Swiftech Releases H2O-x20 Edge HD Liquid Cooling Kits

By - Source: Swiftech PR | B 18 comments

Swiftech has released two liquid cooling kits, the H20-220 Edge HD and H20-320 Edge HD, which utilize the new Apogee HD CPU waterblock.

The liquid cooling system comes with Swiftech's new flagship waterblock, the Apogee HD. The waterblock is precision-machined from C110 copper. Thermal design of the cooling engine is characterized by Swiftech's fin/pin matrix composed of 225 µm (0.009") micro structures with two inlet and two outlet ports.

The liquid cooling systems utilizes a patent pending heat exchanger, the MCR 220 Drive Rev3 or MCR 320 Drive Rev3. These feature a built-in reservoir with dual fill-ports and caps, a MCP35X PWM controlled pump, and include two and three 120mm fans, respectively. The units can be purchased without the installed pump, which allow users to use any of Swiftech's MCP3X pumps (MCP350, 355, 35B, 35X).

Installation Examples:

H2O-220 Edge Front InstallationH2O-320 Edge Top Installation SLi
H2O-320 Edge + H2O-220 Edge
for full redundancy

H2O-220 edge + Radbox, 1/2"
tubing thru pre-existing holes

    $10 says that pump is extra loud being directly attached to the rad without any additional insulation.

    Depending on the price, I'll consider this alongside the Antec Kuhler when I'm doing my build sometime next year.

    Me feels this is a good combination H2O-320 Edge + H2O-220 Edge but they needed to have both those loops separate for the CPU and the GPUs

    In three out of the four images of the products in use (above) the hot air is being blown back into the case. That makes no sense to me. And in the bottom left image two radiators are shown to be running in series yet the caption says "...for full redundancy."; that's like someone getting RAID 0 and RAID 1 mixed up. This article needs correction and if it is taken verbatim from Swiftech's PR guys then they need to do their research before they try to sell their products.

    Well, these kits sure look quite a bit better than your standard all in one WC loops...

    It looks like the only way you could set up a redundant design - redundancy is about being set up in case of failure. If one of the two pumps or sets of fans were to fail then the system would still cycle water and keep the components cooler than not - hence the system has redundancy. Of course chances are it isn't how anyone would actually set it up in real life - they'd rather cool the GPU and CPU separately.

    I agree that the set ups look the wrong way round though, with hot air being blown into the case rather than out. Personally I'd flip the fans around.

    Actually the pump is near silent. You'll hear fans running HDD's spinning over that pump.

    That's typical...real watercooling folks ONLY trust gear they install themselves.

    You are correct...by a landslide.

    I based my comment on the review of the product at overclock3d.net

    Quote:
    The MCP / DDC pumps are renowned for needing damping when fitting to a case. Without it the noise from the pump resonates into the case and can create a hell of a racket. Swiftech have appeared to have neglected to address this point when bolting the pump to a thin walled metal radiator. The pump noise just gets amplified down the radiator body as it would a case making it incredibly annoying. Some kind of thick gasket needed to be designed for this application to make it much quieter, especially when it's almost made to be run outside of your case.


    That was like 5 months ago though so not sure if anything has changed.

    Actually the pictures are correct. When using LC, you want the coolest air blowing over the rads and outside air will always be cooler than the air in the box (unless you are using a AC to vent directly inside your box, at which point would be kind of silly to LC). Though the ambient temp inside the case may rise a degree or two, the chips will actually run cooler since the heat exchange happens at the rad instead of a heatsink on the chip, which is the main goal.

    i bought swiftech products before and found out that they had the worst quality control and customer support. i vowed to never buy from their company again. very disappointed.

    Wow, this looks great, but it's price is WAY high for me, at least.
