philips head number 1 or 0, and torx-6 driver.

edit: also make sure you get a driver with a full sized handle. some of those screws have locktite on them which prevent you from turning. a full sized handle will give you enough force from your grip to overcome the loctite.

Any good guides for installing this block?

Also does the RASA RX360 come with good directions?

The block comes with a very nice manual that includes a lot of pictures. The kit unfortunately comes with nothing, but it shouldn't be too hard. Have a look over at the XSPC Kit club.

Thanks and charlie thanks for taking the time to explain stuff to me in that other thread. :3


Do I need to take off that enclosure that you use to keep in the CPU in place to install the water block? What I mean is that level system (no idea what it is called) to mount the water block that comes with the RASA RX360?

No, you don't need to open the CPU socket to install the waterblock. You will need to replace the backplate and open the back of the case.

Do you mean the actualy metal part or just that backplate that came with the noctua?
post #9 of 20
The backplate with the noctua must be replaced with the backplate for the Rasa CPU block. I said open the back of the case because the HAF has a hole in the motherboard tray to allow for easy backplate installation.

Gotcha. I will post once I have everything just to ask some more questions and the like. tongue.gif


Few Questions:
Does this sound good?

Pump-rad-cpu-gpu-pump-rad

Or what should I do? And is connecting the hoses simply clamping them on and tightening?

Then with the kit you just poor water (distilled?) into the res and check connections and fire it up? Any precautions that anyone would advise?

Also I watched some guides and one said it is advised once all together to take it all apart to make sure everything is touching the block. Should I do this? And if I do this would I need to reapply thermal paste and thermal pads?
