    Swiftech to unveil new H220 all-in-one CPU cooler during CES 2013

    Hello Guys, I have been away from forums for quite some time, being busy to prepare for the big announcement below. Unfortunately, I won't be able to answer many questions for now, being completely buried by last minute details, but I hope that you will find the information of interest

    Press Release, for immediate release

    Swiftech? is proud to announce the imminent release of the H220 CPU cooling kit, a new all-in-one liquid cooling system compatible with all current Intel? and AMD? desktop processors that will ship to consumers already pre-filled for plug-and-play operations. Setting itself apart from similar offerings, the product will also feature full expansion capabilities to include additional cooling devices for graphics and or chipset. The H220 will be unveiled during the Consumer Electronics Show held from January 8th to 11th in Las Vegas, NV and Swiftech? will demonstrate several systems featuring the new cooler capabilities at the Mandalay Bay Hotel Penthouse suites.

    In a related announcement, the company disclosed that they had successfully developed and begun high-volume manufacturing of a new generation of Swiftech-made mini-pumps, specifically designed for the liquid cooling market. The pump combines a compact design, high-reliability (60,000 hours MTBF) and the high head-pressure performance characteristics necessary to drive multiple devices in the same cooling loop. Being PWM controlled, the device can be driven by any motherboard like a regular CPU fan. Thanks to this new pump and to substantial economies of scale, the company claims that their new H220 CPU cooler will offer thermal performance with a low to inaudible acoustic signature rivaling that of the best custom kits, all at the price of an entry level product. In the words of Gabe Rouchon, the company?s Chairman and CTA, ?This thing is ridiculously quiet; if the chassis light wasn?t on, I couldn?t even tell the system was running?.

    Mr Rouchon also stated: ?User convenience and the vast movement of novice builders towards liquid cooling was a critical consideration in the H220 design. It dictated that the kit would be pre-filled and completely plug-and-play. As a result, tuning and operations are as simple as using a regular CPU cooler. But with a 15 year heritage serving the enthusiast community, we also wanted to eliminate some of the limitations of the existing low-cost systems which are unable to accommodate add-on components because (a) they are sealed-up and offer no means to refill the system without voiding the warranty, and (b) the type of pump they use is not adequate to drive sufficient flow to cool more than a CPU. The Swiftech? H220 kit addresses both issues by featuring a reservoir with fill-port built into the radiator so that the system can be easily emptied or refilled by the user at will, and by our new high-pressure pump. It all seems that 15 years of innovation and know-how, together with some of the most extensive R&D we ever conducted have led us to this moment, and we are truly proud to present a solution that finally bridges the gap between full custom and sealed-up liquid cooling kits?.

    The H220 CPU liquid cooling kit is maintenance free for the duration of its 3 year warranty period, and will be offered at a Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price of $139.95

    Wow, the suggested retail price puts it at an amazing value...It's a shame I got some high rpm fans, and this is more tuned for low noise operation.
    I'll wait for some reviews to surface.
    Massive props for doing the aio wc thing properly

    What differences sets it apart from previous kits except prefilledness and price?

    BTW, i wonder if low profile of all apogee drives is that important (it anyway will be waaay lower then that of most coolers), and if it's not worth to turn pump 90deg so that it's output points straight to block base for less pressure drop/more performance?

    I pretty mich spelled it out in the op Churchy; pump is entirely designed by Swiftech (see related announcement here), and manufactured in-house. Swiftech is now officially in the eletric motor manufacturing business, which has long reaching ramifications as you can imagine, since there are many things that use electric motors ;-)

    That's because it is. We use all the same components. Radiator core is same as MCR220-QP with some improvements to enhance compatibility, useability, and safety: reduced size reservoir, reduced height side brackets, for better clearance with MB, external rows slightly enlarged so that mount screws can't puncture tubes, and swivel inlet outlet barbs.

    is there any chance that these will come with a 360mm rad too ? ( fingers crossed )

    that's the idea - novice? plug-and-play - enthusiast? customize it to your liking!

    You can de-cross your fingers already; we have every intention to release a full range these kits in various sizes.

    Interesting, I thought it was going to be a DDC3.1 motor by the shape/size. I'm guessing you won't release any pump performance specs yet, but I'm interested to see that.

    The Corsair H100 specs are really weak per FT they are only:
    H100
    Pump Spec: 12V DC, 0.1A
    Flow Rate: 2L/min
    Head: 112cm H20
    That's a very tiny 1.2W, 1.5PSI .44GPM max flow pump on the H100 where something like a DDC3.1 could produce 3X that much pressure head.

    I really like the AIO + Expandable concept. The lack of expand ability in the sealed AIO kits and really poor pumping power has basically made the block/pump worthless on kits like the H100 for any sort of upgrade path. This alternative should finally bridge that gap for those interested in W/C, but perhaps limited in budget to under $150 and/or afraid to set up a custom loop. Now they can have this as plug and play, add a GPU block later...add...ect. That's really a great idea....nice job

    Hey Martin good to see you here. coming to CES ? Would love to buy you dinner :-)

    Since this is a closed loop system, and not a pump per se, but an integrated pump/waterblock, we are only publishing electrical and speed specs: 6W - 12v - 1000 to 3000 rpm. what I can say is that we designed this pump for equivalent or better Head Pressure than the 35X @ = speed.

    One of these years I will, but I'm not going to make it this time. Looks like a ton of fun though.

    If this pump is equivalent to the 35x, will a standalone version appear soon, replacing the 35x? Also, why integrate pump to waterblock instead of radiator?

    the rads with pump built in are such a pain to mount in some cases..
