    Rouchon Industries Inc., dba Swiftech today announced the release of the H220-X all-in-one CPU liquid cooling kit. The patent pending H220-X liquid cooling system is Swiftech's next generation all-in-one CPU cooler featuring a dual 120 mm copper radiator coupled to an enthusiast grade pump and water-block.

    As in previous Swiftech offerings, the product remains entirely focused on low to inaudible operating noise with extreme thermal performance, and it is engineered to appeal to the broadest possible spectrum of performance oriented users ranging from casual to hard-core enthusiasts. For casual users, the kit is shipped factory pre-filled, ready for plug-and-play installation, and it is maintenance free during its three year warranty period. For 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".

    MSRP: $139.95

    IF it leaks, do they cover the hardwares affected?

    The original H220 is comparable to those already. Waiting on some reviews to see how much flexibility can be had with the pump on this model (i.e. can it be used as a stand alone with a different rad?)

    It's about ****ing time they release this!

    I don't like how the res/pump block the area that would otherwise be used for a push pull fan...
    Looks like 3 fans max. :/ I'd rather get the H220 with the upgraded pump.

    Ignore him, he's an idiot. The H220 is a solid performer so I believe this one will follow suit.

    So will this be released in the US?

    "copper and brass radiator, a built-in backlit reservoir with visible coolant level" Nice touch

    I believe it's just an unsuccessful pun, because what all pumps ever do is suck liquid, get it?

    You can't cool both a CPU and GPU with a NH-D15. And these kits are upgradeable.

    Closed premade Loops sucks donkey ass!!! Both from performance and built quality point of view. If you are going to cool some expensive and high end hardware like let's say Asus rampage IV BE + i7 4960X etc, better to make your own custom loop !!

    All aboard the hastily made conclusion train!

    Of course a custom loop is better, but then this is not a closed loop cooler either.

    This will be released in the US. As the Patent the pump is not on the block.

    If you bothered to read anything you see it is the same pump, block and rad is used on there custom system.

    Push/Pull does very little in temps when the rad is low FPI. Too beat the Asetek patent (look it up) this design had to be done.
    Wouldn't say champions to those rads either.

    For a GPU you get a Arctic Accelero Xtreme ofcourse. They are the Noctuas of GPU Cooling.

    lol, how about looking to see how they fare for actual customers and not a review site.
    Examples

    and even cases of people's pumps catching fire. both the Hx20 and Glacer brethren have major issues.

    The only person that needs to be ignored is you. Attacking a person directly for trying to prevent people from purchasing a potentially faulty product is not good for this commmunity and it doesn't fit with "Cool Vibrations".

    I am pretty sure that this will handle what it is suppose to and then some. I for one have the h220 model and I currently have it hooked up to a hydro copper 780, an oc' haswell @4.6ghz, 1 480 rad, 1 120 rad and a reservoir and my temps are great my processor dont pass 65 degrees after hours of gaming and my hydro copper usually stays around 42-48(c). I am pretty sure that this thing will be better than the h220 by probably another 5-8 degrees...so I am getting one.

    They told me they don't cover leaks and shit like that. Meh. Stick with Corsair. They'll replace the entire PC. They can shove those single digit difference in temperature up their anus.

    I think he is correct on his assumptions. I own the H220, and only had it replaced once for the revised version. You be surprised how many have not mention the problems. Any product can have issues, not everyone comes onto forums and say so.

    Think again. Corsair only replace on a case by case situation. Already had people who did not get there system replaced.
    This is the same with any watercooling system, leaks can happen. It is no different with the H220/H220X, they are not like the CLC you see everywhere.
    As for leaks on Swiftech, it is case by case when that happens. As long the system has not been taken apart.
