Internal or External

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Ok i have already decided to get the xspc rasa rx 360 kit, i just wanted to know which is more viable (safety of my components top concern here), an all internal loop in a haf-x or should i just build a separate case with dedicated fans for the radiators, pumps and res. I know building it outside of a case will cost more, but are there real benefits of having an external loop? Thanks

if u want to build a seperate box for the rad and stuff go for it, it will look cleaner and prob cool like 1*c better but takes away all movement of the pc. internal rad mounting is easy (unless its a 480) in the haf x

it all depends on preference...
they both have there pro's and cons...
inside = all one unit, easier to transport, etc...
outside = easier to add components (more rads, pumps, reservoirs), majority of the fluid separate from main components, etc...

as for for the movement problem you could use koolance QDC's to separate the two units with no spill
