With so many water cooling radiator options on the market, it’s no wonder that people have trouble choosing which is best for their loop. There are many things to consider: price, performance, size, and style. One option that ticks many boxes is from XSPC, the AX240. Follow along as we take a look at this sleek radiator and find out if it may work for you.

The AX240 comes in a slim box that as you would expect is roughly the shape of the radiator. Plain black with the XSPC logo printed in the center in white and the product name on the bottom right, the box is very simple and gets to the point.
Flipping open the lid you will find the radiator in a bubble wrap shroud with both sets of screws in a bag on top. To protect the radiator fins from the screws XSPC was wise enough to place a piece of cardboard underneath.
The packaging seems just sufficient enough to protect the radiator from damage.
