A semi-modifiable watercooler from Swiftech

Swiftech has made an All In One watercooler with a bit of a difference, not only will it work straight out of the box, changing the fluid and tubing will not void your warranty like many other AIO coolers.  The 269mm x 127mm x 29mm radiator has a pair of 120mm fans cooling it, an unsealed Fill Port for changing your cooling liquid and two ports for 5/8" outer, 3/8" inner tubing which can also be swapped out.  Pro-Clockers found it to be a decent performer though somewhat outclassed by coolers using 140mm fans but far more flexible and upgradeable.  If you are looking for an AIO cooler that you can add to later on then keep your eyes our for the Swiftech H220 which should be for sale in the very near future.

"Swiftech has been sitting back in the cut watching the market and seeing what to do and what more they can do to make their entry into the lower cost AiO market. That entry is the H220 Compact Drive II CPU Cooler. Gabe and company has release a cooler than is more than “an install it and leave it type” solution. This new cooler can be upgraded in many ways. Meaning you can add water blocks as your system grows, refill with the liquid of your liking, add more tubing to accommodate the added blocks as well as other steps to assure that you have a water-cooling system for a life time."

The only reason it gets outperformed by the 140mm AIO's is the fans you have on it. Those Swiffy Helix fans are really crap. They push about 2mm H20 pressure, which is VERY low for a rad and setup of this kind. The H100 fans push 7.2mm per cubic pressure per air inch in water gauge. And the Corsair fans are of much higher quality with double ball bearings or fluid dynamic bearings and push better directed airflow/more CFM as well.

Put 4 of those on it at full blast (these fans are relatively quiet EVEN at full blast) then it'll blow that crappy H110 out of the water:

To my knowledge Corsair still has not fixed the bearing issue in the H or Hi series pumps that causes a "rattle" and vibration like a failing HDD. This noise renders the fan volume moot.

I'm talking about the volume of the AIR fan pushes.

Not noise.

Doh.
