$200 budget for WC first-timer, rep for help ;) - Page 4

RS360 the bigger the radiator the better.

How are you planning on mounting your radiator? You'll have to do some modding if you choose to place it inside your case, so you may want to add in the cost of a rad mount if the kit doesn't come with one.

The kit comes with a rad mount, and if you check previous posts Im definitely mounting externally until I get a new case...which will not be soon.

Yes but because the RX line of XSPC rads are thicker it would perform as good as the RS360 if not better. I think you should go for the RX360 only $20 more and if you ever add anything else you will not need to spend to upgrade.

360 kit IMO.

leaves some room for expandability.

Also, i've seen some benchmarks from other forums that rate the rad that comes with the 360 kit as being one of the top of the line rads.

I'm a first timer as well and i've had mine perfect for about 5 weeks now with no problems. Very easy to install and i'm at 4.3ghz stable on my i7 970
