Arctic Liquid Freezer 240

With the enthusiast community growing so rapidly, and more and more people getting into overclocking, it makes since that there has recently been a huge influx of All-in-One (AIO) liquid coolers into the market. Even people who aren’t into overclocking are using AIO coolers, strictly for the aesthetic. With the good looks of an AIO, more often than not, comes good to great performance. There’s also no surprise that Arctic has joined many other companies in having AIO coolers come to market with their branding. As the manufacturer of such great thermal pastes as Arctic Silver-5 and MX-4, it just makes sense that Arctic would also make an all in one cooler as well. However, will their experience in making arguably, some of the best thermal pastes on the market, give them an advantage, or will the Arctic Liquid Freezer 240 be just another AIO cooler on the market providing sub-par cooling? We were able to get our hands on the Liquid Freezer 240 and run it through our suite of tests, let’s see how it did.

Swiftech X320 X2 Prestige

When Swiftech released their original H220/H320 coolers, they sought to differentiate it from other AIO's by allowing it to support additional liquid cooled components such as graphics cards, chipset, and/or additional radiator(s). The H220/H320 proved to be quite popular and soon Swiftech released their successors, the H140-X/H220-X/H240-X. This series expanded on the original idea even further. The newer Apogee XL waterblock was added, the pump was moved to the radiator, and a windowed reservoir was added. Like its predecessor, the newest integration also proved to be quite popular. That brings us to today and the release of Swiftech’s third generation AIO, the Drive-X series.

Swiftech H220 X2

All in one (AIO) liquid CPU cooler have massive gains in popularity since their release. Due to the number of units available, companies have taken it upon themselves to try and create products that are set apart from the field. Swiftech was one such company. When they released their original H220/H320 coolers, they sought to differentiate it from other AIO's by allowing it to support additional liquid cooled components such as graphics cards, chipset, and/or additional radiator(s). The H220/H320 proved to be quite popular and soon Swiftech released their successors, the H140-X/H220-X/H240-X. This series expanded on the original idea even further.

In a market flooded with all in one cpu coolers, it can be over whelming trying to decide what one is right for your system.  There are so many factors in take into consideration.  What brand, length, width, fin density, pump rpm and noise are just some of the factors one must think of when making a decision.  Do you go with an all in one cooler, or go all out with a custom loop? Although a custom loop offers the best performance, putting one together can be intimidating. For this reason, many people steer clear of building custom loops. Is it possible to get the performance of a custom loop, from an all in one? With their 400 watt TDP, EXllusion 240, Lepa may say so. But are all these expandable aio coolers just a fad, or a great way for someone to get into the DYI cooling market?

Swiftech KOMODO R9 Fury ECO

The KOMODO R9 FuryX ECO features the same full PCB coverage design as the rest of the KOMODO series. The water channels have been optimized for optimum flow rate and better thermal performance. A precision CNC machined copper base plate is plated with chrome versus the more commonly used nickel plating. The housing is precision CNC machined out of clear Acrylic. An optional backplate is also available. If all that didn’t sound attractive enough, Swiftech has taken it even a step further and install the thermal pads at the factory to make installation as easy as possible.
