post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I thinking of going with H2O set up and was wondering if this block is any good.

For $100 I could get

Swiftech MCP655 Pump (manual)
360 MM Radiator Swiftech
koolance 350 block

The XSPC rasa block is cheaper and performs better. There are half a dozen blocks that perform better than the koolance 350. Unless you really like the looks of it, I would suggest the XSPC Rasa.

I would also go with the RASA block. It's cheaper and performs better.

It's less restrictive and you will see better temperatures by a couple of degrees. The RASA block is right on par with the EK Supreme HF, which is regarded as one of the best (if not the best) CPU blocks on the market.

it gets much better temps according to many reviews

the rasa is within 1C of the "top" block (EK Supreme HF), for about half the price
