Stuffs needed for a drain/fill in my RASA setup ?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I am about to get the RASA 750 RS360 kit. I would like to add an addition which is a drain/refill system.

I figured out that i would need thoses so far..

2x fillports
1x Tee
6x clamps
1x barb

I would like to know for 7/16 tubing which size i need for clamps, barb, tee, fillports ?

Would like also to understand how size is working in that kind of stuff I would be glad!

Thanks a lots.

Hello.

Have you thought of getting the RX360 kit?
Ok. So you would have a fillport on the top for filling.... That is good. Not necessary though. You could just fill straight into the reservoir.
Then you have the fillport low so you can drain easily. Yes, that is good.
1 barb?? For what? The fillports come with a barb.... http://www.svc.com/acc-505.html
If I am thinking right you would need 2 tees...

I would recommend using 7/16" ID tubing on 1/2" barb for a tighter seal.
The clamp size would be probably be something like this. http://www.svc.com/wdc-3606.html
You don't need clamps, but they are HIGHLY recommended unless you are absolutely sure that you will have NO leaks.

Tee: http://www.svc.com/fit-p104.html
Fillport: http://www.svc.com/acc-505.html Those come in black, red, blue and silver.
Barbs: I would highly recommend Bitspower barbs. They are very good barbs. Look at this page and see weather you want shiny or black barbs. http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/stbareandad.html
Clamps: I don't know what type of clamp you are looking for so you can look at these different types and see what you like. There are other types, but these are fine. http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/hoseclamps.html

I would say you can go with compression fittings, but barbs are fine. Plus, compression fittings cost a mint....

Yeah. But i won't do more than just CPU loop for now. I will stick to RS360.

You are right about this one.. actually adding some kind of filling port on top cause two problems.
1- hassles
2- block a bay

I was planning to add something like this too.. (for controlling the radiator fans..)

This one won't block the refill port so i though i could put a tube there.

I think it will be just better to push the reservoir and fill it in when needed.

Yup.

I though the barb would be for the reservoir fill in.. since i wanted to put a tube to the top. But after thinking about it.. yeah, i think i don't need a barb if i go with the scenario where i push the reservoir when i want to fill in water.. but why 2 tees ? One tee is for the drain system. Except if you was thinking about putting one for the
reservoir refill.. but i believe that isnt a good ideas to put the refill in the loop.

Yeah, i am paranoid so i will actually put lots of clamps lol

I was looking at those... (almost same as the one that came with RASA)
