re. 360 vs 240
1. The XPSC Rasa with the RS 360 has a radiator which fits 3x 240mm fans whereas the 240 has 2x240 fans... correct?
3x120mm for the 360 and 2x120mm fans for the 240.
2. The 360 isn't necessary for CPU only cooling. Will it lower the temps for CPU only or will it just keep the same temps with GPU, NB etc added?
It will most likely decrease temps a bit, but not by much.
3. With 3x fans, is the 360 louder than the 240?
It will be louder, because there will be an extra fan on the 360 (2 if you decide to do push/pull)
4. For $20, is there any reason NOT to get the 360? I'd inlcude noise as a con.
Noise and space inside to mount the rad are the only 2.
Thanks to all of you. reps
Did you run the kit with stock fans? Much temp change with the typhoons?
The stock fans are not bad by any means, but GTs will perform a bit better. Is it worth ~$60 extra, most likely not.
Why did you change the hosing? Performance or just prettiness?
Most consider clear hosing to be unattractive, hosing does not effect performance; just personal preference.
