I think the XSPC block I have is an old model, before Raystorm branding, and just by eyeing it 2 compressions side by side would be tight or to tight. That's a nice solution though.

So just grab a couple extenders? Or use rotary angled compressions.

Assuming you mean you have the Rasa block, smaller compression fittings should fit, such as 1/2" OD. But 1/2" x 3/4" probably wouldn't fit, or would be extremely tight fit if they do

I just had a look on Fleabay and theres a Raystorm BLACK AND RED special edition to match ROG motherboards advertised in Brady, Texas. Man it looks sweet. Just search for "XSPC Raystorm.

it is still one the best.

I have an older RS240 kit I beleive, bought some 1/2" x 3/4" compressions for cheap and was planning to just use them, but putting them up to the block I don't think it will work. Currently the loop is complete, bought it used, so I will have to drain it and then will be reassembling it at some point with new tubing and adjusting it to my case. I don't think I need to WC quite yet, I can't even get my cpu over 40C on air, but stock clocks as well... I'll just plan it and pick up parts as I go until it is necessary for summer, at least that is the plan so far. For the moment I am just investigating watercooling, coming up with some ideas about how to put it together.

I'm sure two fittings or extenders are cheaper than buying a whole new block though
