    Default The XSPC RX360 V3 Radiator Review

    The 2013 was an excitement and busy year for XSPC, the company introduced over a dozen new products from the new Photon reservoir, G1 Sniper M5 motherboard water-block, eye-catching compression fittings and the pump tops - just to name a few. Once again XSPC unleashed the third revision of the RX radiator series. The RX radiator series are the most popular radiator among the water-cooling enthusiasts for its value and performance. Consequently, its design technology is dated and today’s modern radiators from the competitors are surpassing the RX radiators. That’s brought us today’s review, we’ll analyze the new and improve version of the RX360 V3 radiator.

    very nice cooling results when compared to a thicker rad. Good to know you wont have to go broke or use a really thick rad to get good results. Great review Denton! Thanks for being so detailed.

    Excellent and detailed review Deton, thanks a lot. The Rad has pretty good results in all tests, almost want to have it. XSPC really have lots of good WC stuff, but I'll keep my Phobya G-Changer 360 v2 and 240 v2 rads for now (generally slightly better tests results then XSPC).
    Always look beyond the limits...

    Fantastic review Tony. I like this rad a lot. Been toying with the idea of expanding and upgrading my loop. I think this is my next rad. Would fans in a push/pull configuration significantly improve performance over one set of fans in a pull only set up?

    Significant?

    No..keep in mind this rad is not very thick and the FPI is less than 20 count, therefore you don't really need push/pull setup. IMO, it's not worth to spend more $ for 3 more extra fans, unless you are already have the extra fans and want to use them then do it. The advantage to have 6 fans are to achieve high performance result at low speed as 3 fans at high speed.
