If you have ever pondered water cooling a computer, after a bit of shopping around I'm sure you will have seen the Swiftech brand in all aspects of your shopping list. When I got my start in water cooling, the Swiftech pumps came highly recommended; I just wish I had been directed to their radiators a little sooner than I had. When I started out, I had to use very high CFM fans on radiators that worked, but had a high FPI count, and really impeded the air flow through the radiators; hence the need for the loud, high CFM producing fans. If you read my review of the Danger Den GTX 470 block, I grabbed a Swiftech radiator for testing those and I was very pleased with the amount of heat that radiator is able to remove from the water, and I only needed 60 CFM fans to get those results. With that build came hours and hours of prep and set up time. Accounting for all of the barb, angled fitting, and multiple parts to connect to can drag the build out, and almost drive you insane looking for the cleanest, yet still attractive layout.
This is where Swiftech jumps into the game. The idea behind this new kit we are going to be reviewing is to offer great performance with the use of high quality components. In stark contrast to the build I made for the Danger Den review, this kit takes into account the frustration and time caused as I described above, and brings a simple, yet ingenious solution to allow those less skilled, as well as those of us who have built a few loops, a much better concept in plumbing, routing, and cleanliness of the finished installation. Taking the basic components of a CPU water loop, Swiftech took the radiator and added the pump and reservoir directly into the design of the MCR320. This allows for less fittings, less tubing/routing, and best of all, less leak points.
With the release of the H2O-320 Edge Series Liquid Cooling Kit, Swiftech delivers an easy to use, ready to go kit with all the bells and whistles. This kit overlooks nothing! Wiring, plumbing, components, it's all covered, even some smaller aspects you may have not even thought of when you go to assemble a list of components. That is at least until the kit arrives and you realize halfway through a build you need more parts. That isn't going to happen here! Let's get a look at what's included in this kit and get to testing. I am very eager to see what sort of performance the H2O-320 Edge Series kit can produce.
