Introduction

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 received all the criticism with the open arms and 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 – the RayStorm Full Copper water block.

 

“We released our first product the R120 radiator in 2004, the following year we released our X20 CPU waterblock, pump and watercooling kit. Since then we have released many award winning products covering all components of wtercooling systems, most recently our RX360 full cover GPU water blocks. All our products are designed for the PC enthusiast market where they are used by gamers and PC modders. Over the past year our products have been proved very popular with boutique PC manufactures and in specialist areas like recording studio PC’s. We are constantly revising our products to improve performance.”
