If so, they'll perform nearly the same. However, the H320 would be easier to set up.
The pump on the H220/H320 is stronger than the Raystorm kit, and handles multiple blocks and rads fine. Most loops aren't big enough to need more pump performance than what the H220's offers.

What are you talking about? For one, The H20 220/320 kits are different from the H220/320, though I know you are talking about the latter. Secondly, 97% of H220 users have no problems, but we don't hear from them because they don't post. the ones we've heard of are a vast minority of owners. Swiftech has openly shared they're observed failure rate. Also, you bought an H220 and didn't even use it because you psyched yourself out of it when it had a broken fan and a kinked hose, both of which are small issues, since the kink will go away and the broken fan was offered to be replaced. I even offered to personally send you one myself. Honestly I'm tired of people spreading this hearsay bullcrap because they think that because one person posted a hundred times about their problem, they all must be bad, and every little scratch, imperfection, dropkicked package, or improper installation is proof that every unit is bad. If you don't want to run one that's fine but stop talking about these units like they beat you up and took your lunch money...Edited by Phelan - 7/14/13 at 10:24am
