Thermaltake SwordM Water Cooling System - Part 2

Author: Lee Garbutt
Manufacturer: Thermaltake

Liquid Cooling System - Radiator/Fans

The SwordM Liquid Cooling System includes everything needed to setup a basic CPU water-cooling system (additional GPU and chipset waterblocks can be purchased separately).  The radiator/fan assembly with hoses attached and the pump/reservoir unit come pre-installed inside the case.  The CPU waterblock, mounting hardware, tubing, and two bottles of coolant come packed inside the case in a separate box.

•    Integrated Radiator with two 120mm fans

•    Pump/Reservoir assembly

•    CPU Waterblock and universal mounting hardware

•    UV Reactive 3/8” ID Tubing

•    Coolant (2) 500cc bottles

Radiator/Fan Assembly

The radiator included in the SwordM system incorporates a copper tube and aluminum fins.  It is relatively large (295mm x 216mm x 32mm), which should go a long way in dissipating heat with minimal noise.  The two 120mm cooling fans are each rated for 1,300 rpm, 54.4 CFM, and 17 dBA at 12 VDC.

The radiator cooling fans blow air thru the radiator and out the side panel openings in the SwordM case. 

With the radiator assembly removed from the SwordM chassis, you can get a better look at the radiator and fan shroud construction.

Thermaltake uses black rubber hoses attached to the radiator, which provides good strength and flexibility for routing inside the case and allowing the side door to open and close freely.  Both hoses come with pre-installed fittings for making the transition to the included 3/8” ID UV reactive tubing.
