Would this work for Water cooling?

I bought all the parts for a 2011 socket build accept a way to cool the thing. I am ether thinking of going with the rasa rx360 or a custom system. This is what I have so far wondering if it seems like it would work, I have never yet built a water cooling system so I am ignorant.

would I need anything else besides distilled water and perhaps some clamps from the hardwere store I think that should do it nicely but I don't know, oh I also got 6 1900 RPM 110.31 cfm Kaze-Jyuni Scythe fans for the cooling, I am thinking push pull.


Oh something else I was thinking about is how to control all 6 fans, I do have a fan controller that I am going to hook up to this but I am thinking about the fact that this thing has to be mounted outside the case and that the fan controller is going to be on the other side... would I need some sort of cord extension or something

oh I should say all this is about 240$, 30$ or so over the rasa because I would of mounted that one too so about 30$ more not much more for the higher quality rad at 20 or more fins per inch.

Everything will work. Should be a very good setup. I don't recommend Xoxide because of their prices. Try performance-pcs or frozen-cpu.

Look at some Lamptrons for fan controllers.

Rasa RS or RX kit would be a better buy for the price and what you have listed. You are essentially piecing together a Rasa/Raystorm kit for more money.

you may be right, but I see that the Rasa has only 8 fins per inch, and the other has over 20, would that make a big difference that I ca see in numbers. I am at first only planing on cooling the cpu latter on the gpu and perhaps memory down the road.

Oh, good idea.

Don't need to watercool RAM at all...no use, no benefit.

You can easily add a GPU to a Rasa RX360 loop...a lot of people have done this.

BTW...Koolance's claim that the rad you have listed can dissipate 1000 watts of heat is quite misleading. The only way this would be possible would be using 3000 rpm fans in push/pull and even then, it's questionable. Most 360 rads have the capability of managing 500-650 watts or so, depending on fans being used. Past this, I strongly question a radiator manufacturer's claim on thermal dissipation numbers.

Xoxide has good prices, SOMETIMES, you just gotta catch something on sale.
