Fractal Design looks to take another stab at the expandable all-in-one liquid cooler market with the Celsius S36. Offering a 360 mm radiator and all-new features, like a built-in fan hub, it certainly has a lot to offer.

+ It's expandable
+ Great price for 360mm
- Aluminum, requires other parts in loop to be of same metal
? Low flow ?(what is 40l/h into gpm?). ~1gpm is ideal isn't it?
? What is the pump headpressure, since this is expandable?

Man D15 is still good against these AIO. I am really excited for the new EKWB AIO line up later this year though.

On a side note, would you be able to test NZXT Karaken x62 as well as Swiftech 240X2 Prestige?

EKWB Predator 240 still dominates in the field of super-low temps though... probably thanks to the Vardar fans that comes with it. Static pressure from the fans are the important factor here IMO...

Yeah - the mounting system looks like being from Asetek - not sure about the rest

I tried getting other Swiftech units in for review however I was ignored. So it is likely no further units will cross my desk for testing. the 220x2 and 220x2 Prestige are all I have.

Just bt the spec, where would you estimate the 240X2 might land? I heard good things about Swiftech performance, but bad things about their quality control. Do they really leak that often?

Consider the performance gap between the Predator 240 and Prestige 220 X2 then apply that same difference % wise between the Predator 280 and Swiftech 240. The difference between the two is likely to be 1'C on a mainstream platform. On X299 / X399 / AM4 the temp difference might grow to 2'C in favor of the Predator 280. Keep in mind this is under FPU load only.

Generally when looking at all performance graphs the Predator 240 and Prestige 220x2 and standard 220x2 are all within 1-2% of each other.
As such I suspect the Predator 280 and Prestige 240x2 would likely perform similarly if not the same. With the Swiftech likely being somewhat quieter when running at 100% PWM.
