The most noticeable difference in the V3 are the multiple port connections, the aesthetics and the overall dimensions. The RX360 V3 core is constructed from brass tubes and copper fins. It uses a split-fin design which is the same design that can be found in the AX radiator series.
In terms of size, bigger and thicker radiators usually perform better than smaller ones. Further, oversized radiators often have bigger water tubes for better fluid flow, and more surface area for thermal transferring. While the RX360 V3 design is based on a compact profile, it has the overall measurement of 395x120x56mm (LxWxD) and tipped the scale at 1630g. This makes the RX360 V3 a little bit thinner than the RX360 V2 radiator. It has 2 rows of 2mm brass tubes with 2 passes of water flow channels to minimize flow resistance without sacrificing the thermal performance. However, the RX360 V3 has eliminated one row of the water tube to achieve the robust compact profile.
The more coolant that can pass through the radiator fins, the more heat it can dissipate. Speaking of fins, the RX360 has 13FPI Split-fin blazed to the tubes to give the radiator very high heat emitting surface area. The fan shrouds accept standard 15mm fan spacing and G1/4” fittings. The RX360 V3 comes with twelve 30mm, 6-32 mounting screws for 25mm fans, and 12x 6mm case mounting screws. The RX360 V3 sports 4x G1/4 connections; the multiple ports provide the flexibility for the user to configure the tubing at ease.
Lastly, the barbs and fans are installed onto the RX360 V3 prior to installation and connection into your water cooling loop; as you can see below:
