I decided to buy the Copper Raystorm over the Chrome... I just don't want to mix metals via plating. Chrome is sexy though.

It would be nice to see some pics of the build when you are doing it also some comparative temps from what you are using now versus the raystorm,

@ Neo Zuko
I really do like the look of the chromed water block but my system does not have any other chrome in it so it would not look right to me,

I will definitely get some pics up when I can. Currently its under a Tt Frio OCK at 48*c under full load crunching 100% at 4.0GHZ. I'm hoping the block can get me any lower then that so I can try pushing the chip a lil higher.

On the chrome blocks. Thats only plated on outside right? so why does everyone freak out bout mixing metal when the coolant doesn't come in contact with the chrome since the block is copper with chrome plating. It might look nice on the outside but me personally I would just sand the bottom off to reveal copper for much better contact for the heat.

The bottom is bare copper unplated already. Its just bolted onto the chrome top section, only the top is plated inside and out. So you are mixing touching metals for sure. And the plating is not always perfect, there could be microscopic imperfections, or even the fittings grinding in. Then you have the same issue, the seal is broken so to speak. In any case, I am banking on chrome being close enough to copper on the metal eat metal scale to not make a difference.

I have question regarding the stock clear/transparent tube that come with the kit; will it remain clear for a long time?
