Enthusiast I see! :)  Have you looked into real liquid cooling? Check out the xspc rasa rx 240!

well id like to be enthusiast lol this is actually my first build coming from hardcore console player

If it's your first build, better to keep with the evo 212. H100 will have case compatibility issues if you don't do your research.

tha haf x has mounts built in in the top of the case for it

Or you could just an h80 :p

id imagine the cooling on a h100 is way better than h80 from its radiator size
January 8, 2012 8:06:26 PM

It is!
Closed of water is a good solution if you have a case that fits it and dont want to risk/put effort into the real watercooling.

id like real watercooling but dont want to pay for it and dont want to risk getting my components ruined

Best solution

Watercooling is a pretty expensive hobby, but you only ruin components if you don't do your homework, do a crap job on assembly and don't leak test before powering up.

doing a out of case test with a h100 is gonna be a pain in the a**

Why would you need to leak test a closed loop cooler? It's sealed from the factory and doesn't need to be filled.

And no it wouldn't- you would simply run a molex/fan header splitter and jumper your PSU like you would with any other water loop fill to kick a pump on...

nono i mean , the tubeing isnt long and id have to lift the MB up with a radiator on it once i test it outside of the case to be sure everythings fine

I'm not sure I understand what you are saying...

Yes, you can easily power it up outside the case and not have it attached to anything at all except for power. You just need to disconnect your motherboard ATX 24 pin plug and jumper any green and black wire in the plug to power your PSU on for your 12v. You'd simply need to run a molex-to-fan header adapter to the pump unit. This is how we fill, bleed and leak test watercooling loops, but you shouldn't need to do this with a closed loop cooler- it's factory filled and sealed. Just look at the tubing/fittings closely to see if there are any leaks or any signs of coolant, install the cooler and power up as usual, when ready to do so. Keep an eye on all areas of the cooler, specifically around the pump/block portion and tubing connections on the pump as well as the radiator.

I decided to get the h80 over the rasa rx 120 because im not ready yet. Maybe next year :)

A custom loop is a bit of a pain to clean and setup. Not to mention very expensive.

But it is very worth it^^
January 11, 2012 11:14:17 AM

hahaha yeah too bad im not keeping the set up. I just cleaned and fixed it :'(

Incorrect on a pain to clean/setup. Correct on price, depending on your resourcefulness.

if i got one id want it name brand not fully custom
a c 324 K Overclocking

What 'name brands' are you talking about? I'd consider full custom using proven watercooling components over something a loop that comes in a single box.

idk but stuff like the cpu coverpeice i dont want that to be cheap and i dont want a cheap pump that will give out in a few months either

I've used the same pump for over 6 years.

Laing D5- more commonly known as MCP655 or PMP-450.

it doesnt look that great but if it runs that long who cares what it looks like lol,just the priceing is so for over what i need it isnt funny
a c 324 K Overclocking
January 12, 2012 7:24:49 PM

What do you mean it doesn't look all that great or the pricing is over what you need? I don't follow...

to expsensive and it doesnt look good id need to hide it in my case somewhere
a c 324 K Overclocking

Most people would rather display their pumps, proudly...including me.

Not sure. If you want the tread closed, choose a best answer and I can close the thread once you are done. Otherwise, we can leave it open...up to you.

if you closed the thread wouldnt it allow people not to see it then?
a c 324 K Overclocking

No, it stays available to read, just prevents people from posting replies. I guess a better term would be 'locking' the thread.
