XSPC Raystorm or Swiftech Apogee HD? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Yeah 2011 favors the slightly less bowed blocks like the HD. Raystorm is better for the 115x with extreme bow. Thermally.

Raystorm is lower in restriction than HD.

HD has the better mounting system.

I like them both for different reasons, but would probably opt for the HD because of the mounting system and better CPU only loop thermal performance on 2011.

Am I likely to see much of a temp difference over my current 1366 block? As I'm currently hitting 86C on my 3820 @4.9GHz with a liquid temp of 38C

Sheesh that's hot dude! Look at that water temp. You need more radiator man.

I have a Raystorm and i dislike the mounting system's stiff ass springs lol

I vote for the Apogee in this case.

I've already got a 360x120mm + a 200x200mm rad? Could it be my air flow?

I dunno if you figured it out or not, but I'd definitely take a look at your airflow, also dont rule out the thermal paste and seating of the actual waterblock. If you use too much thermal paste you'll actually get a less effective heat transfer.

Maybe post some pics so we can see the setup and suggest some things for you.

Maybe my review will help you with your decision. I tested 7 cpu coolers including the Raystorm and the Apogee. As already mentioned, the mounting of the Raystorm is kinda tricky. But the temps are slightly better.

EDIT: nah...Nevermind!...old thread was revived
