[TPU] Swiftech Unveils H2Ox20 Elite Series Liquid Cooling Kits - Page 2

post #11 of 65
The benefits of the Swiftech kits are the fact that the pump and reservoir are integrated (extremely well, I might add) rather than being standalone parts . The entire loop has 4 connection points for tubing, rather than eight or more.

This think this is the evolution of sealed liquid cooling systems, and if they could cut the price by a third, we would finally be rid of the junk like the H100/920/etc. Having the ability to expand and loop to contain more than the initial components is one of the great benefits of water cooling, and the current SLCS completely negate this.

I agree, you are mostly paying for the integration and ease of setup. The XSPC kit is slighty cheaper, but it has a D5 vario and requires two 5.25" bays for the pump/res. A cheaper system with similar performance would be around $60 less.

Nice thing about this kit is that the pump is one of the best available. Depending on your heat load you can just add a couple GPU blocks without hesitation.

Wouldn't the heat produced by the CPU directly heat up the pump and reduce it's lifespan?

a 3960x @ 1.5v produces absurd amounts of heat.

If you want to OC it to 5 GHz+, yes. Hell, i made a loop for my i3, but it was more future-proofing than anything else. My main concern was GPU cooling, but then i thought "why not cool everything then future-proof the CPU once i upgrade?" I just hope socket 1150 uses the same mounting holes as 1155/1156.

My heavily OC'd i3 is thankful for that. biggrin.gif

Totally agreed. It's way easier to setup this than the Rasa or Raystorm kits, considering the less leakage points. It would fit small factor cases more easily, since you do not need the extra room for a res or more tubing.

The pump is separated from the copper plate by a large chunk of acetal and there is an aluminum heatsink on the back of the pump so I wouldn't worry too much about longevity due to heat from the CPU.

That's what I thought when I bought one of their MCR220-Drive-R3 setups. Unfortunately, the extra couple inches makes mounting these things in a m-atx case quite the pain. It sure is a clean look when you get done modding your case to make it fit, though.

Man, the pump/block would be great for a SFX build.

I'm running an H2O-320 Edge HD plus an EK-VGA HF and it's wonderful. In Europe is competitively priced, similar or cheaper than buying the individual components. If you want to go compression fittings and more complex stuff from the beginning, it's not worth probably, but otherwise you get a great waterblock, a great pump, and an ok rad.

I am not sure you did the math.. considering the MCP35x pump which many agree to be the most powerful/versatile pump out there, combined with the block that make the Apogee Drive II (which is by the way one of the best waterblocks on the planet, and Im being modest), that's already $140 retail + a 2x120mm Rad, say $60, + 2 PWM fans, say $20, + 4 3/4" compression fittings add another $25, then the coolant ($10), the tubing ($5), and the PWM splitter (~$15) on top of it.. that's already $275.. you get the dual 120 kit for $240.. Now sure, you can get another pump for 1/2 the price, and cut your cost way down, and you can get a $40 waterblock.. and you can get $4 fans.. etc etc..

Look, if someone wants to pick the parts himself because it's fun, I have no trouble with that. But if you are looking for the best components money can buy in one bundle, this kit is a true enthusiast value.

Great add for my good friends and customers at Aquatuning.. you work there hehe ? J/K but same comment as above. Surely you are not serious when comparing this pump: http://www.aquatuning.de/product_info.php/info/p13016_Alphacool-DC-LT-Ceramic---12V-DC-Pro-AGB.html to the MCP35X

You are absolutely right on 1, and I partially agree with 2. From a performance standpoint, this kit was designed for everyone, not only newbies.

compression fittings are included :-)
