@wondergod ~I have noticed with EK that some of their blocks have been having corrosion issues. Was that just with the gpu blocks or are the cpu blocks affected as well?
EK has new nickel plating "EN" electroless which seems to be the cure of the corrosion. I have not seen an issue with this plating yet.

Yea the nickel plating fiasco affected all there blocks. Supposedly a lot of people have been ok with the EN models. However there have been some rumblings that EN's are being sold that are really their old models, so take that for what you will.

In all honesty the Raystorm is a great block and it's pretty cheap, and it comes with LED holes for that extra dded lighting touch. It does come with Blue LEDs but that can be changed easily to fit your preference.
