant, Fesser or Koolance have had good results and feedback. I'm testing Primochill Pure (Clear) right now in my system, seems pretty good so far. I'd stay away from Primochill dye bomb as I have seen it stain clear tubes and gunk up in waterblocks. As far as colored coolant, the general rule is to stay away unless you change it often. Although, people have reported Fesser and Koolance colored fluids to perform well without staining or gunk build up... Personally, I'd stick with clear fluids and use colored tubes if you want color.

Looks good, & I do see you have no space for another fan...ouch! Can you also take a close up of your drain plug?

Oh man! I completely forgot that Scythe makes slim fans which are perfect for people with RX360s inside the HAF X cases with limited space for fans DOH!. I will order 3 for push, and use the two 200MM fans at the top for pull on my HAF X.
