The H20-X20 Edge "HD" series liquid cooling kits:  uncompromised performance, functionality, and simple installation at a reasonable price.
The H20-X20 Edge "HD" series liquid cooling kits represent a true revolution in the world of liquid cooling:  they combine Swiftech's extreme performance features with an ease of installation and a versatility that will allow all users, beginners and hardcore enthusiasts alike to take full advantage of  all the benefits afforded by liquid cooling.
Each kit is composed of only two elements:
  • The patent pending MCR-X20 Drive Rev3 which combines radiator, reservoir, and pump into one unit and is also available for sale separately
  • The all new Apogee™ HD waterblock.
The kits are available in two models, and two versions each:

  • The H20-220 HD Edge with dual 120mm radiator, and either Black or White Apogee™ HD.
  • The H20-320 HD Edge with triple 120mm radiator, and either Black or White Apogee™ HD.


Tab 1

Superior Performance at low noise levels
  • With their copper & brass radiators, most powerful DC pump in its size class on the market, and the new Apogee™ HD waterblock, the H20x20 Edge kits deliver superior performance at low to barely audible noise levels.
Fine-tuning Right Out of the Box
  • No extra fan or pump controller is needed: you can fine-tune your cooling system by simply connecting the pump to the motherboard and controlling it with the PWM function. Fan speed can also be controlled using either the motherboard, or the included fan speed adapters.
  • Modularity and superior performance headroom allow the addition of multiple liquid cooled graphics cards, while still enjoying low temps!
  • Multi-port features: building an advanced high-flow liquid cooling system is now easier than ever!

Ease of Installation, anywhere and for anyone!
  • In terms of installation, the only thing that really differentiates the H20-x20 Edge kit from other all-in-one kits is that you need to attach two hoses, and fill-it up with coolant. This step only takes 5 minutes, and can be performed outside the case: simply use our pre-mixed coolant to fill-up the system.
  •  Let's face it, fitting a large radiator inside a case is not always a simple bolt-on. Swiftech includes several sets of hardware  to ease the task of hanging the radiator in multiple fashions as well as extra accessories to create an external fill-port in the chassis upper panel for easy access to the radiator fill-port.
  • When internal installation is not possible, the MCB-120 "Radbox" can be used to install the radiator at the back of practically any mid-or full tower cases.
  • New to Watercooling? No Problem:  in addition to the comprehensive installation guide, a CD is included with no less than twenty-four 3D models showing fully detailed configurations (free 3D viewer included). You can see see some examples in the support section of this page.
Low Maintenance
  • Check the level once a year for safety, add some coolant every two years or more. Any computer needs at least some dusting once in a while: this will keep it at it's peak performance. So when dusting your fans, adding some coolant is no more complicated or troublesome than opening up a fill-port and pouring some coolant in the built-in reservoir.
  • You will be able to keep the core cooling system (Radiator & Pump) for many years to come even when new CPU form factors appear on the market that necessitate changing your water-block.
  • The H20-X20 Edge kits are backed by Swiftech's 10 years of experience in the field of liquid cooling, and a pump rated for 50,000 hours MTBF, which has a proven track record for its reliability and hundreds's of thousands of units installed in the field over a period of 8  years.
Easy Service
  • There is no possible DIY maintenance with factory-sealed kits. In contrast, all the parts in the H20-X20 Edge HD kits can be easily swapped by the user, thus reducing down-time.
  • With 10 years of experience designing, manufacturing and setting up liquid cooling systems, Swiftech® customer service can assist you in setting up and troubleshooting your system 6 days a week, 12 hours a day; in addition, the product is now backed by a 3 year limited warranty for your peace of mind. 
Reasonable price for a high-end cooling system
  • Thanks to volume manufacturing, we are now in a position to offer the H20-x20 Edge kits at a considerably reduced price compared to earlier itterations or the product.
The H20-x20 liquid cooling kits have been tested and "Fusion Thermo Qualified " by Asus®. Fusion Thermo refers to a new type of VRM heatsink that combines both a copper heat pipe and a watercooling channel, allowing users to choose either air or liquid cooling. This technology is currently featured in the RoG Maximus V Formula motherboard.

