Rasa 360 rad in Phantom

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I am getting ready to order my rasa kit and I am curious as to how hard it is to internally mount the 360 radiator in the NZXT Phantom? Also with the kit do I just need to get some distilled water and Silver killcoils? I was thinking about getting some shin-etsu for TIM after reading some reviews as well.. Just dont want to get the kit, get excited and have to order something else LOL. Thanks in advance for the help.

Pretty sure the Phantom only has room for dual rads

For the Rasa kit all you need is the distilled water then either a silver killcoil or some PT-Nuke for biocide.
As far as a rad fitting in the Phantom I have no clue.

If you feel comfortable drilling new mounting holes in top of your phantom it would fit a 360. The 240 fits perfectly in the top without any modding. I removed the 200mm fan up top, put it in the door and installed the rs240.

I have the 120mm fans that come with the kit pushing air out the case through the top. I tested with additional 120s on top of the rad for a push/pull, but there was no difference in temps.

so do you only have the exhaust out the back of the case now? I have 2 200mm up top. these would need to be removed or do you hang the rad below them?

^ radiators need fans... so you'd have to remove those and get 2x 120mm fans for a 240rad... and top fans should always be exhaust imo, heat rises

Right I thought that the 200mm would stay on top of the Rad and the 2 120s that come with the kit would push from the bottem? But does this not work? Would I just take the 2 200mm out and put the 120s in the holes pulling air from the top?

Also what if any preventive maintenance do you need to do with these kits? Is it just leak test it and then its good for... ever? or do you have to redo everything every 6 months or..

As long as you don't have add dyes you should be good and silver coils last an eternity so you won't have to worry about stuff growing in your loop. You will have to clean your loop though once in a while. I would say with distilled water + silver coil, you can last at least a year without any maintenance.
