Experience: 2 Days


Cleans up the case, looks amazing, allows customization, far superior cooling
requires a bit of case modding
Definitly worth the money. The CPU block fits both intel 775 and AMD2 chips. The pump is nice and quite and does not take up a lot of case room. The 120 radiator is perfectly fine, just make sure you place it on the outside of your case for better cooling. Also make sure you get non-conductive coolant just in case an accident occurs when primming. What is good about custom kids like this is you can basically let your creativity take over and design some pretty interesting things. Overall, good buy.
Extra note: I also recommend you buy a reservoir, makes things a lot easier.

Features [ Edit | History ]


Our new pre-configured water cooling bundles are meant to provide new water cooling users with a reliable system water cooling solution that uses only standard parts with no proprietary connectors or components.

In configuring these kits, our primary focus is quiet, reliable operation with the best performance possible. Running at full-throttle, the Essentials 120 is no louder than a standard case fan, and can even be undervolted for near-silent operation.


Here's a brief run-down of what's included in the Water Cooling Essentials 120 kit:

Swiftech APOGEE GT CPU Block: The mainstream performance model in Swiftech acclaimed "APOGEE" series of CPU blocks. This CPU block is all copper and will not cause any corrosion in your loop.

Swiftech single 120mm Quiet Power Radiator: The radiator dissipates the heat captured by the water into the air. By eliminating small, noisy fans, and using only 120mm fans on radiators, your system can run much quieter.

D-TEK DB-1 Water Cooling Pump: This is responsible for cycling the water through your CPU block and radiator. The DB-1 is near-silent and rated for 50,000 hours MTBF when most water cooling kits in this price range include pumps with a 20,000 hr MTBF rating.

Yate Loon Sleeve Bearing 120mm fan: With excellent static pressure and quiet operation, Yate Loon fans are the number one choice of water cooling enthusiasts.

Included T-line fill/drain/bleed system: Due to its inexpensive cost and identical performance to a reservoir, the Water Cooling Essentials 150 kit includes a polypropylene "T", which should be installed between the CPU block and the outlet side of the pump for best results.

Clearflex 3/8" ID Tubing: Chosen for easy tubing management and great flow.

Magicool UV Green Zip Ties: Using inexpensive zip ties to secure tubing is an aesthetically appealing and effective way to ensure that no water leaks. Pull tight one zip tie on each barb.

Recommended Upgrades

Swiftech MCB-120 "Radbox": The Radbox is a convenient way to externally mount your radiator anywhere a 120mm fan would mount (assuming enough clearance - please see the product description for the included radiator for dimensions)

Swiftech MCRES-MICRO water cooling reservoir: This small, easy to mount reservoir simplifies filling the water cooling system and bleeding the air bubbles out of the water cooling system. It can be used instead of a T-line

Swiftech MCW30 Chipset Water Block: The MCW30 is an easy way to add chipset cooling to your water cooled system. Please check compatibility with your motherboard before ordering this item

D-TEK Customs FuZion GFX: The FuZion GFX will use your water cooling system to cool the GPU on your graphics card. It is recommended when adding this upgrade that you also add Zalman ZM-RHS1 VGA RAMsinks

Zalman ZM-RHS1 VGA RAM sink 8 pack: When you cool the GPU with water, you may also need additional cooling for your video card memory. This kit includes enough RAMsinks for X1950/7900 series video cards and below. It may be necessary to purchase an additional kit, or fabricate a couple extra heatsinks for an HD2900/8800 series video card.

Swiftech HydrX & Fluid XP+: Due to the all-copper design of our water cooling systems, additives are not necessary, but some additives have additional advantages. HydrX lubricates your pump and gives your water a UV green glow effect under a black light. Fluid XP+ is a non-conductive formula that will not short out your components even if it is spilled.


*Special Note Regarding nvidia 8800 series video cards and ATi HD2900 series video cards*

There are components on these video cards that need to be cooled *besides* the GPU and video RAM. It may be necessary to buy additional MC21 or MC14 heatsinks to cool these other components.

There are also water blocks available that have that advantage of cooling all components on the video card. They are called full coverage blocks. The disadvantage of these blocks is that they tend to be only compatible with a single model or series of video card, and they tend to be a little bit more expensive.
