Up Close:  Raystorm CPU Block

Seen by many as the successor to the RASA CPU water-block (which is a cracking waterblaock and still very much available), the Raystorm offers greater performance and increased CPU compatibility. (a separate AMD version is available so fret not).  The Raystom comes in 3 parts, the main block, the acrylic mounting bracket, and the black aluminium trim.  This trim can be easily removed should you not wish to use it, or perhaps, if you wish to change it's colour or appearance.

The copper face of the water block is finished to a very high sheen (believe it or not, the picture below right is taken with the protective plastic film still attached.  There is decent spacing between the G1/4 threads to allow for the attachment of bulky compression fittings.  The outer mounting bracket can be rotated though 90 degrees, not that this matters too much as each of the 4 sides has a hole for a 3mm LED.

Not bad at all, worth the extra £50 over the H100 anyway.Quote

im glad to see the performance comparisons. undoubtably, the thin radiator is growing
and that manufacturers are also improving on their goods.
i know there is really no replacemnet for the standard radiator, but are these newer
revisions of thinner radiators "comparable" to the duties of the standard rads?
2°-5°? 10°? 15°?
with the flow of new cases and their bullet-pointed captions of support for water-cooling
really is making for some interesting questions in water-cooling. plus the crowds
are trying to make water-cooling the band-aid for either a bad over-clock or
wrong system design. i can see where the thin maybe in.. but for serious
usage of water-cooling for looks and function, i can not see the standard
radiator being replaced for the proper way to water-cool a system.
