XSPC RS360 Radiator

This is the first in my series of triple radiators the XPSC RS360.  The RS360 is XSPC’s more value oriented radiator in a slim form factor.  While extra thickness can show some performance advantage by 10% or so, it’s not double as you might expect and cutting the materials down into a slim form factor generally nets you a better value.  The RS360 is a standard 120mm slim triple in that is utilizes the more standard 15mm fan spacing and a more narrow core at 121mm in width.  This radiator is slightly tuned for more medium to high-speed fans per XSPC’s website although I wouldn’t necessarily consider it a high density radiator either.  This was the first radiator I received and I think a great place to start

A special thanks to Paul from XSPC for providing the review sample:

Manufacturer Specifications:

High Performance Copper Fin Radiator

– Matt Black Finish
– Dimensions: 121x35x397mm (WxDxH)
– 19mm Flat tubes for reduced flow resistance
– 1 Row 11 Tubes
– Compact Design
– G1/4″ Ports
– 6-32 Screws

Supplied with mounting screws

There are a few noteworthy specs here including the “Compact Design” which it is at only 121mm in width and 35mm depth. Also note that the radiator uses 1 row of 11 tubes, so this does mean that there will be 6 tubes one way and 5 the other.  Also you have 6-32 SAE screws.  I tend to prefer the finer threads of M4 myself, but 6-32 works ok and much better than M3.
