Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 360mm Radiator (For 3 x 120mm Fans)

100% Positive Reviews
Rated #71 in Water Cooling


Pros: Heavy, brass fittings for unused G1/4 ports, works well, fits in Corsair 750D case

Cons: None that I can think of

Alphacool and their NexXxos line are very good radiators. Their overall construction is very good and come in nice packaging. I like the fact that they make units from 30, 45, 60 and 80mm although the 80mm is literally huge and won't fit into my Corsair 750D case. When using this radiator in the roof, you do lose the top 5 1/4 external bay but you can still use many fan controllers like the Lamptron that I've installed. This radiator is mounted in the roof of my 750D with three NoiseBlocker PL12 black fans all connected to a Lamptron controller. I also have a Alphacool 280mm XT45 installed in the front of the case with two NoiseBlocker PL14's. The pump system is an Alphacool dual bay res with dual Alphacool VPP655 pumps. The flow rate ranges from 4.5 to 4.8 liters per minute. The 360 XT is easy to install and includes the correct M3.5 screws for 25mm fans, but does not include 5 or 6mm screws which it should. It also has a protective lip in case you don't use the included screws and select the wrong length. The lip protects the fins and radiator from damage. All of my fittings are Bitspower with EK22 hard tubing. The Alphacool works very well and temps are 22.5 to a max of 30 for the CPU and my GTX780 with a EVGA waterblock never gets above 60 at full load. To be fair I also have a Alphacool XT45 120mm installed in the basement of the case. Three Alphacool Rad's in total with only the CPU (Intel 3960) overclocked to a comfortable 4.2GHz, Corsair Dominator Platinum Memory 2133 MHz at its X.M.P. speed and the GTX780 connected to the loop.

My only complaint is the cheap stickers you have to install vs. an embossed logo in the Rad itself. They give you 4 so you can install them on your installation. Also, the printing on the box is wrong. It says there are 6 G1/4 inputs, but there is actually 7. The 7th makes for a perfect drain plug which I always include in my builds. Bottom line is this is an excellent radiator that I recommend for your builds.

Alphacool has been the company to introduce new developments and improvements in the radiator and water cooling sector generally many times over the last years. Following this tradition, the new NexXxos radiators are the first to truly deserve the "Full copper" attribute. All main parts, not only the fins and channels, but the chambers are also made from copper. This brings an improvement in performance where other radiators are left without a chance. The material already gives an advantage over the competition and the inner structure is up to par with the competition. Separated chambers give the coolant a clear direction, allowing high flow rates which improve the performance of the whole cooling loop. Flat chambers on the heat exchanger increase mounting flexibility thanks to the reduced overall length. Fin spacing is always an important factor in radiator design. The new series from Alphacool has a fin design which allows it to perform extremely well even with slow-spinning and medium-speed fans. This is not only pleasant thanks to the fact that it avoids unnecessary noise; it also means that the choice of fans that can be used with these radiators is not restricted. These radiators are the result of experience and powerful performance meeting future-oriented design and well-thought through solutions.
