Unless I am mistaken that is an AX rad not an RX. But I think the AX is even better than a RX so congrats. I believe the performance grade goes AX>RX>EX.

The identifying feature of the AX rads is the metal dividers between each fan, and its extra thickness. The RX is about the same thickness without the dividers, and the EX has no dividers and is thinner.

No, you are mistaken...Then RX is better than the AX. And I did not say his was an RX. I was just saying that I receieved my kit today as well.

Nah, the RX V3 beats out the AX at most fan speeds/airflow. You need a lot more airflow for the AX to come close and beat the RX.

AX is 40mm thick, RX V3 is 56mm thick and EX is about 35.5mm thick.

The AX series is ~45 inches thick, and the RX series is ~60 inches

The AX is 40mm thick and the newest RX V3 are 56mm thick (I believe the V2 was 58.5mm thick and V1 was 63mm thick).

The RX series has always outperformed their AX and EX rads overall by quite a bit, and the newest RX V3 is almost inarguably the best all-around performing rad ever made at both low and high fan speeds.
