I always wondered why that didn't exist, if it did I'd probably buy one, I'm already up to 3 TX240s that have passed through my hands.

1 in a friend's computer, 1 in my girlfriend's computer, and I still have 1 that I have a build planned for.

The TX rads are amazing and thank you XSPC for making them, I hope they are selling well enough you make 140 versions.

@XSPC - is it two nylon washers on the surface of the motherboard - i.e. under the posts?

I am a bit confused as the photos on the XSPC website only show 8 clear washers and 4 metal washers - so the photo would seem to be missing 4 clear washers, or the current instructions on the XSPC website are somehow different?

Can anyone who's bought/fitted a RayStorm Pro to AM4 recently shed some light on this? Thanks

It was nice to see it beating the 60mm thick UT60 at low rpm.
And honestly that's where most users want their fan speeds.
