I have been wondering for a while, but has swiftech ever made DIY kits based on their drive systems like this one, or is it something the seller put together?

That is a Swiftech AIO.

All the Swiftech AIOs are essentially DIY kits and they've been making them for at least 5 or 6 years now (probably longer). I have had my H240-X in my machine for about 3 years and it runs fine.
Look on the cooling kits section of the Swiftech site here.

Wait, so all drive kits come fully disassembled? All reviews and photos that i found showed it came pre-filled.

Not to mention that the rad/reservoir/pump unit from mine looks completely different from the ones I've seen before (swiftech homepage doesn't really help too lol)

hello hello,
I need to ask a question.

I have an original H240. The one with the bleeder screw going through the plastic window. (that has been long changed, screw removed, window replaced)
Its still running, keeps my 5930K (with a mild oc) nice and cool to this day.

However I see green in there. Now I know I can clean it out (which I will do) . But I am kinda thinking about getting a new one altogether and keeping what I have now for either something else or just as a spare.

Ive been thinking about the H360.

Which I am sure will fit in my case. (Phanteks Entho Primo)

My question is, considering I am already using a Swiftech CPU block would I have to change the back plate? Or would the new block line up & work with the old back plate ?

I have to say goodbye to my original H320 that had it's liquid replaced after 4 years about 2 months ago

I upgraded to 2600X and the H320 doesn't fit AM4.

Now I'm selling it, thank you swiftech for making a awesome product

I wonder, can that rad be fitted with the pump from a H240-X? If so how much are you selling it for cause I may be interested.

Not easily. It doesn't have the res, which is what the pump mounts to. It is essentially a standard rad with an extra fill port.

Bought my H320 from NCIX Burnaby late 2014

4 years of ownership its about time to replace the liquid. Also because 1 year ago temps got high had to lower the overclock

Never changed liquid AIO before but through some guides and help of posts I FINALLY change it


Its not hard as I was thinking, copper block had good amount of black junk that helped raise those temps one year ago.



Last picture is with high voltage (applied year old overclock again) now sitting strong at 84c prime95 avx 4k

My old H320 from around the same period is also still running strong.

I had the same residu on my copper as well last time I cleaned it. I cleaned the plate with a toothbrush hehe. Works really well.

Only problem is, I overtightened a screw on the block and it stripped in the pump plastic. Had to replace it with a similar self-tapping screw with coarser thread. It's not leaking but it's a bit of a shame I did that 😞.

Not using it in my main rig but in a server running Minecraft private world and a TS3 server now. Only cooling a 4.5Ghz 2600K now and it never goes above 55c.

I have a question for Swiftech owners..Is it OK to use Cool Labs Liquid Ultra Liquid Metal on a Swiftech H220X WaterBlock I have.I am going to delid the CPU anyway and wonder if its safe to put a tad on the waterblock too..I have heard great results from others who have tried this but not sure if they used Swiftech..Would like to ask here first to be certain.

I'm using my Glacer 240L on my 2700X. I just had to get the Swiftech AM4 bracket for it. I have one for my Swiftech H220 too. The coolers work fine and all I needed was the brackets to use them on the newer chips. I wish they still made these.

Yeah I figured theres some type adapter.

But really for what. My 2600X will hit 4.2ghz with 1.375v closer to 1.4v but currently 4.1ghz 1.3v

Attaching h320 just to gain 100mhz and whole 0.1v extra is not worth it.


However it was a great AIO it will be missed

Apogee SKF-LT block seems like it might do better than other blocks that have in- and out-let at the center of the block.
Microchannels orientation could be a big factor with two CCDs (as in 3900X and 3950X).
Much bigger temperature spikes from my R5 1600 to R5 3600 using my H240-X.
