I just looked on amazon and found them
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Swiftech-H320-X2-H320-x2-Fan-for/dp/B01AOG1P3U/ref=aag_m_pw_dp?ie=UTF8&m=A21BATRZ4TF8XX

Edit: What cialatano said,
Highflow have them in stock and at lower price €199,95 / £157.01 plus shipping and 10kg is less than £8.00

I too have only Swiftech and EK components in my rig. EK fittings are great, as is their coolant.

They are both great mfg, and both have made some serious clunkers as far as products.

The Predator isn't so much a "clunker" as it is being underdeveloped, and seemingly rushed to market to hit the cash cow as quick as possible. It does worry me that it may point to EK going the way of Corsair, and relying more on brand loyalty than product quality to sell units. That would be seriously disappointing.

i personally think the predator looks better if you didn't have that horribly colored disconnect...but thats a con also because you cant see fluid levels or air circulating theough the loop so..yeah...i love my h220x though its been pushing beyond its limits for almost two years...swiftech also won my repeat business due to their customer service which i purchased two 290 le blocks a mcp50x and 35x res as well as some various fittings...i currently have an ek 420 rad as well and honestly it feels like a toy compared to the swiftech and the phobya i have

I have to agree with you, I have seen several people determined to use the Predator because it is EK. I used a H220-X in my last build and it was excellent.

Ordered 2 more 140SPs for the Evolv ITX intake and the white sleeved cable combo by Phanteks for my main build. Going from 4 VGA cabled to one is feeling a bit empty redface.gif.

Yeah, consumers are way underinformed in terms of liquid cooling. EK has become the Corsair of WaCo in terms of blind devotion - but, so far, not in terms of product quality. I'm really hoping they don't go down that Corsair rabbit hole of making their products of lesser and lesser quality while raising prices until they become really expensive, but marginal in terms of quality at best. EK, Swiftech and XSPC are really key players in expanding liquid cooling, I would hate to see any of them go that route.

I'm looking at the EK Predator for the cooler but I'm not sure if I should go for the 240mm or the 360mm. The 240mm means that I can have 3x120mm fans in the front, 1 in the back and maybe push pull on the radiator if space allows it? From some pics that I have seen the 360mm means that I will have to have 2x120mm in the front and no rear fan but also push pull if space allows it?

Which one do you guys think will be the better setup?

Thanks.

Swiftech H240-X(2)

A 280x140 rad is close in size to a 360x120, about 10% smaller, and you'd have all the benefits you listed above for a 240mm rad (although 2x 140s in the front works well so i'm not sure i'd want 3x 120s there).

Thanks.

Forgot to mention....you do realize that push/pull on a slim rad like the Predator will do nothing but add noise...... Before you decide on anything on liquid cooling, you need to do some research (actual tested facts, not "my temps dropped eleventy billion degrees" forum posts). Take a look through here - http://www.xtremerigs.net/2015/02/11/radiator-round-2015/5/. I know there is a lot to sift through, but when you do, you will find that push/pull on slim rads will change the heat dissipation capabilities by a whopping 7-8%. That might translate to a degree in your liquid temp, which might translate to a half a degree in your component temps. So, you are cluttering your case, dropping $60+ in fans and having a harder time getting components to fit, and all you are getting is more noise.

Liquid cooling is not the best place to be making decisions based wholly on assumptions, or on the say so of other people who are doing it wholly on assumption. Science, physics and math need to be your best friends.

Thanks! These are Bitfenix extensions. I had most of a set on hand already, I just had to get the 24 pin because I ruined the one I had a few years ago tinkering with it. The Silverstone short cable kit works really well with these extensions, because there isn't miles of cable to hide in the back of the case.
