Swiftech announced today that they are withdrawing sales of their H220 Water Cooling Kit in the United States. This is probably why everyone we recommended the cooler to could not find it over the past month or so. The reason for the withdraw is that Asetek claims that the H220 CPU cooler infringes on their US patents 8,240,362 (the ’362 patent) and 8,245,764 (the ‘764 patent) and to cease selling, offering for sale and importing the H220 CPU cooler in the United States.
In the computer world, every once in awhile a company that is thought of as bargain basement starts to come out with great products. In this case we’re talking about XSPC. Usually considered at best to be entry level, not many would give XSPC a second look for pure performance. That is until they released their first Raystorm blocks. Now not only are they affordable, but they actually stack up against the big name water cooling manufacturers. And that leads us to today’s review, the XSPC RayStorm 750 RS240 Watercooling kit. This kit has everything you need to build your own custom watercooling loop. Let’s take a look…
EK are a frontrunner in the watercooling scene, manufacturing attractive yet functional products that are in use by many across the globe. EK’s latest line, CSQ, is a fusion of sharp edges and rounded curves, designed to fit stealthily into any system without compromising the aesthetics of any particular component – yet standing out by itself all the same.
Today I’m working with EK’s H30 HFX 360, a complete water cooling kit that provides their latest and greatest CPU block, the Supremacy, with a full 64mm thick 360mm radiator. Also provided in the kit are all the required fittings, a pump, a reservoir, tubing and all mounting hardware. We’re very excited to test this kit, and we hope you are too. Keep reading as we unbox, install, and test the performance of EK’s kit, along with my own personal feelings towards the end.
We are slowly getting into DIY watercooling kits and thanks to EK we have our first real kit.
