The Monstas are low fpi and are dead silent...

There main design i do think it's goal was to be able to use low Cfm fans and get a lil better results then a thin rad with high cfm fans.

They also have much higher flow rates because of bigger chambers.

Look, I understand what you're saying, it's just that the additional cost for just a couple of degrees really can't be justified for most people. The other issue is that as Martin has stated and shown through his own testing, these thicker radiators really don't outperform the thinner radiators with lower speed fans. They just don't.

Yeah, in terms of cost versus performance, just like I stated.

Yeah they cost more but i sure do like them lol.

Swiftech makes a good rad id just like to see more options is all thumb.gif

In some cases they cost nearly twice as much as our MCR320 XP, but offer no more than maybe a 3 to 5% increase in performance. I don't know about you, but I'll feel a bit ripped off. I'll be honest with you though. I was a big fan of the thicker radiators before I started working here. Once I saw that the performance wasn't really there, I felt kind of betrayed by all of the reviews that said they were so much better. I'm glad that Martin did his testing to set the record straight.

That is great news.Have they removed the board from the incompatibility list???

Hokies, lets just say you like larger and more radiators than most of the market Swiftech is targeting with the H220. The pump in this loop would not have the flow to be able to handle 3 of your monsters, a chipset, memory, and a couple GPU blocks. The loops you seem to be into are much more complex than what this product is aimed for. If the loop you imagine would generally use multiple MCP35 pumps in order to keep flow high enough while noise is low, you aren't likely to use the H220 for your pump.

I'm all for choice, and I think this product did a great job of filling a niche in the market which most companies were ignoring. Most pumps which were overkill for simple water loops, but they still charge you the premium cost. The H220 essentially gives you the AD2 minus the large premium for the overpowered pump in a small loop scenario. Lets not advise swiftech to venture out of this niche, when the success of this product is that very niche market they targetted.