Great low temps enterd me into the pro liquid cooling world
Faster220 (USA) 1/20/2013 8:27 PM
I was using the Corsair H100 for Sandy B 2600k then changed to the Ivory bridge I7 3700k and right away I could see it was no match for a highly overclocked Ivory bridge. I bought the 320 version of this kit and boy was there a big differance. My setup with room temp at 72f The highest temp I see during seveere burn in is 82c now and then. All stable and finished Pcmark advanced , 3dmark 11 advnced , 3dmark vantage , Metro benchmark , Kombuster and Passmark. Plus all the burnin tests Asus P8Z77-V PREMIUM I7-3770k @ 4911mhz ram 1950.6mhz thats my everday completely stable speed. Cpu ratio x47, bclk 104.5 set at 1.385 volts Ada64 perf tests show sensors readings up to 1.450 volts even though bios is set to 1.385v Very happy with this product and it helped me jump into the pro liquid cooling world. This was my first real watercooling kit that was expandible. After getting this I was able to gain the info I needed to move on to total custom water cooling . Thanks Swiftech. One thing you need to know is this thing is noisey over 2700rpm. It seems from my experience that the pumps when hooked strait to metal are loud.
Good product, horrible support
Michael (USA) 11/27/2012 8:21 PM
This product ran fine for almost a year. The performance on this kit was great, my 3930k I bought in 2011 stayed below 40C idle, a huge difference from the Corsair H80, which was already good. However, in less than a year from date of purchase, my pump started failing. First the computer would shut down to protect itself, and then I realized the pump was not moving water. I notified Swiftech and was told I'd have to pay for shipment for a replacement. Of course, I said no as that would result in downtime of my system, a lot of downtime. Of course I ensured the coolant was filled, I tried many levels, no worky (i say this because someone might ask). However, I shook the intercooler vigorously to arouse the pump, and it was jumpstarted. However, every time the computer turned off (I turn it off when not in use) I would have to do this... so now I keep it on. Due to this years nice storms, I lost power several times and had to take apart the computer several times just to be able to jumpstart the pump. I told the vendor about this and at first he said he'd swap it. Next day he changed his mind after convincing him. It was then I realized he lost me as a customer. Instead of just replacing my malfunctioning parts, he wanted me to have him look at it for determination... Anyway, great product. Just be aware that sometime down the road... your pump will go out... Gabe, you did all that to save a buck. I've been buying your products since the 90s. Unfortunately for you, I believe that products are just as important as the support behind it. Once you changed your mind, you lost my business (and all the clients I build custom machines for). Response: We never denied the warranty but we certainly tried to investigate the reason for the failure, which is standard procedure. You opted to go a different route, but your warranty replacement remains available.
Outstanding solution.
Greg B (las vegas, NV) 6/11/2012 2:47 PM
I have been Watercooling my computer for 9 years now and have used many products and have a cupboard full of WC kit that did not work or ultimately left me disappointed. I purchased the H20-X20 Edge HD kit to reduce noise on an overclocked Sandybridge computer that I built and it has performed superbly. I have since built a second PC with the H20-220 at the top and an extra 140mm rad cooling an Ivybridge 3770K at 4.4ghz and a pair of overclocked GTX 670's. My aim is for silence and not out and out performance so I have replaced the stock fans with some Scythe Gentle Typhoons running at around 1200rpm's. Swiftech have just released their Helix fan which is similar. Anhow I have created an extremely quiet and efficient loop as the reservoir, pump and rad and combined in to a single unit. Great job Swiftech.
H20 320 Edge Kit Rocks!
Jonathan Toy (Dublin, CA) 5/14/2012 5:19 PM
This is my first watercooling setup. I was very hesitant to get started but Stephen @ Swiftech has been amazing and their Customer Service has been top notch. This kit is paired with my intel 2700k and I am able to keep my system while pushing very high overlocks! Currently my setup is 4.6ghz @ 1.3 vcore and my max temps in prime95 are 64 degrees max. This kit is also cooling my gtx 580 hydrocopper. I would definitely recommend this kit to anyone who is getting started or is looking for something clean and simple for their next rig. The idea of having the pump and res all attached makes for a very very clean look inside the case. Thank you Swiftech for making this process so easy! I am a very happy customer.
