Introduction

Water cooling for PCs is not exclusively limited to computer enthusiasts or hardcore overclockers anymore.  With more ready-made and easy-to-use products, water cooling has become more mainstream than ever before, and it is an effective cooling method for today’s multi-core processors with high thermal outputs.  Enthusiast usually seek water cooling as a solution to chill their hot toasty CPU or any other components in their computer; however, first timers trying to get their feet wet (no pun intended) with water cooling can be intimidated by all the widely available components on the market today. 

Every component in a water cooling system is an essential part of the cooling loop. They are each designed for a specific purpose, and if you select the right components, then you can have a very effective and efficient water cooling system that you can take great pride in, a source for improved cooling in your system, but also some bragging rights in the process.

Today we are looking at the new (and presumably improved) revision of X2O 750 Dual 5.25” Bay Reservoir Pump from XSPC.  While XSPC may not command quite as large as market share as other water cooling manufacturers, they are well known in enthusiast circles, offering some specialty products that water cooling afficionados, not the least of which is their very popular extreme performance reservoir top for Laing DDC pump.  XSPC is perhaps a bit more well known in the United Kingdom and Europe, and they do offer a full range of water cooling products, even though a more limited selection is popular in North America.

The X2O 750 is a product that is geared to a slightly more mainstream market, offering an easy-to-use solution that doesn’t sacrifice performance like most entry-level solutions we typically see and test.  Let’s take a closer look at the XSPC X2O 750 and see if it can impress us today.

Thanks to our friends at XSPC for supplying the review sample.

"We released our first product the R120 radiator in 2004, the following year we released our X2O CPU Waterblock, Pump and Watercooling kit.  Since then we have released many award winning products covering all components of watercooling systems, most recently our Razor full cover GPU waterblocks. 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."
