The RASA kit will not, however, solve your GPU block problems, as it only comes with a CPU block. I would not recommend the XSPC kit water block for the GPU, though, as a full cover block is a much better (and better looking) choice, cooling vram in addition to the processor just like most stock heatsinks do. Once again, EK is the common top dog, but there are different blocks for each card from great companies such as Danger Den and Koolance.

I think a GTX 480 benefits the most when under water, as you remove its two largest drawbacks (noise/heat) and elevate the overhead in one mod. I see them going pretty cheap lately($250, $300 with a Waterblock). I may be biased, though.

Just do some research, it's all here.
Awesome thanks alot guys.

To be honest i honestly didnt read very much before posting this. Its alot easier to research stuff when you have a few things to look at first. Why waste hours of searching looking for things when i can make a post specialized to what i know and have all you helpful people respond? Now the research process is going to take way less time and be alot easier .

I'm just being a PITA I'm sure we've all done it at least once when getting into something new, not to mention most of your ?'s getting answers in 3 hours or less

Just curious as I saw the fittings/barbs topic be here, trying not to thread hi-jack, but how many barbs or fittings do you need total for a custom loop? It's the only part of WC I have a trouble to understand lol and I'm pretty bright usually.

Edit: CPU only loop with 1 rad.

You'll need a fitting wherever there's an inlet and outlet. Usually each component only has 2. Rad requires 2, res 2, cpu block 2, GPU block usually 2, mobo block 2, pump 2, etc.

Sometimes you can have the pump and reservoir combined (rasa 750 kit, or res-top for pump) therefore you only need 2 fittings for them combined.

The Rasa 750 kit provides all the fittings necessary, however if you add a GPU block, be sure to buy 2 more barbs or compression fittings.

This leads me to another question

What sequence is best. Most important to least important?

So pump->CPU->GPU->RAD->RES->pump?

And i doubt i will buy the rasa kit to be honest. Im not in much of a hurry and enjoy parting stuff together anyways so ill probably be picking parts up slowly off the bst forum.

I really want one of these though : Helix Res
But thats a bit too much money to spend for aesthetic reasons only lol.

It doesn't matter much as long as you can be sure the pump is receiving a constant flow of water. Usually you want to have the reservoir right before the pump to achieve this. Of course, with a reservoir/pump combo it's not an issue.
