Swiftech H220 Water Cooler

1 out of 5 eggs Unreliable 08/21/2013

This review is from: Swiftech H220 Water Cooler

Pros: Operates quietly
Excellent cooling (i7 930 4GHz 1.6V @ 47-75C)

Cons: Very poor quality pumps

Other Thoughts: After one month, my first pump began emitting a rattling sound and a high pitched buzz that gradually intensified over a few days. I contacted Swiftech and they promptly replaced it with a refurbished pump. The second pump died abruptly after three months...

My last Swiftech product (an MCW20 chipset cooler) sprung a leak that fried my system but I thought after six years they may have stepped up their game... it seems I was wrong.

VANTEC NexStar NST-350UF Aluminum Alloy 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I love the compact size and the durable materials. I use a laptop as my primary computer and I own three of these. I've shoved them in luggages, backpacks, laptop cases, taken them to LAN parties, on train rides, etc and they still run fine every time I turn them on. I've tried a few other brands/models but this is the best I've found.

Cons: They get pretty hot with extended use. I have them in their stands running vertically and after several hours of continuous use they are uncomfortably hot to the touch.
