Swiftech H220 AIO Review

Swiftech push the boundries of what we are used to with an AIO cooler. Can the Swiftech really compete with the H100i?

I look performance on 4.6GHz and for me that is enough.
Same I am disappointed...
Good old H100 if you want cooler for one platform. Because this is throwing money for custom loop. For that money you can buy almost, D5 Koolance PMP-450 and XSPC Dual Bay Res for D5 Vario...If you want GPU and CPU under water this is minimum... For proper water cooling...







Now situation is clear, Hydro series forever or real loop, no kits, combinations,... carefull choose parts, pay twice like H220 but you have system for every platform.

tbh i think the h100i looks better and now we seen the performance of this its a no brainer..

if i had the cash and a case that i didnt have to mod to fit one of these i would choose the h100i over the swiftech on pure looks alone + price/performance i.e bang for buck..

Well that was... somewhat anticlimactic.
Agree about the need for a competitive market. The slow-down of Intel's roadmap since AMD's CPUs have gone down the crapper is really starting to annoy me (seriously, where are my unlocked 8 core CPUs for fuck's sake?). Makes me long for the olden days of Athlons.

I have one very minor suggestion/request for the video review which came to my attention after watching this and the Corsair/NZXT combo vid, and depending on the program used to create the graphs might be feasible or not.
In the graphs section of the vid, the presentation nerd in me would consider it awesome if the coolers/graph bars being currently talked about could be somehow highlighted.
So, for example, out of 10 coolers with 3 bars each, the two coolers currently being compared in the voice-over would be highlighted or coloured differently.
To be clear, this really is just me being extremely picky (where have I heard that before ), and since I'm a great proponent of the principle of factor sparsity, I would completely understand if this isn't implemented due to unreasonably high effort for little reward.

I'm still stay with H100.
But I search, read and learn what is good little loop for me for CPU and GPU, I though Swiftech H220, but and than I need money for new 240mm radiator.
That's 100$ cheaper than choosing good parts easy.

Im also pretty disappointed, i was expecting more from this unit performance wise and yes it does look ugly.

H100i all day long, just wish Corsair/Antec etc etc would bring out an all in one GPU cooler to compete with the Arctic Accelero Hybrid Graphics Card Cooler as im sure it could be done better.

Also is there any chance of you doing a review on the Arctic Accelero Hybrid Graphics Card Cooler Tom ?
