XSPC AX360 Radiator
Normally we don’t do modifications to review samples but since we don’t have the painted version of the AX360 radiator to compare its performance, we decided to do an experiment with some paint work. We gave the bare core a few coats of RustOleum high heat paint to see if it impaired the thermal performance.
The visual results are astonishing! The matte black colour contrasted really well with the anodized silver. Match that with the chromed ports and it accents the sexiness of the AX360.

We strapped the AX360 back on the test bench and found out it has no significant thermal performance loss; the results are almost identical. We did notice the painted core has less heat emitted in the passive mode; however, it is a negligible number of only +0.1°c higher. Keep in mind, our results don’t represent XSPC’s Matte radiator therefore your results may vary due to the different paint that we used.
Let’s wrap things up.
