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.
Introduction In the forum, we often get asked – “what is the best water cooling block?” – but we seldom get asked about the radiator. For as much attention and dedication as water blocks have been given throughout the years, the radiator (heat exchanger) has sat as a dark horse and unheralded system component. Yet, of course, it is a necessary part of the whole cooling system. Luckily times have changed. In the last few years we’ve seen some glamorous high quality build radiators surface on the market. Watercool has a well-earned reputation for manufacturing top notch water cooling products for enthusiasts. The Heatkiller water block series provide one of the best water blocks available from the German water cooling pioneer. Today we are going to focus more on their HTSF2 heat exchanger to see how it compares to their excellent water block series. The HTSF2 stands for Heat-Transformer and the number 2 represents version two. Watercool offers two flavors for the HTSF2 series; the LT and LTX. These are available in single (120mm), dual (240mm) triple (360mm), and even in quad (480mm) size. We have the HTSF2 3×120 LT in our water-cooling lab and we’re ready to put it through some rigorous tests to see if its performance is as good as its glamorous aesthetics. Read on to find out more.
We don't often write enough reviews on PC water cooling heat exchangers. Often referred to as radiators or rads. However when an intriguing product surfaces on the market, we will jump on it.
