    Hello Guys, I have been away from forums for quite some time, being busy to prepare for the big announcement below. Unfortunately, I won't be able to answer many questions for now, being completely buried by last minute details, but I hope that you will find the information of interest :)

    Press Release, for immediate release

    Swiftech® is proud to announce the imminent release of the H220 CPU cooling kit, a new all-in-one liquid cooling system compatible with all current Intel® and AMD® desktop processors that will ship to consumers already pre-filled for plug-and-play operations. Setting itself apart from similar offerings, the product will also feature full expansion capabilities to include additional cooling devices for graphics and or chipset. The H220 will be unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show held from January 8th to 11th in Las Vegas, NV and Swiftech® will demonstrate several systems featuring the new cooler capabilities at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Penthouse suites.

    In a related announcement, the company disclosed that they had successfully developed and begun high-volume manufacturing of a new generation of Swiftech-made mini-pumps, specifically designed for the liquid cooling market. The pump combines a compact design, high-reliability (60,000 hours MTBF) and the high head-pressure performance characteristics necessary to drive multiple devices in the same cooling loop. Being PWM controlled, the device can be driven by any motherboard like a regular CPU fan. Thanks to this new pump and to substantial economies of scale, the company claims that their new H220 CPU cooler will offer thermal performance with a low to inaudible acoustic signature rivaling that of the best custom kits, all at the price of an entry level product. In the words of Gabe Rouchon, the company’s Chairman and CTA, “This thing is ridiculously quiet; if the chassis light wasn’t on, I couldn’t even tell the system was running”.

    Mr Rouchon also stated: “User convenience and the vast movement of novice builders towards liquid cooling was a critical consideration in the H220 design. It dictated that the kit would be pre-filled and completely plug-and-play. As a result, tuning and operations are as simple as using a regular CPU cooler. But with a 15 year heritage serving the enthusiast community, we also wanted to eliminate some of the limitations of the existing low-cost systems which are unable to accommodate add-on components because (a) they are sealed-up and offer no means to refill the system without voiding the warranty, and (b) the type of pump they use is not adequate to drive sufficient flow to cool more than a CPU. The Swiftech® H220 kit addresses both issues by featuring a reservoir with fill-port built into the radiator so that the system can be easily emptied or refilled by the user at will, and by our new high-pressure pump. It all seems that 15 years of innovation and know-how, together with some of the most extensive R&D we ever conducted have led us to this moment, and we are truly proud to present a solution that finally bridges the gap between full custom and sealed-up liquid cooling kits”.

    The H220 CPU liquid cooling kit is maintenance free for the duration of its 3 year warranty period, and will be offered at a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $139.95

    Excellent pricing. Hopefully performance is excellent too ,but I cannot see any reason why it would not meet my own expectations.


    Let us know when it hits retail Gabe, I'll buy at least one for sure.

    Any chance of a 140mm variant or selling the slim pump/block separate?

    It is a bit premature to make any firm announcements now, but we do have every intention to fully expand this product line ;)

    Tubes and radiator looks OK, Pump.... not so great, but that is easy to mod with one shine black part. Fans need better if someone want to cool CPU and GPU. Example Gentle Typhon AP-00 2150RPM x4. I can beg that can hold 4.5GHz and HC graphic card under 60C. For fast installation and 135$ absolutely OK. Only need to see if Swiftech will show like everybody expect from that name.

    As a fan and user of Swiftech watercool solutions since years ago, i hope this makes a serious competence to other all-in-one solutions proving that this company is still on the way with the same competitive prices as always. I'd love to try one of those.

    Keep up the good work!

    PS: Only thing i don't like it's the tubing, used to white/colored transparent tubing with the swiftech kits, is this one opaque or transparent with black liquid?

    It's black tubing, and you can use after market tubing it if you want.

    Nicely done product. It will do well against the Corsair, CoolIT and Asetek kits that are of the same configuration. If the pump does very well, this will set Swiftech above the rest of the crowd.

    Since this kit does have a fill-port, taping the one line would allow a GPU to be added by the end user later. It a winning solution.

    Also, nice touch with the black oetiker type clamps. :cool:

    I saw Gabe post on another forum that this kit was built so that if you need to service it, want to change color of tube, or whatever, you can.

    That alone makes it several step above the others. I WILL FOR SURE be buying one of these as soon as they hit retail, I believe Gabe said production is to start next month.

    Ha bmaverick, you's too fast. +1 to your post then. :p

    I'm fairly sure this will be the best AIO on the market when it hits, merging the best of the AIO and the best of the custom ;)

    What about offering one kit with the Apogee Drive II? Would it make skyrocket the price?

    I thought about temps with example 3770k(4.5GHz) and EVGA GTX680 4GB Classsified HydroCooper higly overclocked with EVBoot on this.
    Because this cooler can be perfect option for HydroCooper cards.
    I mean Accelero Hybrid cost 150 and look like c... this can be good with red tubes plus and for one graphic. CPU/GPU under water for 135$. Off course you need GPU block but that is together with graphic card under warranty under water for 5min. They say power of pump is more than enough for something like that.

    The block and pump look big. Does somebody know how much the block and pump weigh?

    Amazon says the apogee drive II is 1.3(590 grams) pounds. The pump/block looks like an apogee drive II and should weigh about the same.

    It's not the same design. Look at the video posted above. This is an entirely new pump which looks bigger and is more capable.

    No, it can't be, the APD II has a MCP35X.

    The pump in this AIO LCS is not stronger than a MCP35X.

    I was a bit disappointed by the temps for just the cpu. Could certainly benefit from a 140 rad, but they'd have to design one. Short of airplex no one sells a 140 with the res built in.

    The block is the same, but the pump is not. The pump has a 3x higher lifespan they mentioned in the video. It can not be that much heavier though, could it?
