Default Anyone know anything about this XSPC kit?

Hey guys.
I was doing a bit of browsing.... attempting to find some decent air cooling for the TJ07 when I found this:

XSPC Rasa 750 RS240 Universal CPU Water Cooling Kit

I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this pump/res combo, and if you would think it would be a strong, value option kit for entry level WC?

It will definitely be good enough, and far better than any air cooler will get you.

Nice.
I wonder about the pump however.
If i was to at a later date add a 320 rad and a few 460 blocks, do you think it'll stress the pump too much?

You'd probably dip under the 1GPM "minimum" I'd say. You could probably add 1 block to it and swap out the radiator, but I wouldn't do anything else.

Depends on the blocks more than likely. You may get away w/ it if i you stick to low restriction blocks. Blocks like the Koolance VID-NX460s, no way.

Yes this is a very good entry level water kit. From what I heard these sell out quickly on FrozenCPU.

hmmm,
i'm wondering if I should opt for a couple of those EK 460 blocks, adding another 220...
would i need to add another pump for redundancy? Would the two 220's provide enough cooling for a CPU and two 460s?

Hey guys,
I've done a bit of research on this pump and apparently there are multiple other people who have used this pump with a multi GPU setup and multi rad setup.

Now, do you think I'd get more performance on a single 4.120 rad.... than say, 240 and one 360 rad? Considering the cost difference between the 360/480 rads are. (like 20-40 bucks depending on site)
