How is this kit working for you? I just ordered the same one tonight, and I can't wait to install it. I'm a little weary on the Res / Pump combo. How has it been? Do you have any pictures of it at all? I can't find alot of information on it, and I'm just wondering what it looks like. Also, is it possible to mount the pump somewhere else in the loop, if you don't want to have it in the res?

Thanks!

A little update on this. i have this kit running with a Koolance AR797 on my xfx 7970 black. I am using stock fans that came with it. 2600k @ 4.5 1.32 V.. stock voltage on video card(for now). Below temps will drops as i have to rerun a new tube, atm i have a bogus setup due to a damn leaky 45.

Cpu - idle 32C max 50 ( folding 24/7 )
Gpu - idle 31C max 53 - 2560x1600 in diablo 3 anyways, still ahvent had a chance to play bf3.

Pump can go anywhere, but if you dont put it in the res that comes with it, you will have to buy another reservoir. It is running fine for me now, but in the future i am going to replace it with a tube reservoir.

martinsliquidlab.org had a review of the XSPC Raystorm (copper edition); he mounted it onto an Intel i7-2600K, here's the link (with performance charts): i7-2600K CPU XSPC Raystorm martinsliquidlab.org

Hope this info helps you in your decision.

Your setup is awesome! I just wish you had the option of buying coloured hosing like you do from places like frozencpu.com... that's the deal breaker for me.

I got my RX360 Raystorm kit installed. I'm working on sleeving some wires, and adding a UV cathode as well. I'm going to water cool the GPU's when I upgrade in a few months. I have fan filters on every intake, so I'm hoping dust will be kept to a minimum. I love this kit so far!
