    Default SwifTech MCR Drive radiators unveiled

    http://www.dvhardware.net/article39864.html

    Enters the MCR Drive™ concept: a unique computer radiator with a built-in pump housing and a reservoir. This concept is the foundation for a simple, powerful, yet versatile liquid cooling system where only CPU and/or Graphics waterblocks need to be added. Among many others, one of the great benefits of this solution is to guarantee immediate and future compatibility of the core cooling system with any CPU and/or GPU form factors available on the market.

    Ok, I have H20 flu bug.
    Should I even discuss about this product?

    I'm aware of this new released few days ago....should I, should I?

    Stay away from me or you will catch the flu bug.

    I wish can get a sample to test it but that is another story.
    It's a good design concept for compact setup, user friendly for first timers, less tubing cluster.

    However, it's limited to installing orientation compare to regular rads. It's work best with vertical installation, it's a no no for top of case horizontal installation but it's ok at the bottom of the case because you cannot have the pump's inlet port facing downward, it's ok if it's upward position. Cause pump ejecting water up (opposite gravity) not down. See pic.

    I don't think Swiftech designed this rad for performance improvement but just for convenience setup. Think about this; if you want to WC a GPU(s), most people like to keep GPU loop seperate from the CPU loop. So this combo rad come to handy, all you need is GPU block and less than 3' of tubing to setup the GPU loop. However, you still can use this rad for CPU setup as well, the pump is much better than the pump come with all-in-one kit (the one with CPU block and pump drive).





    BTW, they are not cheap as a whole but they cost the same if you purchase seperate (pump & rad)
    Part # Description Cost
    MSRPMCR220-DRIVE-B Dual 120mm heat exchanger (bare, without pump), Black, including 1/2" & 3/8" fittings, and mounting screws $134.95
    MCR220-DRIVE Dual 120mm heat exchanger with integrated pump, Black, including 1/2" & 3/8" fittings, and mounting screws $196.95
    MCR320-DRIVE-B Triple 120mm heat exchanger (bare, without pump), Black, including 1/2" & 3/8" fittings, and mounting screws $147.95
    MCR320-DRIVE Triple 120mm heat exchanger with integrated pump, Black, including 1/2" & 3/8" fittings, and mounting screws $209.9

    I'm really interested to see how well the 3x120mm version works and if it would be sufficient to cool a highly clocked i7 920 or three GTX 285 cards or 5970 cards?

    Looking at the size of it, I'd have to bet against it, especially if your ambient temp isn't particularly cool.
