Swiftech Launches Drive X2, Drive X2 Prestige AIO Liquid Coolers

Swiftech introduced two new series of all-in-one liquid cooling systems that build upon the success of the company’s H220 X series coolers by using updated components and adding RGB lighting to keep up with the latest trends.

Swiftech has six new liquid cooling systems divided into two different series. The company said the Drive X2 series is meant to be an affordable option for the average person, and the Drive X2 Prestige series is targeted towards the enthusiast that wants a more premium package.

Both the Drive X2 and Drive X2 Prestige series share most of the same components. Swiftech swapped the Apogee XL block that was included with the H220 X with the updated Apogee XL2 CPU block with a chrome plated copper base. The company said it redesigned the block to use a 100% acrylic top that lets you see the coolant flow through it.

Swiftech said both lines of Drive X2 coolers make use of completely redesigned radiator/pump/reservoir combos. The new coolers include a full size acrylic tube reservoir mounted to the lower side of the radiator that provides a better view of the fluid than the older design of the H220 X reservoir. Swiftech also installed Mayhem Ultra Clear Tubing, which it said was chosen for being maintenance free.

Swiftech’s new Drive X2 and Drive X2 Prestige AIO liquid coolers come prefilled with clear Propylene Glycol, but the company includes Red, UV Blue and UV Green dyes to choose from if you’d prefer a colored look. Swiftech also installed RGB lighting for the CPU block, reservoir and accent lighting on the radiator, which should allow you the freedom to customize your setup as you wish.

The only real differences between the Drive X2 series and the Drive X2 Prestige series are the fans used to cool the radiator and the fittings used for the tubing. The Drive X2 comes equipped with basic barb fittings and standard high pressure helix fans. The Prestige series liquid coolers employ Noiseblocker eLoop fans and Lok-Seal black chrome compression fittings.

    I don't get it: the Prestige series use Noiseblocker eLoop fans and yet they are noisier that base one (see the H240 X2 models)

    Slightly off topic for this article, but when will TV's add built in Bluetooth audio support? I would like to send the audio signal to my receiver then boosted to my wireless speakers. Build it in!

    Sparky, see this thread as this has previously been discussed and answered regarding sending audio from a non-bluetooth TV to bluetooth speakers. It involves getting a Bluetooth audio transmitter.

    Hope this helps.
