btw, the rasa kit is great. and alot of fun to install.

edit: also, depending on your setup, there is going to be lots of leftover screws and bolts and what not. the instructions that come with that kit are garbage as it only tells you how to install the water block. the rest you kind of have to figure out on your own. took me a while to finalize my setupd i was up till 430am installing mine. pm me if you have any questions about anything. i can tell you my setup and what not.

also do yourself a favor, google: rasa 750 install video. watch as many videos as you can before you install. also be gental with the pump/res as it is acrylic. its very easy to strip threads in acrylic so dont over tighten anything, but at the same time make sure a good seal is formed.

1 more thing, rinse your radiator with distilled water a few times before installing it, then let it dry.
Awesome! Thank you! I am getting psyched! So Noctua it is. Am I good with the Arcticlean?

Might want to look for some used parts? Clean them up

Swiftech GTZ or Older CPU cooler still work fine on older hardware.
Any 240 or 360 Rad you can get for a good price
Water Lines, use a T line or front the cash on a rest.

So my Rasa kit got here and I'm psyched to hook it up. Only problem is my computer is experiencing problems that I should probably address before I go introducing more variables. It's basically blue screening and turning itself off. At first I thought it was the memory because when I took out a single stick it seemed to stabilize. But when I replaced that with two new sticks it would hang on startup. I now think it might be a cooling issue, because when the computer's been sitting off for a while it boots up and lasts for a little while, but when I reboot from a crash it doesn't get past the splash screen. I checked the temps a little while ago and the cpu seems to sit at around 50-52c at idle.

If it is a cooling issue I could probably kill two birds with one stone by installing the kit, but I hesitant to introduce new potential problems into the mix. Any advice?
