   Part #: MCR120-QP-K

Features    [ Edit | History ]



The MCR120-QP (Quiet Power) series radiators are heavy-duty liquid-to-air heat exchanger designed to be used with 120mm class fans, and specifically engineered for high-end liquid cooled Personal Computers.

The Quiet Power technology is the result of months of research and development focused on optimizing thermal performance and audible noise characteristics with low to medium airflow types of fans.

The MCR120 -QP heat exchangers have been engineered to meet today's PC industry highest thermal loads, quality standards, and low noise requirements at competitive prices.

Two form factor versions are available:


  •  The MCR120-QP features threaded hubs, compatible with 1/4" NPSM, BSPP, and G1/4 fitting (1/4" thread to 1/4", 3/8 or

  • The MCR120-QP Res features built-in 3/8" barbs, and an integrated reservoir sufficient for years of operations without coolant refills.

  • New! The MCR120-QP Stackable: using the "classic" body, the upper plenums feature two inlet and outlet ports opposite to each other, thus allowing to stack radiators together. This the perfect upgrade for existing owners of MRC120-QP radiators in search of Extreme performance. Key to the feasibility of this series, we also developped the ultra-short 1/2" barbs that are necessary to link the radiators. Four of these fittings are included with the MCR120-QP-STACK.


The new 1-4"BSPP to 1/2" Barb Short fitting enables the linking of two radiators with a 120mm fan in between


Dual and Triple 120mm versions are also available here (220) and here (320).

Features and Benefits


High Performance

Low noise

The new Quiet Power design yields higher performance than previous MCR120 model, and delivers ample heat dissipation headroom for the most demanding applications

Optimized for 120mm fans with low to medium output (80 CFM and below)

Flat brass tubes and louvered copper fins, with brass plenum chambers and frame construction, for optimum thermal conductivity.

Fin density optimized to reduce air noise

Flat frame surface provides optimum seal to the fans

Built-in plenum chamber


Convenience, Reliability, Quality, Competitive price

  • Single 120mm form factor fits in most modern cases equipped with 120mm fan openings.

  • 1/4" NPSM Threaded hubs are compatible with 1/4" BSPP and G1/4 fittings.

  • Patent-pending Self purging plenum chambers design: when installed upright or on its side, air cannot accumulate in the plenum chambers.

  • Threaded fan and case mounting holes for quick and repeated installations.

  • Slim form factor 6.2 x 5 x 1.3" (158 x 128 x 34mm) reduces bulk.

  • No oxidation over time (compared to aluminum radiators).

  • Beautiful and durable gloss acrylic paint finish.

  • Competitive pricing with same class radiators (single row, 2 pass).

  •   MCR120-QP-STACK version allows 2 or more radiators to be stacked to reach extreme performance levels

  • ROHS compliant

Installation guidelines

The MCR320-QP and MCR320-Res can be installed using Swiftech's MCB120 "Radbox".

Radiator possible orientations:



  • Vertical (inlet/outlet at top) : yes

  • Vertical (upside-down): possible, but not recommended due to accumulation of air over time; we recommend using the MCR120-Res instead

  • On the side: yes

  • Horizontal (either face): yes

In the comparative curves below, the MCR120 "Quiet Power " version shows a lower pressure drop  (an improvement) at all flow rates over the earlier MCR120

Ive been using this item for a while and i got no problem so far
I have nothing to say this item i like it so much that I might buy another one. Its a good price and good quality

Works, looks good, nice size for cramped spaces
None so far, although i'm not using it as a single rad so I don't know how well it performs by itself.
I put this rad in my loop with a Feser 240 and it lowered my gpu temp by 10 C. My loop is Swiftech 655 ->CPU -> MCR120 -> 4870X2 -> Feser 240 -> pump. My temps are AMD 6000+ at 29 Idle and 4870X2 at 32 Idle. On load, both don't go above 40.

120mm and way better than my other one
Its a single one, and doesn't come with 1/4IN Fittings.
I got this to replace my crappy rad that only fit a 90mm fan. What can I say, there's a huge performance difference. My temps went from 35 at idle to 26. I am very happy,(although I had to mount it on the outside of my case) now I can push my overclock way further.

Good compatibility
Arrived damaged (see summary)
Fins bend very easily
Easy to puncture accidentally if you are not careful with the mounting procedure.
The unit NCIX shipped me came with some bent fits (the black ink also scratched off, exposing bare copper). The unit came in a blank box - probably shipped me a refurbished one (although description indicates new). Not impressed.

Small and good performing radiator.
May be too weak to cool a quad core or hot video cards.
I bought this radiator to give a little room to cool more with a loop including a Q6600 at 3.6 GHz, 1 8800GTS 640MB with full cover block at 700/1000 and the northbridge with a EK NB/SB Asus 3 block. It works very well and it's not too restrictive (still more restrictive than a Thermochill but for the price, it's unbeatable).

At this price, it's the best in the category.

Experience: 3 Days
Plastic Barbs
I added this into the loop of my already crazzy water cooling system and it droped my idle temps by 2c and my load temps by 6c. Keep in mind i have a 1000rpm fan on it not that fast at all but dead silent. with a higher RPM fan the results would be alot better. I am also cooling CPU, GPU, RAM, North Bridge and hard drive.

You get what you pay for plus a bit more. If your just cooling 1 water block this will do the trick.

Due away with the plastic barbs, order a pair of G1/4 threaded barbs to go with this.

not to expensive
I bought this hoping to mount it on my rear 120mm case fan internally but my asus p5k prem has a optional chipset/vreg cooler that stands up to high so Im going to drill some holes for the tubes to go directly into the case so the tubes are still inside the case. I got this top add to my water coling loop after my CPU to cool the water down some before it hits my graphics card.

Experience: 3 Weeks

Price. Works well with low CFM fans (quiet fans)
I have H20 on my CPU and GPU and I plan to add chipset and mobo MOSFET cooling in the future. I bought this to attach after my CPU and before the GPU to remove the CPU heat before it reaches the GPU. This little rad is just what I was looking for.
