XSPC Raystorm Copper Water Block

The PureOC gang has just published a review of the XSPC Raystorm copper water block. It seems as though they really liked the looks and performance of this water block but didn't care for the price tag or mounting hardware.

RayStorm is the catchy name for XSPC’s flagship CPU water block. RayStorm has garnered many awards for its outstanding thermal performance, including the PureOC Editor’s Choice Award six months ago. However, the water block has received some criticism from water cooling enthusiasts. Some enthusiasts, for example, questioned the durability of the acrylic hold-down bracket and the non-metal block’s housing. Recognizing that enthusiasts can be tough crowd to please, XSPC has made improvements to an already outstanding water block to address these concerns. Today we have the opportunity to take a close look at the result of XSPC’s improvements آ– the RayStorm Full Copper water block.
