Thanks to www.specialtech.co.uk we will be taking a look at the RS360 kit to see how it fairs against the best aircooled heatsinks available today.

That is quite awsome. I've been asking a while back about a 240 rad (thickness to be exact) on the forum not succesfuly and here is my answer. Thin rad can perform quite well, well enough for my needs for sure. I have checked specialtech website and they also have a 240 rad set. I will most deifnately be getting it for my tiny case built. Thanks!

I say in the video quite a bit and explain why - 12v.

Slightly loose in the question there dude, ie thats like asking how good is a stick or ram compaired to this one.

Loops will perform differently compaired to the parts inside wont they

This kit blatantly keeps the temps low, bigger/thicker rads will allow larger overheads for GPU's, and better pumps will allow a higher head for more restrictive or just more blocks. Its not rocket science to work it out tbh.

Nice review, puts things into perspective nicely.

I'm still a water-wuss tho. Probably cos I mess about too much.

Its the same with most things tbh dude, if you are methodical and carefull its really not that bad, once you have taken the first step all your worries soon fade away.

Thats a good watercooling kit. It would fit perfectly into my Obsidian 800D. Although I am gone off watercooling since I had wtaercooling in my rig two years ago and there was too much work keeping the water clean and I was always nervous that the kit might spring a leak.

By the way arent those CPU temperatures too high. I know the temps arent for a cpu that will do 24/7 but I wouldnt even think of pushing a CPU above 60 celcius in case it would damage the CPU.
