The specifications for the RayStorm are as follows:

The XSPC RayStorm comes in a simple but elegant charcoal black box with the XSPC logo. It’s filled with all the goodies such as the backplates for Intel�s platforms, two sleeved LED lights, a bag of 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 which isn’t disclosed. It is the replacement for the generic white Zinc Oxide paste that�s often seen in XSPC blocks. The missing items from the goodies bag are the installation guide, and an Allen key (for block dissasembly, if you’re so inclined).

The RayStorm�s mounting mechanism is inherited from the vaunted XSPC Rasa block; included are the self-adhesive backplates, spring-load thumbscrews/nuts, washers and the two new items are the twin blue LEDs and K2 thermal paste.

Let’s take a closer look at the block.
