Tubing and a 500 ml (17 oz) bottle of Swiftech HydrX coolant come included. The variant that includes H2O-220 Elite radiator is priced at US $239.95, and the one with H2O-320 Elite at $279.95.

The fan header bus is a nice touch. Just wish they made a 1x120mm version

Cosmos II

Guys please answer does this fit on top of the cosmos ii according to the manual on swiftech website it only mentions cosmos S and not cosmos II.

PS: I'm talking about the 320 (3 fans on top)

Waiting for replies, thx.

Maybe you should try contacting the manufacturers rather than asking on a forum, since it's unlikely that anyone here would know...

Yes it will fit without problem. You can mount 3 x 120mm fans up top and the radiator to the fans.

Are you kiddin? Cosmos II it's not big, it's not enormous, it is humongous! - of course it will fit. Look at that case, you can fit 3 bodies in there ;)

3 bodies won't fit in Cosmos II. Only one will, but you must chop off legs first.

But you can fit a whole computer in it and you will have free space for XBOX, PS3 and a hamster terrarium inside :)

Cosmos II

First a thank you to the ones that answered without any troll (an email sent to swiftech).

Second to the troll guys, actually cosmos II is big from the outside as any other human would say but when u actually buy it and try to install some components you will see that it doesn't fit a normal 320 radiator which has a 60mm thick and alot of waste space from the inside (it requires modding for a perfect liquid cooling), in the other hand a 35mm will be installed without any problem which is in this case is swiftech products, but the problem is "320" which means 3 fans rather than 2, you might have a problem with the extra added cm on each corner, thats why i asked this question to be in the safe side.

If i brought a whole liquid equipment it would cost me in total $400 (good quality) but they doesnt come installed together also i should pick the components correctly for each fittings etc..

That's why a liquid cooling kit makes the task a lot more easier, i was recently looking to build a new pc which will include a 3970x and at the same time trying to invest in a liquid cooling solution unfortunately i couldn't find as the swiftech old products dhas some problems to mention one the fan noise. This new product might be the one i'm looking for.

In another note waiting for reviews of this product.

Regards

I had an original Apogee Drive kit and it was a giant piece of shit. I had to send the unit back 3 times because I couldn't get it to stop leaking. After receiving the 3rd unit it was still leaking so I decided to forgo the warranty and seal the damn thing myself. Once it was sealed and working the pump lasted a whopping 6 months with minimal usage. Then there was the customer service or lack-there-of from Swiftech. It took them 6 weeks to get my 2nd unit shipped back to me. After fighting with my POS unit I noticed that a few months later Swiftech discontinued the product. At the time every review (or 90% of them) said they had leaks around the pump/block base. This was the same damn thing I experienced.

This looks awesome! This is essentially what I have running right now, but pre-made for people who don't want to mess with fittings and stuff.

The Apogee pump/heat sink is a great idea to save space in a tight fit, and the black fins on it match up with my adjacent memory. My only complaint is that you can't always position the reservoir far enough up above the pump to deal with cavitation problems.

the 3x120mm rad performance is amazing in every setup custom or like this sealed you can cool CPU/GPU/ even chipset without worries.


Beyond ... For what i think is overkill...
