    Radiator XSPC RX360 v2

    Hello

    Is that the v2 is better than v1? I have not found a review on the v2

    And this is the RX, the most efficient of the 360​​ at low rpm?
    Or EK XTX 360 is as good?

    Thanks so much

    The RX is the King of Low RPM radiators.

    Consider the NexXxoS UT60 radiator.

    According to Martinsliquidlab radiator testing, the UT60 is the best performer @ all the fan settings (except @ 600rpm)

    Thanks for your help

    I think I would take the RX, with push/pull (Gentle Typhoon) at ~600rpm
    For performance, it will be "the same" as a push at ~800rpm?

    Or I taking the EK XTX with M3 screws (easier than 6-32 in Europe)
    I saw that on the XTX, the chambers are in brass, it is good or not?

    Thank so much

    I'm not a watercooling guru, but according to the tests I saw (mostly from Skinnee and Martin) XSPC RX, EK XTX, NexXxoS UT60 and Coolgate are all great performers at medium to low speed fans, even in push-pull configuration. And they do perform really well even with high speed fans.

    So, in my opinion, whichever radiator you pick, you'll be good. The only thing I can tell you for sure is that the EK XTX are really huge radiators (64mm thickness against the 58.2mm of the XSPC RX) so keep in mind that you'll need at least 25mm + 64mm + 25mm (tot: 114mm) of total thickness to be able to install that radiator in push-pull config. Be sure to have the right amount of space in your case if you plan to install it inside

    Thanks so much for your response

    I would put the radiator in the front of a Lian Li A77F, I saw that the RX is 63mm of thickness

    Sorry, I looked at this link --> http://shop.xs-pc.com/xsp/XSPC-RX240...ack_25299.html and the thickness is 58.5mm, maybe the previous revision is smaller, my bad.

    Anyway, with both XSPC RX Rev.2 or EK XTX you'll be good and in front of the LianLi A77F there's enough space to fit both type of radiators (the case is 220mm wide and the 5,25" drive bay in the front is 146mm wide, so it should fit without any issue since the XSPC RX Rev.2 for example is 124mm wide). You should also be able to install a couple of "L" shaped pieces of metal to hold the radiator in place

    Yeah I noticed it too, but then I saw your link to the Rev.2 and I tought that XSPC shop was listing only the previous RX revision (Rev.1).

    Maybe Rev.1 was a bit less thicker than Rev.2? I don't know, but even other shops are reporting the same thickness (58.5mm)

    Here's Aquatuning link for example http://www.aquatuning.it/product_inf...-Radiator.html

    EDIT: http://www.sidewindercomputers.com/xsrx2xrare2.html Sidewinder Computers has the Rev.2 and it's listed as 58.5mm thick

    Compared to TFC Xchanger 360, the RX360 and EK XTX 360 are more efficient or the results are identical, less than 1000 rpm and push/pull (I have not found a review with these three radiators)?

    Thanks

    My XSPC RX is a little under 60 mm so I would call 58 to 59 mm accurate. I bought mine in 2010 and thought it was a v2 but could be wrong. With the 25 mm fans and rubber washers, it is 85 mm.

    Here is a test with the TFC-Xchanger 360 vs. the RX360.

    Here is a test with the RX360, EX360, and EK XTX 360 including sub-1000 rpm fans.

    Keep asking questions and good luck.

    So:

    RX Rev.1 = 58.5mm thick
    RX Rev.2 = 63mm thick

    I searched for a couple of minutes a bunch of e-shops and even if I found someone selling XSPC RX Rev.2 the description is always wrong (58,5mm instead of 63mm)... I'm wondering if they're selling the old revision or if the radiator is correct and only the description is wrong
