The Swiftech H2O-320 is a self contained watercooler similar to the other kits which have become much more commonly availabe. It is assembled from parts that will be quite familiar to those who have been installing their own watercooling loops, an Apogee XTL block and a MCP35X pump/reservoir with a 360mm MCR-320 radiator. All of those parts are fairly good choices, which is probably why Overclock3D was so surprised at the lack luster cooling performance of the H2O-320. The kit was loud and could not compete with others available for half the price, which lead to their suggestion to avoid it.
"We take a look at a very simple kit from Swiftech thats bursting with high quality parts. How does it perform on the OC3D test rig?"
