XIREX Stealth Waterblock

Conclusion

Conclusion
 
So ho well did the Xirex Stealth CPU Waterblock perform in todays testing?
 
The Xirex Stealth is certainly an attractive waterblock and one worthy of a second look. The exceptionally low-profile nature of the block would lend itself well to those who prefer their cooling system to compliment the overall look of their rig, as opposed to completely overpowering it. Furthermore, the build quality of the Xirex Stealth is par for the course when compared to alternatives out there.
 
Cooling performance exhibited today was adequate for dual- and quad-core work, and whilst the Xirex Stealth was beaten in todays review by the XSPC X20 Delta waterblock, again, it's certainly worthy of a look if you're after a solid performer and not the best of the best.
 
Unfortunately I was able to find any retail samples for the Xirex Stealth anywhere in the UK or US, and subsequently a retail price for the waterblock was equally hard to come by. As a result I'm going to have to reserve my opinion on the Xirex Stealth's price until I receive confirmation from Xirex.
 
The Good
* Build Quality
* Cooling Performance (even on quad's)
* Looks
* Low profile
 
The Mediocre
* Restrictive
 
The Bad
* Nothing to report

Xirex are relative newcomers to the water-cooling scene and their Stealth Waterblock recently stopped by for a visit. Boasting one of the lowest profiles I've ever seen in a waterblock, it certainly has the looks...but can it hold its own?

Would be good for small rigs, like HTPCs etc.

Nice Review.

Seeing the vertical size I thought it'd suck. Thats really good to see manufacturers not going for the norm and still having the firepower to compete.

Nice review as always

Cheers!
