Best side-by-side with its Non-US Selling brother Swifttech H220.

Its because its fully expandable, standalone unit, copper core radiator (most others are aluminum), and high flow pump.

I see. and what are your thoughts on the 280L worth it over the 240? This H100i isn't cutting it for me personally...
post #253 of 777
Personally, I think its still a downgrade. If you want top notch cooling and make use of the twin 140 ability you need to buy a solo and build a custom loop.

The 280L while bigger on the rad side, its a smaller inefficient pump, and the rad is aluminum, instead of copper so the heat extraction isn't as good. The fans are better, but I don't think it will make up the difference, and its not as easily customizable, so if you want to add to it, it will be a pain.

The Eisberg has the threaded connectors, all you have to do is replace with ones of your choosing and run it how you need... or go with the solo and choose your own rad and go your own way about it.

So if I want the best CL AIO Water kit this is the way to go then?

That or the CM Glacer (which is a rebranded Swiftech H220, but that on got banned in the US due to a patent dispute.)

I'm fairly sure the Eisberg has a stronger pump, but the Glacer's pump is quieter. Both have copper rads.

Stronger pump (400 L/hr vs 165 L/hr) and cheaper on newegg but either is an excellent cooler

So your vote is for the eisberg huh?

Hmmm... I hadn't considered a CM CL AIO cooler but they're looking pretty tempting now...

I went with the Eisberg for a couple reasons over the Glacer.

#1 and most important, the Glacer was sold out for 3 weeks with no ETA for restock and I was ready for an upgrade and tired of waiting. Apparently its back in stock now.

#2 the Eisberg has a bigger pump, I don't mind the noise so much as my GPU and fans are already noisy.

#3 The Eisberg has a flatter radiator, fill point is on the stand-alone pump/waterblock, so it has a regular flat rad like you would purchase for a custom loop. The Glacer has a res mounted on its rad and the fill point is there. Its nothing really important, just personal preference as I considered redoing the tubing and relocating the rad and it would need to be flatter than the Glacer allows.

Either is a nice cooler, just personal preference.
