From the Swiftech website:
Swiftech was founded in 1994 by Gabriel Rouchon, and incorporated in 2001 under the legal entity name of Rouchon Industries Inc., dba Swiftech. Its sales skyrocketed in early 2001 following the release of the famed MC370 line of heatsinks. Reviews of the heatsink in the Internet Press propelled Swiftech® into the limelight as the number one source for high-performance heatsinks in the aftermarket computer parts Industry.
Over the course of the last decade, Swiftech has emerged as one of the leading forces driving the high-end thermal management scene in the personal computer industry. Pioneering work, innovation, and an uncompromising dedication to high performance and quality have resulted in award winning products setting standards for others to follow. Swiftech® has consistently demonstrated leadership by thinking outside the box, and remains to this day driven by an intense competitive spirit. As a result, Swiftech® is considered by many as one of the founding fathers of the liquid cooling industry for personal computers. This has been accomplished despite intense pressure from heavyweight industry players with powerful sales and marketing acumen. Swiftech's name is recognized worldwide, and synonymous with Performance, Innovation, Quality and Value.
Formed in 1994, Swiftech has now been around for over two decades. In that span of time, they have evolved into a mainstay company in the PC liquid-cooling industry. They have long been an enthusiast favorite in part due to their high quality radiators, blocks, pumps, and fittings. When it comes to liquid cooling a PC, Swiftech is a name everyone knows.
A leading manufacturer of liquid-cooling components to today's PC enthusiast, which is no fluke, their breakthrough was actually with an air cooler, the MC370. It made them an enthusiast favorite back in 2000-2001. Fast forward to today and the Apogee CPU blocks and Komodo GPU waterblocks have garnered quite the following, while their Helix line of fans prove to be a solid price/performance offering. With such a solid product portfolio and their extensive knowledge of liquid cooling, it's nice to see them apply said knowledge to the realm of all-in-one liquid coolers.
In today's review, I take a look at the Swiftech H220 X2 Prestige, which is their new top-of-the-line AIO. Featuring a 240 mm radiator, solid MCP30 pump, LED illuminated reservoir, and apogee XL2 CPU block, this Swiftech kit is loaded with high-end components. I myself am excited to see how it performs, so let's take a closer look.
