Raystorm CPU Water Block
The Raystorm CPU block comes in its own box as well. Along with some bubble wrap to protect the block, there is also a thin layer of plastic around it and another layer to covert the polished copper base. The rest of the hardware and goodies are packed underneath it.
Unwrapped you can see the acrylic bracket it thick and should take some stress for mounting. It is also dressed up with an aluminum plate to match the Acetal top of the Raystorm block it surrounds.
On all four sides of this mounting bracket you will find 3mm holes drilled into it to give you all the options possible to insert the pair of LED lights that come with the block.
With the bracket now out of the way you can see how petite the Raystorm is. As the bracket surrounds the block, it has the wide shelf for support, and on the top you are given G1/4" threaded ports for the inlet and outlet.
The copper base plate is held onto the Acetal top with four hex head screws with a washer to keep things leak free. The surface of the block is finely polished and is flat across the middle, but deflects a bit at the four corners.
Removing the base you can now see the many micro channels that the water is forced through to remove the heat from the CPU. You can also see the line from where the O-ring seats.
