XSPC Raystorm 750 EX240 Watercooling Kit Review




We all know of XSPC as being one of the main players in the watercooling world. The relaease of their new line of water cooling kits, based around the Raystorm CPU block and the new EX series Radiators, along with the classic X20 750 Pump/res combo's see's them make a bid for the throne.

Not bad at all, worth the extra £50 over the H100 anyway.

im glad to see the performance comparisons. undoubtably, the thin radiator is growing
and that manufacturers are also improving on their goods.
i know there is really no replacemnet for the standard radiator, but are these newer
revisions of thinner radiators "comparable" to the duties of the standard rads?
2°-5°? 10°? 15°?
with the flow of new cases and their bullet-pointed captions of support for water-cooling
really is making for some interesting questions in water-cooling. plus the crowds
are trying to make water-cooling the band-aid for either a bad over-clock or
wrong system design. i can see where the thin maybe in.. but for serious
usage of water-cooling for looks and function, i can not see the standard
radiator being replaced for the proper way to water-cool a system.

Fantastic results again from XSPC. Some people really hate the idea of "pre-made custom kits" but XSPC have been on to a winner for a good while now and I'm impressed to see that this 240 rad has come so close to the old RS360.

I was an owner of a RS360 kit for a good while as my first WC kit and I couldn't have been any happier. This does the same thing in a smaller package.

For the record I had absolutely no issue with the 750 pump either. For 6 months it ran perfectly and silently. If people are getting noise it's because they are surely failing to bleed properly, or mounting the res poorly. Highly recommended.

This looks great! definitely the kind of thing i'd wanna try when i first venture into water cooling. I wonder if it'd fit well in a 600T i'll admit i get a bit confused about radiator sizes i.e 240 vs 360 is it the thickness?

Sorry to sound dumb

A 360mm rad uses 3x120mm fans - it's the length of the rad.
Rads are also rated in their thickness, i.e. 30mm, 60mm, 80mm
It doesn't matter how thick the rad is, it shall still be, more or less, the same length.
You can get rads that use 120mm fans, 140mm fans and 180mm and 200mm+ fans too
