New to watercooling...advice needed! - Page 2

post #11 of 12
Another vote for the Rasa kit over that Koolance pump/res... the numbers on that thing aren't great and I am no fan of single 5 1/4 bay res.

Koolance is known to mix metals which is a big no-no as you probably know, however I don't know about that specific pump/res combo.

Ditch that crappy fluid, it'll gunk up your loop and give you higher temps. Get a $1 gallon jug of distilled water at any pharmacy or grocery store, and either a silver killcoil or order some PT Nuke over at Petra's Tech Shop (link). If you want color or UV-reactant, go with colored tubing.

If you just want to do your CPU, I recommend a kit. There's not really as much of a need to go fully custom until you have two or three blocks instead of just one, and the Rasa kits are excellent!

Lastly, quick tip when you're putting it together:
Before starting to fill it, tie Kleenex tissues around each fitting. You'll be able to much more easily detect smaller leaks. Leak-test for at least 12 hours.

Cheers, and have fun!
