    World's First: the new XSPC Radiator EX 360 in Cartago's Review

    Hello and welcome

    Today in the review I want to introduce the brand-new radiator XSPC EX360.
    The company has long been successfully XSPC Water Cooling on the sector.
    The previous radiators were designed mostly on slowly rotating fan and had corresponding, relatively large dimensions.
    The RX Series is one of the most successful series radiators worldwide, in performance and build quality at a very high level stands.
    However, the radiators are not just with its 60 mm thick and need to save space, if they should be installed internally, most very large case.
    And not everyone is a tower-like monsters are in room, remains the choice of so-called Slim radiators quite small, there has XSPC radiators positioned the new EX series.
    Since the thin radiators are known to be the best, they need fans with a little more speed. But they fit into almost any clean housing.

    Now we come to the EX 360 radiator, here are the specifications:

    Length: 395 mm
    Width: 120 mm
    Thickness: 33 mm
    Material: brass chambers, fins made of copper
    Connections: 2x1 / 4 "
    Fan mounting screws with UNC 6-32

    EX 360 Radiator
    Of 12 black screws in the length of 30 mm and 6 mm.







    The packaging of the radiator is designed very simple and elegant, centered on the lid is the XSPC logo and see right below the name of the radiator.
    As you can see from the pictures, the radiator is processed very clean, including the quality of the coating has increased significantly.
    The coating is applied cleanly and has a velvety surface, the "Tangible" Quality is beyond doubt.
    The side of the radiator is very well laid out XSPC embossed logo, all threaded holes are clean.
    The fin spacing is much narrower than at the RX series, eventually the radiator can cool even the most demanding systems, and whether he succeeds in showing the following tests.

    test system and test procedure.

    Mainboard: Gigabyte P67 Professional
    CPU: Intel Core i7 4.5 Ghz @ 2600K at 1.35 V
    RAM: 16 GB (4x4GB) Corsair Vengeance
    Graphic: POV GTX580 TGT
    PSU: be quiet! P9 850W
    HDD: Samsung HD502HJ F3
    Housing: Xigmatek Elysium Super Tower

    water cooling:

    CPU: EK Water Blocks Supreme HF Full nickel
    Graphic: EK Water Blocks EK-FC 580
    Pump: Phobya DP-12 400
    Conditions: Alphacool HF 38 Cape Cyclone 150 V.2
    DFM: AC High Flow
    Temperature sensors: 2x Phobya IG / AG
    Monitoring: Aqua Computer XT 5 Aquaero
    Quick couplings: 4x Koolance VLN3
    Hose: 16/10 Masterkleer
    As the liquid was distilled water with Phobya ZuperZero Clear Concentrate

    circuit design:

    terms> Pump> Graphics Cards> CPU> 2xKupplungen the radiator> DFM> Terms

    Sensors on one input / output of the radiator mounted.

    I tested with the well-known programs Prime95 (In-place large FFTs) and simultaneously FurMark 1.8.5 (Xtreme burn-in mode), then ran the whole 60 minutes per pass, while the radiator is external in the booth next to the housing Phobya mounted.
    To understand better the values ​​obtained, this test is the MagiCool Slim 360 Radiator, as a reference in the low-RPM radiators, and the Koolance Radiator, 3x120mm serve 30-FPI Copper as a representative of the high-RPM radiators.
    As fans were used Phobya nano-G 12 RED LED PWM Silent 1500rpm as they with their area of ​​between 600-1500rpm, are ideal for this test.

    So here the results:




    As can be seen from the tables, positioned the new EX 360 XSPC radiator at the top of the "Slim" radiators in my test.
    This is also clear that the XSPC radiator has not been designed in such a high rpm fan speeds rather special for the area by 1000 u /.
    But minutes into the deepest regions of the 600 u /. makes the radiator still a good figure, of course, there are better radiators in this area but that is bought with a significantly greater thickness.
    For those for which is such a thin radiator are used, this is my new radiator 360 EX personal reference dar. He is a very good compromise between cooling performance and size.
    The workmanship is very good and surpasses that of the RX series in every way, here XSPC has increased significantly. Also, the presentation and delivery vote, missing only the good end only fan decouplers.
    Provides the needed performance and very good processing quality, allowing the new XSPC Radiator EX 360 Cartago's Review Award in Gold.


    I hereby wish to thank the company XSPC for the provision of and test pattern and I have placed trust and the company Aquatuning for their support and provision of the fan and radiator comparison.

    How does this perform compared to the RX series? XSPC are saying it should be at least as good but this is the only review I can find and you don't compare it to the thicker rads.
