Default Swiftech H220-X Review Part 1 of 2

Swiftech H220-X Review



Introduction:

Swiftech is a company that has been in the hardware cooling sector for around 20 years fullfilling the needs of an ever growing computer enthusiast and novices alike croud with the desire to go for better than stock cooling on their hardware , with such a vast experience under its belt they accomplish a task no other company has done before , yes that's right they have bridge the gap between the all in one liquid cooling closed loop kits and the do it yourselves customizable kits , a huge milestone accomplished by Swiftech that will change forever the way you look at the all in one closed loops kits available on the market.

This is where the Swiftech H220-X comes in , an all in one liquid cooling closed loop that is completely upgradable and fully customizable to your needs. An easy to install , completely pre-assemble , pre-fill for you all in one closed loop water-cooling kit , very easy to install and to work with. For novices and for enthusiast the H220-X offers the best performance and upgradeability available in the market beating each and everyone of all the competitions all in one closed loop liquid cooling kits available , the competiton for this H220-X are mostly made by Asetek or Coolit in the form of preassemble all in one closed loop liquid cooling kits wish uses aluminum radiators and not so high end water pump and water-block , also the small diameter /size of tubing. The big advantage of the New Swiftech H220-X it's all in the quality of the components used to build up this kit , *Powerful MCP30 high flow pump made in house by Swiftech with their own secret sauce wich is much more powerful than those used on the competition made by asetek or coolit , *Big heavy high performance 240mm cooper radiator , *The all new Apogee XL high end cpu cooler water block , *Powerful and silent 2x Helix 120x120x25mm fans with great static pressure and pwm controllable rpm speeds , *3/8 ID very flexible tubing size. But there is more , here is where the H220-X obliterate all the competition , the H220-X its fully customizable and upgradable , yes you can open this H220-X closed water loop all in one liquid cooling kit by simply unscrewing one little screw on any of the tubing connections in the water-loop, add some 3/8 ID tubing and you can attached your video card water-block and / or any watercooling blocks and / or more radiators thanks to the innovation of the H220-X the factory fittings can now be upgraded to any G1/4 compatible after-market fittings (an optional adapter is needed for the pump outlet and will be available shortly), which will allow enthusiast users to upgrade their system to 1/2" ID tubing. If you wish to add chipset watercoling blocks , add VGA water-cooling blocks , add more radiators all that is possible and much more " Endless Configurations Really " , you can get very creative with it. All this while been completely silent. You get all this for only $139.95US Dollars and comes with a 3 year full warranty for your peace of mind , while 98% of all the aio competition offers a merely 1 to 2 years warranty , the H220-X has a MTBF (mean time between failure) of 60,000 hours due to the high reliability and high quality components. The H220-X leverages Swiftech's patent pending technology initially developed with the MCR-X20 Drive series of radiators; in this technology, the pump is fully integrated into the radiator instead of being built into the waterblock. Two major improvements were implemented compared to the original MCR-X20 series of radiators. Let's get started this review shall we :

Price: $139.95 - http://www.swiftech.com/H220-X.aspx



Features & Benefits:

From virtually silent to comfortable audible noise levels Our design objective for all Swiftech products is always to minimize the operating noise while preserving high thermal performance characteristics. At its lowest speed settings, the H220-X system is virtually inaudible. At its maximum speed, it remains within comfortable audible noise levels.
Plug-and-Play The H220-X is probably the easiest AIO liquid cooling kit to install bar none, and is even easier to setup than many high-end air coolers.
Superior Thermal Performance Thanks to its copper & brass dual 120mm radiator, high static pressure Helix 120mm fans, more powerful DC pump than any other AIO on the market, and because it uses the Award winning Apogee™ XL waterblock, the H220-X kit delivers superior thermal performance to any comparably sized system on the market.
Expandable/Customizable
The H220-X differentiates itself from other AIO's by its ability to be fully customized, and to support additional liquid cooled components such as graphics cards, chipset, and/or additional radiator(s).
•From a practical standpoint, this is possible thanks to: ◦The presence of a reservoir including a fill-port built into the radiator so that the system can be easily emptied or refilled by the user at will,
◦Enthusiast grade 5/8” OD (3/8" ID) black PVC tubing fastened to swivel fittings with an elegant clamping system that users can easily remove and safely re-install.
◦The factory tubing and fittings can be replaced by aftermarket G1/4 compatible offerings of your choice (an optional G1/4 adapter is needed for the pump outlet, and is scheduled for release on 8/15/2014).

