Conclusion

When I fired up the H220 for the first time, I was shocked by the sound of it. At absolute full fan and pump speeds, it is no louder than a top tier air cooler, and worlds quieter than any of the other AiO coolers we have tested. Using standard fan controls the H220 rolls along almost imperceptibly, which is astounding with the fans and radiator on the top of the case. My first reaction was that the H220 has very similar noise levels to the NH-D14 or PH-TC14PH at like fan speeds, which makes it a very quiet and livable cooler at any speed. I truly can’t impress enough what a giant step in lowered noise levels the H220 brings to the table.

Installing the H220 was incredibly simple, and most people will be able to complete the installation in under ten minutes without a problem. The mounting kit is well made and intuitive, and the included hardware is excellent quality. Everything you need is included, even a small tube of very high quality TIM.

Test Results

Before we dive into the test results, a word or two about the noise level of the H220 is in order. While Swiftech wanted to provide a AIO water cooler that offered both expandability and great performance, they felt it was just as important to accomplish those goals while keeping noise levels low. I can tell you after spending several hours with the H220, they did a great job in this area. The pump is extremely quiet when it’s being controlled via PWM. Even when the pump runs at full speed, it still maintains a more than acceptable noise level. Keep in mind, I had the H220 on an open air bench station, so if it was loud I’d know it! Once you have it all installed and buttoned up in a traditional chassis, I doubt you would even hear the pump at all. As far as the fans go, they are almost inaudible at lower speeds. When ramped up to 100% speed, they do make some noise; but nothing I’d call annoying or overbearing by any means.

With the CPU at its stock settings and the motherboard’s PWM control handling the fans, we only see a 2° C difference between all the sample coolers when under load. However, at idle we see a larger difference. The H220 beat everything in the list at idle and matched the Cosair H100i under load.

With the CPU still at its stock speed, the fans were ramped up to 100%. Here we see the Swiftech H220 taking the lead on all fronts. What makes this even more impressive is that the H220 has the lowest maximum fan speed of all the comparison AIO coolers. In fact, the Corsair H100i’s fans run 900 RPM faster at 100% speed (1800 RPM vs. 2700 RPM).

With CES 2013 right around the corner, there is no doubt going to be a lot of new products being highlighted over the next few days. One of them is the latest AIO water cooler from Swiftech. The Swiftech H220 features a 2x120mm radiator and comes prefilled so it's ready to install into a system! One of the things that will separate the H220 apart from the competition is the expansion capabilities of the system. This means that we can add in extra cooling for the chipset or graphics cards! It looks like the H220 has some good things going for it, be sure to check back for updates as we see them at CES 2013!

Press Release

Swiftech® to unveil new H220 all-in-one CPU cooler during CES 2013

In a related announcement, the company disclosed that they had successfully developed and begun high-volume manufacturing of a new generation of Swiftech-made mini-pumps, specifically designed for the liquid cooling market. The pump combines a compact design, high-reliability (60,000 hours MTBF) and the high head-pressure performance characteristics necessary to drive multiple devices in the same cooling loop. Being PWM controlled, the device can be driven by any motherboard like a regular CPU fan. Thanks to this new pump and to substantial economies of scale, the company claims that their new H220 CPU cooler will offer thermal performance with a low to inaudible acoustic signature rivaling that of the best custom kits, all at the price of an entry level product. In the words of Gabe Rouchon, the company's Chairman and CTA, "This thing is ridiculously quiet; if the chassis light wasn't on, I couldn't even tell the system was running."

"with a 15 year heritage serving the enthusiast community, we also wanted to eliminate some of the limitations of the existing low-cost systems which are unable to accommodate add-on components because (a) they are sealed-up and offer no means to refill the system without voiding the warranty, and (b) the type of pump they use is not adequate to drive sufficient flow to cool more than a CPU. The Swiftech® H220 kit addresses both issues by featuring a reservoir with fill-port built into the radiator so that the system can be easily emptied or refilled by the user at will, and by our new high-pressure pump."


The H220 CPU liquid cooling kit is maintenance free for the duration of its 3 year warranty period, and will be offered at a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $139.95

Well done, Swiftech. It's to be expected competitors would notice the high degree of interest surrounding Cooler Master's Eisberg series over the past several months and eventually bring comparable products of their own to market.

Gabe from Swiftech is on OCN so hopefully he has time to help inform the community.

Now to see who will be the first to bring a 27-30mm or thicker 360mm AIO to market. That is, for individual sale and not as an exclusive part of a full system build purchase. If nothing else, they can release a 280mm H240 with relative ease if triple radiator AIOs are seen as too niche.

So going on what the article implies this is a Swiftech proprietary design and therefore not based on a Asetek or Coolit design; I'm kind of curious to see how it performs.

I wonder if the pump is a low power mcp350 or some other custom pump?
Swiftech makes great rads, cpu blocks, and the 35X is an amazing pump. This is a very promising AIO.

The more competition the better as it'll drive prices down and take Corsair off their high hate. 120 bucks for a cooler (h100i) that performs 3-5C worse than it's little brother (h80i) all while costing 10-20 dollars less

This is much more than your standard AIO kit. It's legit, no compromise, off-the-shelf Swiftech parts. That CPU block looks very similar to an apogee drive II (although I'm sure it's a more modest version considering what an AD II costs) and the included swiftech helix fans are excellent. This will cost much more than your dinky little H100 for good reason. You'll be able to easily add a GPU block, another radiator, etc in the future.

edit: wow at $139 this thing is a steal. Be warned this will be a gateway drug to water cooling. It can become expensive and addicting in a hurry. thumb.gif

About performance from Gabe:
Quote:
this is the same radiator core as the MCR220-res , except that frame and reservoir are smaller for maximum case compatibility; CPU cooler has the same thermal /hydraulic layout as the APD2.

At same flow, performance is identical. What the MCP35X buys you is increased power/rpm range i.e. H220 pump spins up to 3k max vs. APD2 that spins at up to 4.2k
Quote:
For example at CES we will demonstrate 3 systems using the cooler:

1 system with H220 in CPU cooling only
1 system with H220 cooling CPU + (2) gtx680 in SLI + VR's (Asus Maxiums V)
1 system with H220 + 1 MCR220 + 1 MCR240 cooling CPU + (2) HD 7900 series Radeons in XFire
