One of the biggest selling points of Swiftech’s all in one cooler, the H220 is it’s claim to be a fully expandable liquid cooling system. By this they mean it is possible to add other cooling elements to the self contained loop. This would mean that for the price of only $139.99 USD you can buy for yourself the complete set of core components needed for a custom liquid cooling loop, something that would normally cost around $300. The main components include; a pump, a radiator, a block for the component you wish to cool, and a reservoir. Starting off from these items you can now easily add any other element from your rig to the loop. If their claim is true, the sky’s the limit, you can liquid cool anything from your gpu to your chipset, to your ram. Not keeping cool enough with just the 240mm radiator? Throw an additional radiator into the loop as well! Follow along as we explore how to work with a liquid cooling loop, and find out just what the limits of this “expandability” are.
At first I started only to design the side panel. Because the original side panel was lost by the courier or claimed so after I sent it for custom window. But then more and more ideas came in, even though this is my first time modding, I said to myself just to give it a try. Monochromos means single color, which is why I used black and white. Because black is one color while white is sometime known as not ‘a’ color because it is the result of combination of all the rainbow colors.
Long Beach, California based company Swiftech is known industry wide as one of the forefathers of liquid cooling. In 1999 they began developing peltier based cpu coolers for advanced overclocking which led Swiftech to begin working with liquid cooling solutions. Known today for their excellent quality water pumps, radiators, and liquid cooling blocks, Swiftech is easily one of the market leaders in the mainstream liquid cooling market. Until recently however, they have stayed out of the all in one (AIO) cooling solution game. Now, after 3 years of development, they have announced the H220. Aimed at the average user interested in liquid cooling but not yet ready to jump into a full blown custom loop, the H220 claims to be an affordable, adaptable, and silent cooling solution for all users. Follow along as we take the H220 through the gauntlet to see if it really is all it claims to be.
Last week we saw EK release their full-coverage water block for the GeForce GTX Titan and now Aqua Computer has released theirs. This new water block is part of the Kryographics series and is aptly named Kryographics GTX Titan. The block is made of 10mm thick copper which covers the GPU, RAM and voltage regulators. The top is made of stainless steel and has a laser-engraved logo. There is also a Plexiglas top surrounded by a stainless steel frame included.
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce EK-FC7970 Matrix, a Full cover water block engineered specifically for award winning ASUS Radeon HD 7970 Matrix series graphics cards. This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it’s VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC7970 Matrix water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps.
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce world’s first full-cover water cooling solution for the latest NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan, the most powerful graphics card to date. The water block is called EK-FC Titan and has already made it’s debut in ORIGIN PC’s high(est) end gaming computers.
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce the EK-FCQK5000, world’s first water cooling solution for NVIDIA Quadro K5000 professional graphics card, the key part of NVIDIA Maximus Technology. EK-FCQK5000 is a high performance full-cover water block for nVidia Quadro K5000 series professional graphics cards. This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it’s VRM to remain 100% stable under any given workload.
EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to officially release the EK-FC7990 incl. Backplate, a Full-Cover water block for undisputedly hottest gaming graphics card in the world – Radeon HD 7990 – bundled with aluminum backplate. EK-FC7990 is a high performance full-cover water block engineered specifically for PowerColor/VTX3D/Club3D Radeon HD 7990 series graphics cards. This water block directly cools both GPUs, RAM as well as both VRMs (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it’s VRM to remain stable under high overclocks.
Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, announces its expansion to its All-In-One (AIO) watercooling line. Creating the industry’s first AIO liquid cooler in 2004 with the Aquagate Series, Cooler Master strived to improve the design and technology that runs its AIO solutions before signaling their return. The result of which is a unique pump and block design that sets itself apart from a sea of copies – The Seidon 120M and the new Seidon 120XL and 240M. It continues the promise of continuing a long line of quality and affordable AIO solutions from Cooler Master.
Here is a word that we are almost inundated with these days. It seems that everyone is so desperate to prove themselves unique they grasp at, and identify with, terms such as this. In the end, it just makes all such products blend together into a group identified with overly emphasised phrases and words. And so it is with utter disdain for this products name that we present to you a 240mm closed loop liquid cooler brought to us by Thermaltake (Tt), the Water 2.0 Extreme. Read on to see if this “Extreme” truly is “of a character or kind farthest removed from the ordinary or average” or just an average cooling product to be avoided.
