    Need advice on CPU WATERBLOCK

    Hi guys!
    I ending build of my WC loop.
    And i need buy cpu block.
    And her we have a problem.
    I stuck. A can make choice.
    Xspc raystorm VS EK HF fullcopper(or fullnickell)+new 6 jet-plate
    They the pretty same. Flow and perfomance.
    But with new jet-plate Ek must be more productive. But no tests for now i don't see
    I feel my self like a Buridan's ass.
    Need some advice to make decision.

    I just got a Raystorm. Works great, looks sweet with the LED lights installed. And it was about $30 cheaper than the EK block.

    How about perfomance ? For me, diference in price be not so big.
    And that's really strange, 1000 jet-plate Ek sent and no one say a word about perfomance.

    i use a KL-360 on a custom vapor nozzle. :T

    If not, id think id get the EK HF.

    I know performance lies there from the many hours of testing the guys here have done.

    The XSPC.. i dont know.. havent seen any accurate tests done on it yet.
    Nadeshiko: i7 990 12GB DDR3 eVGA Classified *In Testing... Jealous? *
    Miyuki: W3580 6GB DDR3 P6T-Dlx
    Lind: Dual Gainestown 3.07
    Sammy: Dual Yonah Sossoman cheerleader. *Sammy-> Lind.*

    [12:37] skinnee: quit helping me procrastinate block reviews, you asshat. :p
    [12:38] Naekuh: i love watching u get the firing squad on XS
    Its my fault.. and no im not sorry about it either.

    Hmm its hard choice. Most if you can't test it self
    Xspc raystorm tested a few guys. I like that they get from raystorm
    One of test i se her http://www.xtremesystems.org/forums/...her-Top-Blocks
    And again the raystorm is top performer ( 1st swiftech hd, 2 xspc). Ek hf 6#jet plate lose 1 degree.
    And Ek more expensive. Different with raystorm is about 10-20Euro.
    As you may see i prefer to take xspc.
    But still not sure )))

    i meant to say... go with what u think looks the nicest.

    Dont worry about pure raw performance as your first setup, as your missing half the physics to understand it properly.

    Go with what your most comfortable with, or you've been exposed to the most for simplicity sake.

    The problem with newbies and water is they try to make the first build really complicated. They copy the experts here, and try to mimic the methods which experts use. This is not the route for a newbie...

    A newbie shouldnt be messing with customized parts, and shouldnt have to customize anything...


    So honestly.. go with whatever you think looks the nicest as your first build if the difference is only a couple C's.


    Trust me... your loop wont stay up long... you will tweek, and tweek again, and tweek some more, until you realized you need to rebuild all over again... :P
    This is how people get stuck in water, and this is how it got popular.

    A can't say self about me : newbie
    I use wc about 4 years And this is not the first loop
    Actually i think i will use the last bild pretty long:
    Cpu - 99% xspc raystorm
    Vga ek fullcover
    rad- mora3 pro 9x120
    pump 2xddc+ek dual top
    res. ek 250 adv
    enzotech 13/19 fitings.
    xspc 13/19 tube
    AC AE5
    Maybe i will change some parts (like fitings), but nothing important will not be be changed.

    Ordered Raystorm, save 16Euro ))))
    And now i must wait, then it arrives
    I look in my pay pal history. Me and my friend, spent on wc parts about 1000 euro in last few months. Air cooling is much cheaper ))))
