One of the biggest limiting factors in what you can do with watercooling is how much room you have in your case. With so much equipment to pack in for watercooling alone, space ends up being one of the chief concerns for builders and modders. And the single biggest limiting factor: how much radiator one can fit. Radiators are large, bulky, and inflexible in how they need to be installed. This can easily lead to the builder having to sacrifice cooling surface for space. There is a solution to this problem though; external radiator stands. And if you have chosen to use XSPC’s AX series of radiators, then you’re in luck. Today we will be looking at the AX Radiator Desk Stand from XSPC.
– Aluminium Desk Stand
– 4x Adhesive Foam Pads
– Torx Screwdriver
– Dimensions: 200 x 150 x 5mm
For packaging we received a plain white box with no logo’s or any insignia anywhere. Either this is a reviewers sample, or it is one place where XSPC is saving money to pass on to the consumer.
Flipping open the lid you will find the aluminum plate of the stand wrapped in bubble wrap. Also included are several (five in ours) unstuck foam pads to place on the bottom of the stand and a Torx screwdriver for installation. These items have been placed within the box with nothing to secure them. However as it is a simple aluminum plate and it is wrapped in bubble wrap I think it should be sufficiently protected from damage.
