Rasa Water Cooling Kit Help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Based on the responses in the h70 vs rasa kit thread and MANY other websites, I'm thinking about returning my h70 and it hasn't even arrived yet. The general consensus seems to be that for a little extra money, a much better cooling solution with the Rasa can be had.

Now I'm a noobish builder as the parts that I'm getting this week (sig rig) from newegg will be my first build and one thing I liked about the corsair was that it is basically maintenance free in that I didn't have to clean any pipes or change water or whatnot. With the rasa kit, what kind of maintenance is required? Now I'm not against doing extra stuff, I just want to know what I'm getting into. Also it seems there are several different variations in the rasa kit, which one would be suggested for me?

Also would this sort of kit fit in my Corsair 600t case that I'm getting? Are there any extra supplies I need for this other than the kit?

Rasa kit will perform better then the h70 you will want a 240 RX kit or RS will work too. They only thing outside the kit you need is pt nuke or a kill coil. For maintenance every 6 months is one a good rule of thumb you can go longer if the water remains clear. Some people even go a year + without any issues.

Also either of those kits should fit ok in your 600 can always take measurements to double check

Rasa kit is better for upgrading as well, in case you ever want to watercool your cards.

Yeah I'll check the measurements for sure. Ah I found a FAQ here http://www.overclock.net/12376083-post4038.html that answers a lot of my questions right off. Thanks for advising me on which kit to get and what supplies I'll be needing.

The 600T has about 38 mm between the top of the case and the top of the MoBo. Swiftech MCR220 is the thickest 240mm rad that will fit. The RX is a no-go.
