Whats up with XSPC EX Description?!?! - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Hey Martin, any word on when there might be a pro review of the EX rads? I thought Skinnee was supposed to have one, but doesn't look like his site has been updated in months.

Well Martin, your input is appreciated as always. I saw data showing EX start to pull ahead of the RX at 1500, but i would love to see the difference in a controlled setup at 1850+.

I am grabbing either a 68xx or 78xx card to use in my htpc (by use not by form) and i want to grab an either a EX/RX480 but i am still trying to decide. When its all said and done, i guess the RX would be better in my case as i will care more about noise then temps.

I have a RS360 and a EX240. Yes EX is more dense then the RS. One thing i did not understand was that EX was much much thiner. Basically the RAD being 35mm it had 10mm in each side spacing. RS has much less. ~ 5mm

I've been thinking about getting my old rad bench out and starting back in on that area, but I'm not up and running just yet. I have the sensors to build with and I ordered and inline heater to try out, but I haven't constructed the new bench just yet. I will probably test it out doing some simple shroud type of testing on the MCR120 using GT15s in various push/pull configs first.

I am also considering modifying the bench in a number of ways to perhaps incorporate my anemometer for air flow data in addition to RPM, etc.

Not there yet, but I am started to look at it and gather parts.

I have no idea what Skinnee is doing, probably enjoying a much needed and deserved testing vacation or temporary retirement as I often find myself doing on a regular cycle..biggrin.gif

I feel it's important to note that these optimizations that they market are for the "curve" in performance. They're basically saying the sweet spot (where you're getting optimal performance but not getting hit with diminishing returns in a huge way) is in the lower-rpm range, though that remains to be seen. A lot of radiators built for high-rpm fans just have that sweet spot higher in the rpm range. It doesn't necessarily give any indication of real performance when comparing with other radiators, or even what the actual performance curve looks like.

HWLabs markets their 30 FPI slim GT-Stealth rads the same way:
Quote:
Achieves Black Ice® Xtreme level performance in stealth mode (low-noise/low-airflow conditions)

Though, I guess it's true if they mean it sucks as much as the xtreme does with low airflow...


Regarding the XSPC rads, it might be an interesting test to see which performs better between the RX and the EX+shrouds. Both rads would take up roughly the same amount of space that way, and the extra performance afforded by the shrouds on the EX might put it soundly ahead of the RX.
