  • Cost: $120 MSRP

The RayStorm comes in a box filled with all the goodies need to install it, such as the back-plates for Intel platforms, thumbscrews & washers and a syringe of K2 thermal paste. K2 is XSPC’s brand name high performance thermal paste, containing 4.0 W/mK thermal conductivity materials, the exact composition of which isn’t disclosed. It is the replacement for the generic white Zinc Oxide pastes that is often seen with XSPC blocks. The only item we would have liked to see that isn’t included is an allen-key. This is a fairly some point though, because most enthusiasts interested in this block will likely have the required tool in their pre-existing toolkit. And, if they don’t, then here’s an excellent excuse to get one! Let’s take a closer look at the block.
