MCR220-QP
MCR220-QP Res
Designed in the USA
One or more Patents Pending

ROHS compliant

Introduction

The MCR220-QP (Quiet Power™) series radiators are extreme-duty liquid-to-air heat exchangers 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.

Two form factor versions are available:

  • The MCR220-QP features threaded hubs, compatible with 1/4" NPSM, BSPP, and G1/4 fitting (1/4" thread to 1/4", 3/8 or 1/2" barbs),
  • The MCR220-QP Res features an integrated reservoir sufficient for years of operations without coolant refills, and threaded hubs compatible with 1/4" NPSM, BSPP, and G1/4 fitting (1/4" thread to 1/4", 3/8 or 1/2" barbs).

Dual and single 120mm versions are also available here (120), here (120-RES) and here (320).

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

1/4" NPSM threaded hubs (BSPP and G1/4 compatible) 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.
Integrated Reservoir for years of service with coolant refills in the MCR220-QP Res version.
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).
ROHS compliant


Performance Graphs

Effective April 2007, all MCR220-QP Radiators receive 1/4" NPSM hubs instead of 3/8" NPT hubs. In addition, a performance improvement is also implemented as described in the curves below. Please click HERE to access the performance curves of the MCR220-QP shipped prior to april 2007.


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 that the heat dissipation performance of the new generation MCR220-QP (identified by the 1/4" NPSM hubs) is approximately 10% better.

Example on how to read the above curve:
In a Swiftech system flowing ~1.0 GPM we observe that with the fans used (*) running at 7v, a 210 Watts load -corresponding to an overclocked/overvolted quad-core Intel processor can be dissipated with a mere 10°C temperature rise of the coolant over ambient air.

 


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.

Pros
Slim profile
Works well with slow fans
Integrated res
Cons
Non standard thread on fill cap
Summary
Very happy with this rad, performance is excellent with my OC'ed dual core/single gpu loop and NF-P12's. The built in res bleeds air from the loop very quickly, and frees up a bit of space internally. My only gripe is with the fill cap. The cap itself is plastic and uses PG11 threading, which makes finding a replacement difficult. A standard G1/4 bung would be much better.

Pros
Performance is quite good. Easy to install and looks good to.
Cons
Fan mounts seem a little close together if you're using a rad box.
Summary
Overall really good rad. It was easy to install, it looks good and the performance seems quite good as well.

Pros
Cheaper than a regular 220-QP and MCRES, simplifies your loop, great for bottom mounting too, fillport acts as drain plug.
Cons
If mounted vertically (upright), you need to keep the barbs at the bottom, can make it tough to run tubing in some cases where holes are pre-drilled at the top.
Summary
This is based on the tried and true 220-QP unit, so performance is very good with low speed fans.

The built-in reservoir is brilliant, no need for a cheap plastic box full of coolant inside the case for those of that like less blingy WC setups.

And as an extra added bonus, it'll fit on the bottom of a CM Stacker 83x case with no mods, thanks to the close-spaced barbs...just remove the mesh from the case, screw two fans through the pre-drilled case holes to the QP-RES (barbs at the back of the case), and you have a nice clean bottom mounted radiator.

Downside is that you sort of lose the reservoir convenience mounting that way, so you'll need an additional T-line or res of some sort. Me, I run a 120-QP-RES in a drive bay, so I fill and bleed from there.

And as an extra extra added bonus that offsets losing the res part, the fillport on the radiator acts as a very nice drain plug if you bottom mount it.

Not difficult to bleed mounted that way either, just tilt the case forward a bit to let trapped air rise to the barbs.

Pros
built in reservoir
Cons
none
Summary
This is an excelent rad if you want to cut back on flow impendance and extra stuff in your case such as a res and tubing going to it.

Its very well built too, nicer than my last rad. Its not as good as some more expencive rads out there, performance-wise but at its price its a good deal.
