Included Accessories

Along with the hardware components, XSPC includes all components necessary with the exception of coolant to get your cooling loop up and running, including fans, mounting hardware, tubing, and LEDs for component back-lighting.

In standard XSPC style, the kit's manual details out setting up all aspects of the system including recommended flow patterns. While the manual covers configurations not in the kit, it is highly detailed and contains more than enough information to get you up and running well.

For mounting the CPU block on an Intel board, XSPC includes kits for LGA115X, LGA1366, and LGA2011 type sockets. The back plate with a "T" shape cut-out is for the LGA115X socket boards, while the "X" patterned back plate is used for the LGA1366 and LGA2011 socket boards.  Note that with an LGA2011 socket board, you have the option of using the "X" bracket with the standard pole assemblies or of using the double-threaded poles.  The double-threaded poles screw directly into the stock LGA2011 socket plate, negating the need for use of the specialized "X" back plate. For AMD AM3 and AM3+ boards, the stock back plate is used for mounting.

The screw-pole assemblies for block hold-down on LGA115X and AMD boards includes the pole assembly itself, a tapered nut screwed to the top of the pole, a tension spring, and metal and plastic washers. The spring sits in a groove in the metal nut, resting against the metal washer. The plastic washer sits underneath the metal washer, in between the metal washer and the mount plate surface. This protects the aluminum mounting plate surface from unnecessary scratching and wear. The bottom of the screw-pole screws into the back plate. Once tightened down all the way into the back plate, you then unscrew the lower nut to exert additional pressure on the tension spring. This allows for additional mating pressure between the block and CPU surfaces. For an LGA2011 board, the nut is fully removed from the base pole and screwed into the LGA2011-specific double-threaded poles after placing the plastic washer, metal washer, and spring on top of the block mount plate and through the pole.

XSPC includes dual ended 3mm blue LEDs, powered via a MOLEX connector, for CPU block back-lighting and their own branded X2 thermal compound.

For mounting the radiator, XSPC includes eight fan screws and eight short screws to affix the radiator directly to the case, black-colored to fit in with the radiator coloration. Additionally, four mounting brackets, eight rubber o-rings, and eight steel screws are included to custom mount the radiator to the outside of the case. The rubber o-rings are to minimize vibration from the fans when hanging the radiator. For connecting the water channels, six black-chromed 1/2" barbs and six plastic barb clamps are included. The 24-pin power connector can be used to power on the PSU out the system to leak test your loop in a safe location (away from your motherboard and electronics).

For mounting the reservoir to your case, XSPC includes eight black colored mounting screws. A 5mm LED, powered via a wired-in MOLEX connector, is also included to back-light the reservoir via the LED port in the back of the unit.

To cool the liquid flowing through the radiator, XSPC includes two 120mm fans and two black-chromed wire fan grills. The fans are 7-finned units rated to run at 12V and 0.18 amps. The fans are rated to run at 1650 RPM (revolutions per minutes), pushing air at a rate of up to 65.2 CFM (cubic feet per minute) with a force of 3.3 mm-H2O (mm of water) or 32 Pa (Pascals).

For connecting the radiator, reservoir, and CPU water block, XSPC includes 2 meters of their clear, high-flex tubing. The provided tubing has an inner diameter of 7/16" and an outer diameter of 5/8". It is compatible with 1/2" barbs or 7/16" x 5/8" compression fittings.
