3. how do the actual screws assemble. this didn't come with instructions (not to difficult to figure out, but i rather be safe then sorry...

thanks

ps quality looks great on this.

Congrats to you we hope to see some bench / comparisons between your previous cooler to,
I would presume the Water block fits the exact same way the RASA,

ok well ive been running it for an hour so far... flow in my system seems to have increase by 25%. im estimating this because my flow meter spins ALOT faster now biggrin.gif and there is turbulence in my res where there wasnt before.

my water setup includes:
2 655 with ek tops
1 xspc dual bay res
3 xspc razor 580 blocks
1 xspc raystorm (replaces the swiftteck xt r2)
2 phobyia 360.2 rads
1 phobyia 240.2 rad
9 feet of 3/8ID tubing.

my idle temps are now 27 for my video cards, 35 for my cpu @5.1ghz
under load my temps are 43 for video cards.... and for my cpu... 57 (using the k2 stuff. im not sure if it has a cure time)

before they were 30 for VC, 40 for cpu
load was 47 vc and 70 for cpu with shin etsu and XT rev2

I pick things up, then i put them dooooown!
LMAO

Good going on the flow gain,

Have you marked down your ambient room temp so we can see if in time the XSPC K2 needs a curing time ?

Edit
We are going to be loving some pics of it in your system or even a Video link to youtube ;-)

ps quality looks great on this.

1) This should answer the back plate question in the upper left. Mine came with the Rasa instructions, but I'm guessing they are working on a Raystorm specific version. I only used the 1156 backplate for my i7-2600K processor (1156) socket motherboard.

2) I have not tested the K2, but based on it's consistency and looks, I would rate it pretty high or at least higher than any white pastes. I believe Vapor is going to test this TIM at some point which will be the more definitive test...he has TIM testing down to a fine science.

3) Yep, like this:
