Swiftech H220 Compact Drive II Continued
The last image doesn't really show how well that base is polished, so I thought another angle was in order. Here you can see just how reflective the copper is from the fine polish job that Swiftech has taken the time to provide users.
Where most AIO coolers are likely to only give you a foot, most times less, the tubing connecting the head unit to the radiator is 15 inches in length. This will make mounting the radiator somewhere other than the top of the chassis much easier.
As the tubes enter the end of the radiator, here again are swivel fittings. They use the same clamps as the head unit does to install this 3/8" ID, 5/8" OD black tubing. At the suite at CES there were rumours of different colored tube options later on.
You can't see much currently due to the fact that the Helix fans come pre-installed on the radiator so really all you have to do is mount the kit, no fussing around.
Opposite end of the fittings, you have the reservoir. Here is where the extra bit of coolant goes, and where any air will be trapped during use. The fill port is capped as the loop is filled with liquid already, and there is a green sticker denoting that his end passed testing as well.
Unlike many AIO units, Swiftech is using a radiator that uses a 13 FPI count. This allows users to cool the radiator with less air flow since the fan doesn't have to force its way through much smaller gaps - hence why the 55CM Helix fans are a good choice for this kit.
When installing this above the motherboard in a chassis, there is of course the 29mm of radiator to address, but with just the one side sporting fans, the total is now 54mm, and if you want to try it in push/pull configuration, you are now dealing with 79mm in total thickness.
