    Rouchon Industries, Inc. dba Swiftech today announced the release for retail sales of the H2O-x20 Edge “HD” series liquid cooling kits using their new flagship CPU waterblock the Apogee HD and the patent pending MCRx20 Drive (Rev3) series of PC radiators.

    The new kit series announce uncompromised performance, functionality, and simple installation at a reasonable price. “This new generation offers an ease of installation which is very close to that of other all-in-one kits, but it does it without sacrificing performance and functionality: users can take full advantage of the power of liquid cooling i.e. low temperature and low noise while not being restricted to CPU-only cooling as is the case with other all-in-one kits” said Gabriel Rouchon Swiftech’s Chairman & CTA.

    “Of course, top performance and modularity do carry a price premium, mainly because we use such a powerful and sophisticated pump in our system, but thanks to volume manufacturing we can now offer these kits at a substantially lower price compared to initial introduction. The bottom line is this: if you are going to use a dual or a triple 120mm radiator in your system, there is no question in my mind that it should be able to cool CPU, Graphics, and anything else you want to throw at it,” he added. The H2O-x20 Edge HD kits are shipping now to Swiftech dealers worldwide.

    Personally, at that price, I'd rather research and know what I'm doing, then build my own loop. I like knowing I'm using something I've assembled.

    I mean they are nice for an all in one unit and all but you can get kits that will perform the same for about $100 less, it seems to me Swiftech has just subscribed to apples brand name mentality.

    you could Probably come up with something similar for less. Pump inside reservoir for instance. I know them pumps can be a little weak though.

    I would like to see some pump specifications, should be a good one if they say it's gonna be good for some GPU cooling and a few extras.

    I'd expect it would be...costing twice as much.

    Pump is standard MCP355. Costs are pretty fair, IMHO, getting rad, pump, block, fans, tubbing, and probably coolant.

    Block is the newest, the features 3 outlets on the block itself, so you can run parallel tubing from CPU block to ram, VGAs, and the board, while having all three parallel loops terminate into the three ports in the rad.

    It's cool stuff. ;)

    So you don't need to move any tubing if you wish to add a gpu block to the loop, pretty awesome I'd say

    Well, I dunno bout not having to move tubing..you'd still have to drain the loop..but yes, that is exactly it...the block as two additional outlets that are filled with removable caps. You can remove those caps, add a fitting, and tubing, and run the outlets in parrallel to the rad.


    I am so very excited by these kits and the block/rad. I should ask Swifttech for some samples! :laugh:

    That's what I am saying here is an XSPC Rasa 750 kit for $189! That's a kit that looks better and costs nearly $100 less, and I'd wager the performance is the same if not better.

    Personally, i think its a sweet all in one, it says on their site you can add extras too it, it has 2 extra connections on the radiator for such things. Its a good quality setup so i think the price justifies it.

    Pump/rad specs-

    I like it, I don't understand the price as that looks like all single parts you can buy from Swiftech and I'm pretty sure added up it doesn't come close to that price.

    Whats the point in running dual loops off one rad though? Temps aren't going to be any better than running all of that in one loop.

    Is it aimed at first time water cooling people? Must be since as linked above you can buy cheaper if you want to do a little work yourself. These people are in for som fun time with no reservoir to bleed the loop, not that it can't be done but if they expect a ready system...

    When I read "reasonable price" I laughed. Then I saw the 2nd post and laughed again.

    There is a reservoir;) the top portion of the rad is a box to hold extra fluid and allow the system to bleed. With the res being part of the radiator, where most air gets trapped, it is actually very easy to bleed.

    I love the original version I have, can't wait until these new kits hit my doorstep:D

    The difference is, these are HIGHLY upgradable vs say, H100. :toast:

    That's exactly it. To water cool with AIO style coolers you spend near $100 on the H100, and then you have to go and find that CoolIT GPU cooler, and from what I can recall that kit was over $150 per GPU.
