Considering a new CPU block

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I currently have a Swiftech XT that I flow modded with a dremel. The flow is great now and i top out at 65c ish @1.35v's with everything folding.

I was looking at the Raystorm from XSPC, and would like to know how much better it would be. Or if anyone has any suggestions at that price point.

Any input would be great.

Thanx

Depends on the platform. Some sockets like 1155 want a highly bowed block where larger ones like 2011 do better with a less pronounced bow. It reallu comes down to mechanical contact anymore and that is also affect by individual processor flatness. Differences betwee ll the top blocks including the XT is not more than a few degrees.

anyways, you should try out the Raystorm CPU block

test results show good signs of temps in the long run.

I got one myself with a 360 and a 120 radiator with a raystorm CPU/GPU blocks in a single loop.... my idle temps are 29 Celsius and Load temps are 37 @4.5ghz in a push/pull config

so far its running GREAT!!! I really recommend!!
