    Default Interesting new kits on Newegg

    Hey guys, I check out the cooling kits section on Newegg every once in while and stumbled on these. What do you guys think? The 480L/h pump seems pretty strong but I've never heard of Akust before. The price seems too good to be true.

    i'm seriously sold on a minimum of 3 fan openings per every hot cpu.

    i have a 2 fan nzxt, and it is not enough for my cpu at intended speeds

    i'm ok with the idea of that system pushing a 2radx2fan system, looks like it would handle ok
    never seen that name though.
    the chinese are miracle workers at making the current market happen at a MUCH lower price

    Looks, good. Few years ago I've seen Larcooler cooling systems (something similar to EKWB systems), on FCPU web page.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    I'm shopping around getting ideas and I'm starting to see some options I'm very intrigued by. Didn't realize a Raystorm kit could be quite so affordable.

    XSPC RayStorm 750 EX360 WaterCooling Kit at Xoxide!

    I read that the radiator is usually the biggest factor in CPU cooling up to 360mm before DRs start setting in. It's not like the pump on that kit is any slouch though. The real question is how good is xoxide for reputation? Seems like a great starter kit but I wonder if it's missing something I'm not seeing.

    I just purchased the 360 two days ago, it should be getting here around Monday. I'm very interested in seeing how well it performs and how well the quality holds up. There don't seem to be any reviews for it whatsoever, however I found several for the 330 that were generally positive, and some of their complaints (like the arrangement of the radiator) appear to have been fixed in the 360. I'll post how well it goes once I get a chance to run it 24 hours and then install and test overclocking on the 5930k.

    Update: got the kit in the mail today. It took me about 3 hours to go from in-the-box to having it set up and circulating, which doesn't seem too bad considering I've never even touched a water cooled system before and stopped a few times to cook dinner.

    Pros so far:

    1. The radiator fit perfectly on the top of my Level 10 GT, with fans pushing air out.
    2. Compression fittings very snug, feel secure
    3. Included bracket for mounting in the back (didn't use)
    4. All necessary hardware included (except screwdriver and tube cutter; did include little wrench for tightening the fittings), including jumped power connector for mobo-less operation
    5. Electrical setup was easy, half of it was already hooked together
    6. Cheap

    Cons so far:

    1. My biggest complain so far is that the English in the manual is terrible. It's not inaccurate at all, but sometimes it sounds Yoda-esque or otherwise difficult to understand.
    2. Had a bit of trouble keeping the bay unit to stay snug, I'll have to screw-fasten it in-between refills; wish there was something like rails for easy removal
    3. There was just enough tubing to get the job done, suffice to say that you need to measure twice and cut once.
    4. The lock washer was rather difficult to initially unscrew from the other piece (forget the name)
    5. Barely enough liquid comes in the box to fill the loop
    6. Completely unknown - no reviews, no youtube installation tutorials, etc

    I'm going to let it run until tomorrow, then install the rest of the components and test overclocking.

    Now that's more like it I would not waste my money on the other, and this setup is tried and true
    your buying a pig in a poke with the other, hope it lasts! sorry just my humble opinion.

    Well I have it set up now, cooling my i7-5930K. Stock idle was around 24C, and the Asus AI tweaker automatically OC'd it to 4.3 GHz with a max temp of 70C, though the program itself seemed pretty buggy and quite liberal with the voltage.

    When I get a chance this week I'll try manually tuning it, then run some real tests against it.

    The pump is actually fairly quiet once the microbubbles are out. The fans are a little loud when on full, but I can always replace those pretty easily if I need to.

    Nice. Lets see some pics of the finished build. Temps look pretty good.

    The build is not quite finished, but it's pretty close. Main problem (aside from a bad stick of DDR4) is that the bracket for my SSD doesn't match up with the hotswap backplane in the 10GT, so it's kind of MacGyvered atm. Temps do look good, but like I said, they're from the Asus utility which I'm taking with a lot of salt until I can run prime95 and otherwise test it thoroughly myself.

    I haven't done anything like this in over 6 years, so I'm a little bit rusty...
