Hyper 212+ to Water, need advise.

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
I am thinking about upgrading from my Hyper 212+. I haven't really read too many reviews (yes bad me), but how does it compared to lets say the H50/H70 or the Rasa kits that are out there. Totally new to WC'ing and I am interested int the idea if it could drop my temperatures effectively.

One of my biggest concerns is upgrading.
When bulldozer gets released I am planning on upgrading to that, would the H50/H70 support bulldozer (I am assuming not) or will I need to get a different cooler when it comes out, same applies with the rasa kits, where I am assuming it would be easier since I could just get a new CPU block?

I think it should support bulldozer, it's am3+ chip but that's just socket not the actual cooler mount holes.

skip the h70 and 50, it will see better gains but it's not worth the money, spend extra and get rasa kits, seems like that's the best bang for the buck. unless you want to spend more and go custom.

If you want to go to water, get a Rasa kit from XSPC. That will result in much better temps. Bulldozer is suppose to be AM3+ so it should be the same mounting as am2/am3.

The H50/70 are rated along with the highest rated air coolers. The D14 is just a titch better then the H70.
The Rasa Kits is probably one of the best water coolers you can buy for the money. The rasa block is actually the second best block on the market.

Ok awesome, that is good to hear, Which rasa do you guys suggest. The 240 or the 360 version? At the moment I am planning on making it a CPU loop only but maybe down the line when I get more confident (at the moment I know barely anything) about watercooling add a GPU loop. So the rasa is definitely the winner tho?

360 if you plan on adding GPU as well.

Would the 240 be perfect for just a CPU loop or would the 360 be better if I was just cooling the CPU and leave the gpu on air? Also what kind of temperature changes should I be experiencing with the rasa compared to the hyper?

I get 43c load on my 955 at 4ghz with my RS360 kit.

That's awesome to hear. So it should definitely be a nice improvement over the hyper 212. Since I have never dealt with water-cooling before, how hard/easy is it to install? Does the rasa kit come with some decent instructions? Anything additional that I need to purchase along with the kit to get the best results?

actually the rasa kits come with no instructions, but it is pretty straight forward once you sit down and look at it all. The hardest part is mounting the block and Rad.

If you can mount a CPU cooler you can mount a water block, not hard. actually kinda easier. no heavy heatsink to work with.

Hmm I will have some reading to do so I do everything right when I get it. But I will definitely get the 360 version then. Sounds like it should be a lot of fun putting it together.
