One of those shopping lists, with a choice!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I was considering getting the Xspc rasa rx240 kit to save money, but the way i would have to make it fit in my case, it wouldn't look as nice as I'd like it too. It's cheaper but it wouldn't have the cosmetics I'd like. I'm doing this as a hobby after all and everyone knows making it look good is most of the fun.

http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Rasa-75...t-pr-4779.html

Total cost: 170$...shipping gets canceled out from the facebook code pretty much.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
or this custom setup i built, but not sure if it's right or if i could get better for the same price or less.

Xspc rasa block of course, i can handle it being .1 degree worse than supreme hf for 20$ or so.
http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Rasa-Bl...l-pr-4752.html
50$

RX240 rad
http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-RX240-D...r-pr-4383.html
67$

I can't really decide on a pump/reservoir. i kind of want to go with this though, I'm really open to suggestions in this department and that's mainly why I'm making this thread.
http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/swreformcpur.html
(I know that link is only to the res but id get the pump too)
130$
or i also cant decide on if i like the xspc res top better cosmetically
(http://www.jab-tech.com/XSPC-Acrylic...C-pr-4123.html) its still the same price.

These bitspower- fitting 1/2 inch. idk if these are good i mainly just picked them cause they are black and cheap. i need 6 i believe. if u can recommend better black barbs I'm all ears
http://www.jab-tech.com/Bitspower-G1...1-pr-4516.html
roughly 20$

two gentle typhoon 1850-ap15
30$

Primo chill 7/16 uv blue from amazon
16.75$

silver kill coil
7$


Total=320$

Im willing to pay the extra for the cosmetic bonus of going with the seperate pump/res from the xpsc kit. but just wondering if this looks good. would hate to drop 300 to find out i didn't have something right.

I think i should aslo mention I will probly add the Gpu to the loop when Ek comes out with a fulllcover block for the 560

Also, I've been posting in the WC forums asking questions and gathering info for a couple weeks now, and I'm for sure getting one of these two options this week, i finally feel confident enough to WC thanks to all the help from people here at OCN

Looks good, I like that you are going with an RX radiator and 7/16 tubing If you want a good pump get MCP 355 or MCP 655 (I have MCP655 with EK top) really nice and silent.

Make sure you get killcoil & pt nuke and use destilled water - NO DYES!

Fans are really nice - 1850 RPM for that RX is perfectly fine

Here is a reservoir / pump combo all in one.. if you want that click me

Looks good, I'd stick with the Swiftech Pump reservoir, it's pretty awesome. I have the XSPC one and while it's great, it does not have very many options for in/outlet.

Yeah that's what i was thinking too. i kinda like the cylander apperance too. the main thing i like on the xspc one was how it was a little bigger, and how it had LED holes haha.

Do you think i should go with the mcp35x, or think i should go with the mcp355? and will that top res fit on the mcp355?

Yes, the MCP355 will be more than enough for your loop. The XSPC Reservoir top will work with it, the Swiftech Res will not.
