Swiftech H240-X Launched – 280mm Expandable CPU Liquid Cooler
The H240-X is a closed loop CPU liquid cooler by Swiftech. It’s the bigger brother to Swiftech’s successful H220-X unit. The H240-X improves on the H220-X by making use of a larger dual 140mm radiator, an upgrade from the dual 120mm on the H220-X. The cooler makes use of the same MCP30 pump and Apogee XL waterblock however.
CPU Liquid Cooling Now Easier, Better and More Stylish
Thanks to the larger radiator surface, larger 140mm fans can be used for an even quieter operational noise level. Perhaps the most exciting feature of this cooler is the ability to expand the unit by adding more radiators and even a second reservoir to cool more than just the CPU. Making this unit an ideal starting point for users that wish expand their water cooling loop later on to include other components such as GPUs.
According to Swiftech the new unit will appeal to both casual and enthusiast users alike. Thanks to the broad set of features and fantastic performance it offers.
|CASUAL USERS||ENTHUSIAST USERS|
The H240-X features Swiftech’s patent pending implementation initially featured in the MCR-X20 Drive series of radiators. The unique implementation integrates the pump into the radiator instead of the waterblock. Two major improvements were implemented compared to the original MCR-X20 series of radiators:
- The H240-X radiator is now more compact thanks to a revised placement of the pump and reservoir, thus facilitating installation of the unit with any dual radiator compatible case.
- The reservoir is now transparent and LED backlit, allowing users to inspect the coolant level while enjoying the inner workings of the pump as can be seen below in a customized system featuring the smaller H220-X that we presented for CES 2014.
- The unit will retail for an MSRP of $149 just $10 more than the original H220-X.
