I have not seen any reviews showing any difference in temps. I think its just a upped charge for "classy" looks with the same performance. I personally like the all black look as I think it makes the led lighting stand out a little more on the block. thumb.gif

Yea, the black one looks better, but the cooper one will match the mobo blocks I want to use from heatkiller a little better. I have looked and looked for a comparision between the copper and non and have not found anything. The difference couldn't be that much I don't think anyway.

I have looked also but found absolutely nothing to say there is any difference in performance between the two blocks. I figure they are both raystorm blocks, what makes them perform is not on the outside its the less restrictive, hi flow compartment in the block. Makes me think that one is just all black and the other while more expensive is copper finish to match other blocks you may have in your system, as you said. It also makes sense that it would be more expensive as it cant simply be run along the assembly line and dunked in to the vat of black paint like the normal raystorm probably is. either way it is a great performer and either version will serve its purpose and look good doing it. thumb.gif

Raystorm against other Waterblocks

Is a good read if you're considering buying a Raystorm. thumb.gif

I knew it was a very high rated block, I also saw a review a while back that showed a 2 degree difference between the EK supreme HF and the raystorm with the raystorm having the advantage. I liked the review you posted as its thermal graph showed a bunch of other blocks comparable to is price. your right, it was a really good read. thumb.gif

Good to know the acetal is less restrictive, as well as costing less than the copper version. I was considering one, but with my x20 pump, I think the regular Raystorm may be in my future.

Will do, although I don't expect it to be soon. I'm getting married, and going to Mexico next month, so no new pc parts for now.

I forgot the silver kill coil in my original order, and had to order it separately. It will be arriving a week later, but is it safe to assume that running the setup for 1 week on distilled water with no kill coil and additives won't hurt?
