Swiftech H320 X2 All-In-One Watercooling Kit Review

DSC_7915All-in-one (AIO) water cooling units have brought the performance and silence of water cooling to the masses with the simplicity of installing an air cooler. AIOs offer simple installation without the need to bleed the loop. Simply attach the hardware and power cables and you are all set. Recently, water cooling component manufacturers have upped the ante a bit by offering expandable AIOs. This gives the consumer the option to add in optional components such as an extra radiator or GPU waterblock. Swiftech has been a long time manufacturer of both air and water cooling and at CES 2016 they announced the X2 line of their take on AIO. The H320 X2 is a triple 120mm radiator that features a 109ml clear reservoir and the Apogee XL2 CPU waterblock.

Packaging

The front of the box clearly shows off Swiftech’s new cooler. On the back, there is a nice graphic that shows the dimensions of the unit as well as the technical specifications.

 

Inside, you’ll find the cooler and accessories tucked away inside a compartmentalized foam insert designed to keep the cooler in one piece during shipping.

Aside from the cooler, the parts list includes: installation guide, an Intel CPU backplate (attached to the waterblock), Intel Socket 2011/-v3 screws, AMD water block mount and screws, fan mounting screws, a PWM hub, colored dye vials, and Swiftech’s TIM Mate thermal paste.
