The top cover and base plate of the Raystorm Pro are of an all-copper construction, eliminating the likelihood of stripping the threaded inlet/outlet ports as well as providing additional surface area for heat absorption and dissipation. With an MSRP of around $70, the XSPC Raystorm Pro block is competitively price with other high-end CPU blocks, especially considering its all copper construction.

Great review!!!
I currently have the regular raystorm as it was much cheaper than the pro when I build my rig last december. I'm suprised by how much better it is with a big over clock. Considering I have a modest OC of 4.6 on my 6700k, my current setup is plenty fine.
