 Review, Swiftech H202-C watercooler
The construction in detail

The radiator is a multichannel type, black anodized aluminum, and looks to be a great performer for its size. It is so far the slimmest radiator I have ever seen. It should be very easy to fit inside your case, and with some creative thinking, even a miditower. The pump used in this kit is the Eheim 1048. All fittings are quick-connect type, and assembling the kit for the leak test took me roughly 10 minutes.

The waterblock looks fantastic – blue anodized aluminum, copper base and a great finish. It features universal compatibility with all Intel Pentium4, and all AMD socket A motherboards featuring the four installation holes surrounding the processor socket, built-in quick-connect fittings, compatible with soft vinyl tubing. They have also taken care to make it fit inside the "no components" zone of both Intel and AMD platforms.

Furthermore, the internal side of the copper baseplate features an irregular surface in the area directly located under the inlet. This creates a turbulent flow, and thus increases the overall efficiency of the block. The waterblock is also available with a peltier add-on module. This module contains a 226W peltier element, a CNC machined copper coldplate, pre-cut closed cell foam for insulation and a 320W industrial power supply solution.

We did not receive this add-on module, but Swiftech sent some high resolution pictures of the components, and much to my(pleasant) surprise, the powersupply they use is the same as I have been using for more than two years in my sub-zero cooling projects, the MW S-320-12. This powersupply is about the best you can get your hands on, and has a lot of nice features. For example, you can fine tune the voltage so that you find the "sweet spot" on your TEC and the fan is cyclic, thermally controlled.

Another really nice feature with this kit is their pump relay assembly. This relay kicks in and starts the pump when you power up your computer, so you don't have to worry about that either.
