Swiftech is introducing quite a host of new products during CES this year, but the highlight of the show is the new H220X all in one CPU cooling kit.
Based on the company's patent pending MCR drive radiator technology which integrates the pump into the radiator,
the H220X is the most compact 2x120mm radiator lengthwise on the market. It features Swiftech PWM controlled high power pump, that can drive multiple devices in the loop; the demo machine presented at CES is cooling an Intel 3770 CPU, Asus Maximus V formula chipset and an Nvidia GTX780 graphics card in near silent operations. The radiator features an led backlit reservoir so that users can easily see the coolant level, and the all new Apogee XL waterblock, also with LED backlighting. The system is shipped already pre-filled so casual users don't have to deal with coolant, but it can also be emptied and refilled at will thanks to the integrated reservoir. All fittings are also g1/4 compatible, so enthusiast users can essentially upgrade their kit to their own favorite tubing up to 3/4" in outer diameter. The pump connectors are reliable SATA TYPE. Delivery is expected in march at an MSRP of $149.95.
Two more prototypes of the radiator are also presented, one in a single 140mm form factor, and a second in a 2 x 140mm form factor. ETA is estimated for Q2 of 2014.
Second in the lineup is swiftech's new MCP50X pump: an ultra high pressure PWM controlled mini pump with superior pressure characteristics than the iconic MCP35X. SWiftech demonstrates a comparative pressure test with a mini bench showing the MCP35X with a maximum head pressure of 4.4 M/h20 versus the new MCP50X at 5.2 M/H20, i.e. a 20% increase in head pressure for the later. Both pumps are specified with MTBF exceeding 50,000 hours.
Swiftech wouldn't comment on an MSRP yet, but it is said to be substantially lower than that of the MCP35x, and is also expected to ship end of March.
Third in the line up is the new Apogee XL waterblock. Thermally the block is fine-tuned for Ivy Bridge and Haswell. Hydraulically, the block features a higher flow rate than previous generations of Apogee blocks. On the cosmetic front, Swiftech has done a lot of work to make the block look like the heart of the system, and the Apogee XL features LED backlighting in the shape of a an X with the Swiftech logo at the center.
Fourth in the line up are the Limited edition Komodo line of graphics coolers. One version is shown for nvidida's GTX780 TI, and the other one for AMD's R290X. Both coolers feature large windows showing the coolant, and LED lighting of different colors (white, red, blue and green), that users can easil change by simply replacing a color strip thru a little trap door in the body of the cooler.
Fifth in the line up is Swiftech's Maelstrom V2 5 1/4" bay reservoir, also backlit with nice UV reacting LEDS, and featuring at its heart the new MCP50x pump. It is demonstrated in a monster Cooler Master Stacker case, and the pump is singlehandedly driving coolant thru 4 Triple 120mm radiators, a 6 core Sandy Bridge with the Apogee XL, and 2 Radeons R290X fitted with the new Komodo R9 coolers.
Finally, Swiftech demonstrates the extremely compact QC-NS quick disconnect non spill fittings now shipped in a gorgeous and durable black chrome finish.
