Swiftech H220X Liquid CPU Cooler Detailed

At CES, DIY liquid cooling expert Swiftech showed off its next-generation CPU cooling kit, the H220X. Although exhibited as fully assembled, the keyword here is "kit." The H220X is a kit containing all the parts that you put together yourself (the block, tubing, and the radiator); and not a pre-fitted cooler like the Asetek fare. A key characteristic of the H220X is its radiator, which fuses in a reservoir and pump, so that's two less components you need to plumb (and four less chances of a leak). What's more, the reservoir comes with a lit window for you to check coolant flow and levels, and a port for you to top up, or replace the coolant. Swiftech is applying this design for radiator+pump+reservoir units in three sizes - dual 120 mm (240 mm x 120 mm), single 140 mm (140 mm x 140 mm), and dual 140 mm (140 mm x 280 mm).

Swiftech Launches a SATA Powered 8-way PWM Splitter

Swiftech announces the release of an 8-Way PWM splitter with SATA connector, the function of this device is to connect up to 8 PWM devices (fans and/or pumps) to a single PWM fan connector on the motherboard, thus enabling speed-control of all connected PWM devices simultaneously. Swiftech recommends users to make use of the "CPU_Fan" connector of the motherboard, because most motherboard manufacturers usually allow a greater range of adjustments on this particular connector. Swiftech states that the SATA connector employed by the device, eliminates many of the problems encountered with the typical Molex connectors found on such devices, however it leaves us guessing what those problems are and which of them are addressed by their SATA solution.

Swiftech Withdraws H220 CPU Liquid Cooling Kit from US Market

Swiftech Launches the Apogee Drive II CPU Water-Block with Integrated Pump

Swiftech today announced the release of the Apogee Drive II, a CPU waterblock featuring an integrated pump. "Like a phoenix rising from its ashes, the Apogee Drive II returns to take its place at the helm of Swiftech's CPU waterblock product line and it includes all the latest and greatest technological advancements that we have to offer today" said Gabriel Rouchon Swiftech's Chairman and CTA.

Derived in general concept from the company's Apogee Drive initially released in 2007, the Apogee Drive II much differs from the original in terms of its execution. The original was conceived as a moderate cost unit, using plastic injection molding for its body, the entry-level MCP350 pump and it came with bare essentials. In contrast, the Apogee Drive II is conceived as a luxury vessel: its uses the PWM controlled MCP35X, Swiftech's most powerful pump to date, a precision CNC machined water-block body that lends itself to easy upgrades for future socket form factors, adjustable inlet and outlet ports, a heatsink to further cool the pump, LED illuminated logo in a choice of 3 colors, braided cables, and the company's now famous retention system. The only concession to cost and waste-cutting measure the company made was to not bundle all the retention systems into one SKU, and to make 3 separate product versions.

EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Launched, Five Models

EVGA kicked off its GeForce GTX 680 lineup with no less than five models. The Into, SC, FTW, Classified, and HydroCopper. Intro is the absolute base model, with fanatic adherence to NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 1006/1056/6000 MHz (core/boost/memory effective) and board design; SC (or SuperClocked) is a factory-overclocked model that has slightly higher clock speeds, and augments the NVIDIA reference design with an EVGA-exclusive backplate. Then there's FTW, which features a custom cooler design by EVGA, with even higher clock speeds than SC. The last air-cooled model is the Classified, which our sources tell us will have "astoundingly" high clock speeds. HydroCopper retains the clock profile of Classified, but replaces the cooling assembly with a Swiftech-built copper water-block. EVGA is yet to reveal the design of Classified, and the clock speeds of the factory-overclocked models. There are other variations, such as EVGA's "Signature" design with SuperClocked clock-profile, FTW with 4 GB memory, etc.

Swiftech Komodo HD 7970 Full-Coverage Water Block Drawings Surface

Swiftech is almost ready with a high-end, full-coverage water block for AMD Radeon HD 7970 graphics card, which its makers are touting as being a "real" full coverage block, as it's not only making contacts with all critical hot components of the card, but also physically covering the entire area of the PCB, including its reverse side, with a backplate (something that's not part of the AMD reference design). The company released CGI drawings of its product to the web.

Called the Komodo HD 7970, the block confines itself to the size of one expansion slot with an included single-slot bracket. The monolithic black design adds a lot to the aesthetics of the card, including its fittings area. The primary material of the block is nickel-plated copper. The portion of the block over the GPU has a 0.25x0.25 Micro Pin matrix, which maximizes heat dissipation to the coolant. Unlike other full-coverage blocks where a portion of the block that doesn't have flowing coolant makes contact with the VRM, the Komodo HD 7970 has "active" VRM cooling, where the area over the VRM has its own coolant chamber, and is part of the coolant's primary flow.
