XSPC Raystorm 750 EX240 Watercooling Kit Review
XSPC have been around for a few years now, quietly going about their business and producing quality water-cooling kit. We had the pleasure of reviewing the RS240 kit some years back and were very impressed with it. With the EX 240 kit XSPC hope to take performance to the next level.
The Kit as you have probably worked out by now is based around three main components. Firstly, the classic X20 750 Litre/hour dual bay res/pump combo. Secondly, the Raystorm CPU Water-block. Seen as the successor to the Rasa, although the Rasa can still be purchased and is a great water-block in it's own right, the Raystorm promises even better performance, along with some bling party tricks. Last, but by no means least, the star of the show, the new EX series Radiator. Billed as a slimline radiator with the same diminutive dimensions as the RS series, but having the same performance envelope as the much thicker RX series. Only time, and of course the rigorous OC3D torture test will tell how the XSPC offering stands up to the competition.
As we're dealing with three stars of the show, and because we don't want one of them thinking the're some sort of diva, it only seems fair to give each of them their own section here.
