Level up the thermal performance and style of your gaming rig with the Swiftech H240 X2 liquid cooling solution. Compatible with all current Intel/AMD processors, this model delivers everything you expect from All-in-One (AiO) water cooling: superior performance to air cooling, ultra low noise, Plug-n-Play, and no to low maintenance, all at reasonable price. Even better, the Swiftech H240 X2 comes with a transparent water block, thus you can see with pleasure the flow of the coolant and how your processor is liquid cooled.
The Swiftech H240 X2 is available in two versions: Standard version with barb fittings and Swiftech Helix fans, or Prestige version using Swiftech Lok Seal black chrome compression fittings and Noiseblocker NB-eLoop fans. Also available are other two radiator sizes, and each radiator size comes in Standard and Prestige version.
Superior Thermal Performance
Thanks to its copper & brass dual 140 mm radiator, high static pressure Helix/Noiseblocker NB-eLoop 140 mm fans, more powerful DC pump than any other AIO on the market, and because it uses the Award winning Apogee XL2 series waterblock, the H240 X2 kit delivers superior thermal performance to any comparably sized system on the market.
See It Work in Action
Thanks to the reservoir and water block made of clear acrylic materials, and the transparent tubing, you can clearly see that your system is liquid cooled. Color dyes of red, blue and green are included, so you can customize your own color experience and give the system the finishing touch of your choice. The addressable RGB LED’s (ALED) lighting is used throughout the system: on the waterblock, reservoir, and radiator accent piece. Addressable LED’s are the latest and greatest in the world of LED lighting, providing control over each individual LED for unparalleled possibilities in terms of lighting effects.
From Virtually Silent to Comfortable Audible Noise Levels
The design objective for all Swiftech products is always to minimize the operating noise while preserving high thermal performance characteristics. At its lowest speed settings, the H240 X2 system is virtually inaudible. At its maximum speed, it remains within comfortable audible noise levels.
With pre-installed fans, and the new Apogee XL2 mounting system, the H240 X2 is probably the easiest AIO liquid cooling kit to install bar none, and is even easier to setup than many high-end air coolers.
The H240 X2 differentiates itself from other AIO's by its ability to be fully customized, and to support additional liquid cooled components such as graphics cards, chipset, and/or additional radiator(s).
From a practical standpoint, this is possible thanks to:
- The presence of a reservoir including a fill-port built into the radiator so that the system can be easily emptied or refilled by the user at will.
- Enthusiast grade 5/8” OD (3/8" ID) clear PVC tubing fastened to swivel fittings with an elegant clamping system that users can easily remove and safely re-install.
- The factory fittings can be replaced by aftermarket G1/4 compatible offerings of the user's choice.
From a thermal performance standpoint, this is made possible by:
- The high thermal capacity of the dual 140 mm copper and brass radiator.
- The powerful high-pressure pump capable of driving sufficient flow to cool multiple devices in the loop.
- The award winning flagship Apogee XL2 series waterblock.
Automatic Speed and Lighting Control Right out of the Box
Speed control of fan and pump are PWM compliant, allowing the H240 X2 to be recognized and controlled by the motherboard depending on CPU temperature just like any standard CPU cooler. The system includes a PWM splitter allowing connection of up to 4 PWM devices (2 to 3 fans depending on model + the pump) which can then be controlled as one by the motherboard.
For lighting control, the PWM splitter also includes 3 more connectors for the all new ALED lighting system, a two-pin connector that can be used for remote control (utilizing the mostly unused reset switch for instance), allowing you to switch between 7 different colors and 3 gradually increasing intensities.
As shipped from the factory and installed as directed, the H240 X2 CPU cooler requires no maintenance during a long periods of normal use. If upgraded by the user, the interval of time between refills will depend on how users implement their customized loop. Both fans and pump are rated for a 60,000 MTBF (Meantime between Failures).
Installation in Any Orientation
The radiator can be installed horizontally or vertically - right side up or upside down in both configurations: in other words, horizontally with the pump/reservoir facing down (top of the case), horizontally with the pump/reservoir facing up (bottom of the case *), vertically with the pump/reservoir at top (back of the case), vertically with the pump/reservoir at bottom (front of the case), or it can also be installed on the side.
Important note: when installed horizontally with the pump/reservoir facing up, the amount of space available for air trap is reduced, therefore necessitating to keep the reservoir always full of coolant, particularly at high pump speed, in order to avoid entrainment of air into the pump. Because of this limitation, the 3 year no-maintenance representation stated above cannot be ascertained in such configuration.
Best Case Compatibility
Thanks to the location of the integrated pump & reservoir, the overall radiator length is in fact the shortest in its class of all AIO's on the market. This will help to fit the H240 X2 in cases where most other AIO's would not.
