Swiftech was formed way back in 1994, but it wasn't until around 2000–2001 that they really made a name for themselves with the launch of the MC370 heatsink. Fast forward to the present and they are now a leading manufacturer of custom liquid cooling components, kits, and all-in-one coolers. While they are not quite as popular today as they once were, Swiftech still remains an enthusiast favorite because of their solid track record of quality and proven performance.
Today's review will focus on the Swiftech H360 X3 all-in-one liquid cooler. While they can't seem to stick to a naming scheme with each generation being something different, this latest Drive X3 AIO series adopts the standard industry naming conventions. No more H320 this or H220 that; instead, this latest series will adopt the 240 and 360 conventional naming for radiator size, thus making life easier for consumers. With that out of the way, the H360 X3 comes with a host of features, such as RGB ALEDs on the CPU block and fans, Mayhem's tubing and Pastel Nanofluid Coolant, high quality copper and brass radiator and so much more. With so many changes, things tend to sometimes get lost in the shuffle, so before moving on to performance, let's take a closer look at what is in the box.
