Swiftech H20-220 Apex Ultra, Primary HardwareS
wiftech provides a user manual which covers every detail of product installation. It is one of the very best I've come across. Color illustrations where needed are supplemented with black and white instructions detailing each CPU's Socket requirements.
I found the inventory list to be very helpful, especially given the number of pieces in this kit. The versatility of this kit makes it future proof. You may currently have a Socket-939 system and plan on upgrading to Socket AM2 (940 pin for desktop) all the mounting hardware you need is included.H20-220 Specifications
As a result of the substantial cooling headroom afforded by the combination of our new MCR220-QP
dual 120mm radiator, the APOGEE
water-block, and the MCP655
pump, the APEX Ultra kit will satisfy both extremes of the enthusiast market spectrum:Overclockers in search of the lowest CPU temperatures
Silent computing users in search of the lowest possible operating noise.APOGEE
The H20-220 Apex Ultra kit is built around this single waterblock. It's doubtful this block would compete with the STORM
which uses a mini-jet into copper cup impingement design. The APOGEE is a great block and its extruded pin design is extraordinary as we will investigate in the next Section. MCP655
The MCP655 is the beating heart of this system, with an adjustable flow rate and near silent operation this is a high quality pump, also discussed in the next section. MCR220-QP
The MCR220-QP radiator fan combo is what gives this kit its silent operation and high performance potential. In actuality the adjustability of the pump and the radiator/fan combo allow for a multiple block system, such as adding a GPU water block without overtaxing either component. This is also discussed in the following section.
