Features    [ Edit | History ]

MCR-220 "Quiet Power" series Radiator

Designed in the USA
One or more Patents Pending


The MCR220-QP (Quiet Power™) is an extreme-duty liquid-to-air heat exchanger designed to be used with two 120mm 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 MCR220 -QP heat exchangers have been engineered to meet today's PC industry highest thermal loads, quality standards, and low noise requirements at competitive prices.

A single 120mm version of the MCR220-QP is also available here.

Features and Benefits

High Performance
Low noise
Dual 120mm fan form factor doubles the surface area available for convection of the heat into the air compared to single 120mm fan designs. The Quiet Power design yields superior performance compared to competing products in the same class. Optimized for 120mm fans with low to medium air output.
Flat brass tubes and copper louvered 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 Prices
 G1/4 threaded hubs, for maximum compatibility with various tubing installations.
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 design to facilitate installation, and reduce 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).


Performance Graphs


Click picture to zoom in
For reference, the MCR220-QP dual 120mm radiator shows ~50% less pressure drop than the MCR120-QP single fan version.

Click picture to zoom in - Higher is better

In the above curves, we show the heat dissipation performance of the MCR220-QP with our Delta M class 120mm fan running at 12, 7 and 5 Volt. For additional reference, we also show: a high-flow/high noise Delta HE class fan, and a low flow/low noise Papst fan. Estimated (*) noise levels are also indicated.

We can see in these curves that good gains can be made from increasing the flow rates.
In a Swiftech system flowing ~1.5 GPM we observe that with the Delta 1212M fans running at 7v, 200 Watts -corresponding to a typical high-end dual CPU configuration for example, can be dissipated with a mere 10°C temperature rise of the coolant over ambient air, and that this is accomplished at a Noise level of ~30 db(A). We can use the next set of curves below to predict what would happen if we were to add a couple of high-end graphic cards to the system in SLI mode.

Click picture to zoom in - Lower is better

The above curves are very similar to waterblock C/W data and can be interpreted in the same fashion. They will allow users to estimate the temperature rise of the water in the circuit, based on the coolant flow rate.

We can use the curve of the Delta 1212M running at 7 volt to illustrate how to calculate the coolant temperature rise over ambient air. Assuming for example a loop flowing ~1.5 GPM, and a dual CPU heat load of 200 Watts + dual GPU (graphics) of 120 Watts = 320 Watts total, at 7v the C/W of the radiator is 0.05 and the coolant temperature rise above ambient would be 320 Watts x 0.05 = 16°C. This data clearly demonstrates the vast amount of headroom being available with the MCR220-QP heat exchanger.

Experience: 2 Years
Good performance. Safer material (no lead).
I've been using this rad in my custom-built water-cooled gaming rig for a coupe of years and it works well. I was a little off-put by my older rad's lead content, and was relieved to learn that this one is made from safer materials. It's probably for the best that I had a little accident with the old one (involving a drill) that required me to replace it.

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

low profile
good paint job
none yet
It does what it needs to do. This is one of the thinner radiators out there so it's great for when you don't have a lot of space for a thicker rad.

Does a good job
Beware of the screw holes
My friend installed this with 4 fans, and put a couple of holes in the radiator for screwing the screws in too far. Hence both a replacement.

Experience: 24 Days

build to last.
this is useful specially if you want to be water cooled you pc. i use this rad and mount on top of my casing works like a charm...

honestly i wasn't pleased to notice few the housings for screws weren't drilled properly and copper resin inside...

does the job
would be better if it had a stand for it or better hardware to mount it doesn't come with any barbs
I am using this with one 120mm fan and have not overclocked my system yet

if you also get the swiftech resevoir that comes with a nice set of metal brackets that you can use as a stand for this radiator

using this with a GPU and a CPU block and can run the single fan at low speed and if I put my hand on the radiator it doesn't even get warm I don't see why you would need a larger rad than this

I prefered to install the fan with rubber plugs than screws so I very carefully drilled out the holes to take the plugs

if you do this put something hard and thin underneath the screw holes when drilling to protect the radiator

Experience: 1 Years
- good heat dissipation
- great air flow
- price
- fins are very thin
- paint
- no barbs included
I am using this on my E8400 overclocked to 3600mhz and my temps are in 30C.I will buy a second one for video card

Experience: 5 Months
awesome heat dissipation
great build quality
fins on the rad its self are super prone to bending, so be careful.
swiftech always has made great products, well in my books they have. this product is no exception good build quality and awesome heat dissipation.

Experience: 1 Days

Quiet, Nice looking,Keeps my cpu cool
I just got this today and so far it's great. Temps are pretty low on my overclocked E8400. My last was a little noisy with the fans blowing through but this one creates no noise.

So far everything I was looking for.
