If you remember Swiftech has to stop sales of their very popular H220 liquid cooling kit in the US because of a patent dispute with Asetek. Well Swiftech is back with their brand new patent pending H220-X liquid cooling system.
Much like previous Swiftech offerings the H220-X is focused on low to inaudible operating noise with extreme thermal performance. This system is made to appeal to casual users all the way up to hardcore enthusiasts. The unit is completely maintenance free during its 3-year warranty period, and comes pre-filled and ready for plug-and-play installation. The enthusiast users the kit can be fully customized thanks to easily replaceable tubing and fittings, and its powerful pump can easily support additional components such as graphics cards and/or extra radiator(s).
The H220-X leverages Swiftech’s patent pending technology initially developed for the MCR-X20 Drive series of radiators, in which the pump is fully integrated into the radiator instead of being built into the waterblock. It features a compact dual 120 mm copper and brass radiator, a built-in backlit reservoir with visible coolant level, and Swiftech’s recently released flagship Apogee XL waterblock for extreme cooling performance.
Gabriel Rouchon, Swiftech’s chairman and CEO declared: “Our patent pending technology is the result of years of development and it clearly demonstrates Swiftech’s ability to think outside the box. The H220-X CPU cooling kit embodies everything we stand for at Swiftech: innovation, performance, quality, and most importantly an unwavering dedication to our customers. I also want to take this opportunity to thank the entire staff at Swiftech for the passion and perseverance that have led us to this moment. Development of the H220-X has allowed us to implement several enhancements to the pump that is also at the heart of the original H220 kit, and the H220 will continue to be marketed in regions where intellectual property rights are not disputed; in the end, both H220 and H220-X have greatly benefited from these efforts, and I look forward to see them fill different market niches based on users tastes and preferences”.
The H220-X will have a MSRP of $139.95.
