Hi, so I'm working on a new build, that is centered around an FX-8320/8350 (haven't decided yet) that I will definitely be OCing, someone recommend the XSPC Raystorm 750 RS240 Extreme as a good water cooling option at its price point, and I'm just curious what people think of it? Is there something else I should look at, that's in the same price range?

It will be going in a NZXT Phantom.

I would suggest you definitely go with the 8350 if you haven't already bought your CPU. I overclocked it to 4.4 Ghz with the stock cooler. I'm looking at the RS240 as well. It's about the cheapest I've seen that isn't a "one piece" kit. My thinking is that if the pump and rad are quality then a good waterblock will be all I'll need to get. I'm ordering it this week so I'll let you know what it's like!

1| You just necro'd a near month old thread
2| OP hasn't decided on a CPU
3| The watercooling sticky is where you should borrow your advice's, not youtube
4| if OP has read the watercooling sticky, then he has determined the TDP(if he also has determined his CPU of choice) of his loop and the heat dissipation required. NOT determine how much your loop will cool via a price tag.

This was a surprise.

I decided on the 8230.