•From a thermal performance standpoint, this is made possible by: ◦The high thermal capacity of the dual 120mm copper and brass radiator
◦The powerful high-pressure pump capable of driving sufficient flow to cool multiple devices in the loop.
◦The award winning flagship Apogee XL waterblock


Automatic speed control or fine-tuning right out of the box Both the pump and the fans are PWM compliant devices, allowing the H220-X to be recognized and speed-controlled by the motherboard depending on CPU temperature just like any standard CPU cooler. As a bonus, the system includes a PWM splitter allowing connection of up to 8 PWM devices which can then be controlled as one by the motherboard.
Maintenance-free As shipped from our factory and installed as directed (*), the H220-X CPU cooler requires no maintenance during its 3 year warranty period; a system refill is recommend at the end of 3 years. Under extreme ambient conditions, the system may need more frequent refills. If upgraded by the user, the interval of time between refills will depend on how users implement their customized loop.

Reliability Both fans and pump are rated for a 60,000 MTBF (Meantime Between Failures)
Support With over 10 years of experience designing, manufacturing and setting up liquid cooling systems, Swiftech? customer service can assist you in setting up and troubleshooting your system 6 days a week, 12 hours a day.

Quick Installation Guide




The patent pending H220-X liquid cooling system is Swiftech's next generation all-in-one CPU cooler featuring a dual 120mm copper radiator, and enthusiast grade pump and wateblock. As in previous Swiftech? offerings, the product remains entirely focused on low to inaudible operating noise with extreme thermal performance, and it is engineered to appeal to the broadest possible spectrum of performance oriented users:




CASUAL USERS:
•The kit is shipped factory pre-filled, ready for plug-and-play installation, and it is maintenance free during its warranty period.
•Both Swiftech's powerful MCP30 pump and high-pressure Helix fans are PWM compliant devices, allowing the H220-X to be recognized and speed-controlled by the motherboard depending on CPU temperature, just like a regular cooling fan.
•As a bonus, the system also includes our PWM splitter allowing connection of up to 8 PWM devices which can then be controlled as one by the motherboard.
•Finally, thanks to a clear and user-friendly pictorial installation guide, it could not be easier to install and setup!

ENTHUSIAST USERS:
•The system can be entirely customized thanks to easily replaceable tubing and fittings.
•Thanks to its powerful pump it can support additional liquid cooled components such as graphics cards and/or additional radiator(s).
•The factory fittings can now be upgraded to any G1/4 compatible after-market fittings (an optional adapter is needed for the pump outlet and will be available shortly), which will allow enthusiast users to upgrade their system to 1/2" ID tubing if they wish to.





The H220-X leverages Swiftech's patent pending technology initially developed with the MCR-X20 Drive series of radiators; in this technology, the pump is fully integrated into the radiator instead of being built into the waterblock. Two major improvements were implemented compared to the original MCR-X20 series of radiators:

•thanks to a revised placement of the pump and reservoir, the H220-X radiator is now the most compact dual 120mm heat exchanger on the market, thus facilitating installation of the unit with any dual radiator compatible case.


•the reservoir is now transparent and LED backlit, allowing users to inspect the coolant level while enjoying the inner workings of the pump as can be seen below in a customized system that we presented for CES 2014.


Finally, as an immediate benefit of this configuration we were able to use our new extreme performance flagship waterblock the Apogee™ XL which resulted in enhanced thermal performance and flow rate, not to mention superb cosmetic appeal thanks to the XL's multi-color back-lighting capabilities. While only recently released, the Apogee XL has already received two Gold Awards
