Especially with your i5-760 we are talking 1-2C differences here.
Alright so you think it will make my temps a lot better than they are now with my A70 air cooler?

Right now with 1.275v and at 4.011 Ghz my temps are in the high 70s to low 80s Celsius

With my sig loop on an 760 @ 4.0/1.38v I got 48c LinX Load (Ḣottest core after an hour).

The XSPC Kit is a little worse, but your volts are lower, I'd say you're temperatures will actually be a little lower! You could then run 4.2-4.3 GHz and still load below 60C.

alright i think i will go for that then, now i just have to figure out if i can hold an rx240 or if ill have to get the rs240

EDIT: What do you think the cooling difference between an rx240 and an rs240 would be?

0.5C - 2C depending on your fan speed. At 1700 (The stock XSPC Fan RPM) only about 1C.

So i'd probably be better to just go with the RS240 and know that it will fit in my case? Also how well would two low speed yate loons help?

They are worse than the fans that come with the kit, but it won't make a huge difference in temperatures and they will be much quieter, so I would use them if you value noise levels (not that the XSPC ones are too loud).

Well, i'll consider them then. I think my case fans will probably be louder than the ones that come with it though. Also i have that GPU fan that is loud. I don't think sound will be an issue. I just want some better temperatures!

Good morning!

Glad to have come across this thread. Hope it's ok if I jump in with a comment/question which I feel pertinent and of consideration for the OP.

I too have been looking at the XSPC Rasa 240 kits. Seems to me to be the best cost-to-temp option out there right now with a "negligible" temperature difference in comparison to more expensive units. Something that I read was that the RX240 was better than the RS240 if low speed fans are used. What this boiled down to (and looking for a consensus now) is that if only cooling the CPU, then the RS240 should be more than good (and cheaper). If looking to add something else to cool in the future (i.e. GPU, etc.), then it would be best to go with the RX240.

Comments?

Thats probably right.. The RX240 has a thicker radiator than the RS240. Therefore it can cool things off a little bit better! Dunno that i can hold one of those though

I agree. The RX series is roughly 45% thicker than the RS series (63mm vs. 35mm/2.5" vs. 1.4"). I have plenty of space top inside on my HAF 922 so I may just go with the RX all out and use standard fans (25mm thick). Am looking into "possibly" using 55mm fans at low speeds. I believe air flow will be improved and noise reduced at low speeds (by means of a fan controller) but need to read up more on that point. I am just thinking out loud here...

In your case, you may be able to look at the RX BUT consider thinner fans (20mm). I am no expert on air flow and such, but I do know that FrozenCPU has a wide selection of fans that vary in their thickness as it is. See here and I guess compare CFM's and such until someone with more knowledge chimes in for us.

That being the case, and the RX series working better with lower CFM fans (supposedly - that's why I am looking for additional comments on this), then it just might be that in your case you could go with the RX with thinner fans and avoid space issues. Maybe posting a picture of the inside of the case showing where you think about placing the radiator might help others to give you better insight.
