Linus has a review video of the X2? I thought he hasn't review them yet, he only has a video from CES 2016 just showing the X2 coolers and that's it.

Updating my previous post, I went over to my friends place to investigate his potentially leaky unit that he received today. With the pump running, there was indeed a leak that appeared to be somewhere around where the pump and reservoir are attached (It's possible there was a crack in the acrylic where I was unable to see it). It would've been impossible to find the exact location of the leak without doing more disassembly than it was worth doing (considering the product can just be RMA'd). I took a couple cell-phone pictures of where I saw water leaking (these pictures were taken after pump was running for around 2 minutes after I thoroughly dried everything with tissues and napkins), and told my friend to just start Newegg's RMA process.

A little ironic with water leaking out just below the 'QC Pass' sticker.

Tell your friend that he shouldn't be too surprised, Switch isn't exactly know for Quality in regards of their AIOS coming from someone who went through a **** ton of H220s and 3 H220Xs. Something to learn here is to never buy their products on release and wait for the 2nd maybe 3rd revision if they go that far.

Which is why plenty of people I know and myself gave up on their AIOS and went to EKWB, corsair for one, or decided to build a custom loop(if your intent was to expand) Which is an area where Swifttech is some what decent at, i.e. Radiators Pump some blocks.

There is a reason why Swiftechs AIO are so cheap, compared to a company like EKWB

Yea it's kinda suck that all these X2 coolers are out but no one review them yet besides that H320 - X2 Prestige review from Tweaktown.
We need to see how's the H240-X2 prestige perform and compare to the other coolers, EK 240 and as well as a real Custom Loop.

Not to bag onto EK, but you know EK's predator had a recall and a reported leak right? It's normal for any company to have problems. Corsair has an 87 page thread on pump problems. Just don't be the guy to try anything that the first for many products that test the water (no pun intended)

the predators even the post recalled ones are having some pump issues too... im beginning to think its issues with the manufacturers they are buying the rubber seals from...both ek and swiftech have had some issues with this... don t get me started on corsair...im thinking the problems here are the outsourced parts that are failing...they are using what are generally considered quality parts but they are not getting the quality from said manufacturer as they used to...from porous o rings to pump failures...to say ek is doing so great is a fallacy... each company right now is having some issues... honestly i hope both of these two top tier companies swiftech and ek get things ironed out and get things rolling... nothing like good competition to drive innovation... as weve seen already with both companies... dont throw swiftech under the bus nor ek.... itll get fixed... both are handling things properly....

Yeah the thing with EKWB is that they live up to their quality reputation, and had a complete recall for all 1.0 and offered the 1.1 as a replacement, refund, and would pay for any damage that their cooler may have caused. According to linus they said it was like 5-10% of units that had the leaking issue, but EK decides to recall all 1.0s(good on them) Swiftech on the other hand do not do any of that other than giving you solutions to fix or a new unit. no recalls or anything when they know their product is at fault.

and with my personal experience I can say that corsair H100 lasted way longer than my 4 brand new H220s(got one RMA after the other) . Since I had so many problems with the H220 swiftech hooked me up with the H220X(good for them) then sadly I got problems with the pump on that, then another one leaking from the bleed port. Which they said they would give me a new one, so now I've had like a good 6 returns, and BS from shipping to them and waiting.
I gave up, chucked the cooler out, Built myself a custom loop using all Swiftech parts except for fittings, cpu block, and Res (i7 3770k build which I use at the office now, lucky me=) ) then a Noctua d15 for my new x99 build at home. which I am considering to go custom again until I saw the H320X2 that caught my eye, but I held off to wait for swiftech to fix their **** again then buy a revised one, because I remember how sad their QC is in china factories. Why I don't go custom again? I'm lazy..

Will give an A + job to swiftech for their customer support, due to my situation and friends I would assume they get a lot of emails and complaints about their previous AIOS. Maybe the H320X2 will fix their rep?
I know Swiftech can make some great quality watercooling gear, I just don't understand why their all in ones are like the complete opposite of all their other products.
