A CLOSER LOOK CONT’D
The radiator accessory kit contains screws, o-rings and standoffs to mount your radiator above or behind your case should you chose to do so. XSPC also included a power supply jumper to aid in filling your system – a very nice addition.
The side of the AX360’s box has a stern warning about using the proper length screws for installation.
Opening the radiator’s box the first thing you see is a plastic bag filled with screws sitting on top of the bubble-wrapped radiator.
The included screws are all 6-32 thread and come in both 6mm and 30mm lengths to satisfy your mounting needs. A nice touch here is that all of the screws are black.
The radiator itself is a thing of beauty and easily one of the nicest radiators I’ve come across. The radiator itself is housed inside of a nice black aluminum enclosure that’s 1/8″ thick and pre-tapped for the 6-32 screws. This is great news for those who have ever messed with radiators with thin mounting flanges that strip way too easily.
The fin layout on the AX360 is unique in the fact that it uses two rows of fins between each coolant tube rather than a single row you typically see.
The fin spacing on the AX360 is 22FPi which is low enough to be able to use low-flow fans for reduced noise.
