Swiftech H320?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Does anyone know when the Swiftech H320 will be coming out? I know the Swiftech H220 is about to come out at the end of Febuary 2013. Is there any ETA on the H320? I'm holding off I think on the H220 and to instead get the new H320 because I'm building a new custom gaming rig from the ground up. The second question that I have is there an ETA or an idea of when the Corsair 900D case is coming out? I currently have The CoolerMaster Cosmos 2 in my Newegg cart but I think I want to hold off for the Corsair 900D what do you guys think? How much bigger and better will this case be over the CoolerMaster Cosmos 2? Will the Corsair 900D be as big, beast, and badass as the Cosmos 2? By the way, I eventually want to achieve an overclock of 4.5Ghz

New gaming Rig:
LOGISYS Computer CLK15BL 15" Blue Deluxe Sound Activated Cold Cathode Light Kit *2

COOLER MASTER COSMOS II RC-1200-KKN1 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case (**** I WANT TO WAIT FOR THE CORSAIR

Prolimatech PRO-PK3-1.5G Nano Aluminum High-Grade Thermal Compound in 1.5 Gram *1 (MIGHT GO WITH INDIGO XTREME, IS IT BETTER WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK?) IDK YET.

P.S.
I'm brand new to water-cooling so I think me starting small with something like the Swiftech H320 would be suitable and quite simple for me instead of me starting off diving into full-blown water-cooling. If I want I can eventually do a full water-cooling setup down the road. What do you guys think about this plan?

The h220 is suppose to be released at the end of February. They said that the h320 will be released a couple of months after the h220 is released. So expect the h320 to be released around May or June. For the 900d the release date is also end of February. So keep an eye out for it. I'm not sure how much the 900d is compared to the Cosmos 2. Here is Specs and FAQ to the 900d.

Forget that then for the H320 I don't think it will even be worth it waiting considering the only bigger radiator and extra fan not that big of a deal I'm guessing. As for the Corsair 900D if that's the case and it will release at the end of Febuary like the H220 I'll defenitly wait for that as well just like the H220. My only question is and is the most important....how much bigger, better, bad-ass, and an overall sucsessor will it be over the Cooler-Master Cosmos 2? Especially for future water-cooling? In that Corsair 900D case.

So I was just curious and it got me thinking. If I get this Corsair 900D case, and I get a Swiftech H220 AIO water-cooling kit can I add another identical radiator with the same white fans? If so where can I buy these two things from? The reason is I will want some additional extra cooling since I want to be achieving some higher overclocks with lower temps. Can I mount two of the Swiftech dual 120MM radiators with the white fans at the top of the 900D Corsair case?

Not sure about the timing, but I am looking to do some "expansion" testing soon after finishing basic kit testing. While it won't have the same exact H220 swivel fittings you can get an MCR 320 or 220 in the same QP core just about anywhere. Swiftech.com or Frozencpu.com etc. The fans are also swiftech Helix PWM and availble on their site. Only thing you would need are chosing some barbs and clamps and extra tubing.

It is expandable so why wait. I have the Switch 810 and looking to try a 320 in top and using the H220 on bottom as a test later. Or you could go with an mcr240 up top for 140mm fan.

The custom expandable parts are all ready so you could move forward right away once the H220 hits the shelves.thumb.gif

What's a MCR 320? You refer to "220 in the same QP core just about anywhere" what do you mean? I'm a newbie. What size barbs will I need, Clamps? do those come in sizes? The extra tubing can I get it in black like the H220 has? MCR 240? what's that? What do you think about using Indigo Extreme vs. Promiltech PK-3?

swiftech uses the first number to designate the number of fans and last two for fan size. 320=3 fans x 120mm.

Other rads use a 3x120=360 format rather than 320 but they are the same thing. The h220 uses 3/8" barbs so any 3/8" barb will do. For tubing the h220 uses 3/8"ID x 5/8"OD. Their clamps are custom to the H220 but any clamp designed for 5/8"OD should work.

The radiator core on the H220 was derived from the devlopment of the mcr220-QP. Only thing different is the end tanks and built in swivel fittings.

They said they plan to sell the tubing on swiftech's site soon, but any 3/8"x5/8" tubing will do.

The H220 comes with their new TIM-MATE which is supposed to be really good like or better than MX-2. Indigo would probably give you a small boost but not sure the PK would be any better, probably similar to the TIM-Mate.

So If I just want to add an additional extra radiator for more performance and cooling for my CPU do you reccomend the MCR240 or the MCR320? I want to get some nice overclocks so yea. I will be buying the Corsair 900D case and placing the Swiftech H220 at the top on the inside of this case. Will an additional radiator like the MCR240 or the MCR320 be able to fit at the top of the case inside along in conjuction with the Swiftech H220? How difficult will it be for me to add some tubing, barbs, clamps, and a radiator? Is it pretty simple and easy that anyone can do? Brand new to this and have never done it.

You would have to look around and ask some 900D users what fits, but generally they would be pretty close. The more frontal area of radiator the more performance but fan options are more plentiful using 120mm fans. It is really not hard at all to expand with more tubing and rads and blocks, just your standard drain, add lines, fill, bleed process. I may do some "expansion" type videos on my blog if I can round up a GPU block to do the expansion with.

I did some similar videos on my youtube channel for the xspc kits listed down below here that could give you a general idea:

The H220 would be easier though with it's integrated reservoir into the radiator and more simple block mounting system. First you drain, then temp mount the parts, then measure and cut tubing to length, add clamps, then remove the loop and parts, fill the loop and bleed it outside the case for a day, and finally put it back in place. Most recommend bleeding for 24 hours to be extra sure of no leak, but it's not difficult...just takes time for the precautionary leak testing and basic DIY pc skills.
