It seems ever since I got together with Swiftech to review the first of the Drive kits, other manufacturers have been sending emails looking to showcase their products as well. Since that original loop, we have seen its redesign in the HD series, and we also took a look at what EKWB has to offer. Today it is XSPC's turn to get its name in lights as we take a look at the latest series of custom water loops that come as a kit, all in one box to take all the decisions out of it, so users can easily get into liquid cooling without much fuss.
I have used some XSPC products before. Just recently I removed the 655 and XSPC top from the loop when going to my new build, I even picked up a triple radiator version of their older RASA series of loops and got a chance to play around with that, even adding it to a Danger Den chassis I reviewed here.
As far as the reservoir I bought a few years back, it has been solid and shows no signs of wear or anything that makes me think I shouldn't continue using it. The RASA kit on the other hand had some issues that made me stop using the kit all together and traded it away some time ago. Issues like barbs that would loosen under the pressure of the slightest twist of the tubing are never good, the fans then were quite loud, and it could be that it was used, but the pump/reservoir combo unit was loud and is where I had the most issues keeping the barbs tight. So I already have a fifty-fifty experience going into this review, and I do have a few things I am going to keep my eye out for as I complete my build.
