For years folks have known that when you are looking for quality cooling, Swiftech is one of the big names to consider. Of course, their product line comes at a price, but if you can afford their cost, you will be looking at something that is beyond "industry standard".
When it comes to water cooling kits, I have been more than just a little disappointed. I have found that results are generally worse than with a decent air cooler and the concept of a quiet cooling solution can be a pipe dream. Most kits are comprised of a single unit with minimal water content and a substandard pump so we'll be looking hard at these areas during our inspection of this cooling system.
Introducing the Swiftech H20-8600 Water Cooling Kit. It claims to be an all-inclusive water cooling setup requiring no case modifications so we'll put that theory to the test. It is not designed for the computer novice as you'll be needing to disassemble the entire system to make the installation complete, but even an intermediate level enthusiast should have little trouble getting everything up and running properly.
So if you've been considering a water cooling setup for your own enthusiast rig, we'll give you some information crucial to making an informed buying decision. Water isn't cheap as a rule so we'll let you know firsthand what you can expect from the Swiftech name. We're used to seeing good things, but we're not going to let past reputation speak for current performance!
