The patent pending H240-X CPU liquid cooling system takes the award winning H220-X extreme thermal performance and low noise characteristics one step further thanks to a larger dual 140mm copper radiator and 140mm fans. It includes the same enthusiast grade components as the H220-X, such as the built-in MCP30 pump, and the Apogee XL waterblock. This product remains entirely focused on low to inaudible operating noise with extreme thermal performance, and it is engineered to appeal to the broadest possible spectrum of performance oriented users:

The H240-X leverages Swiftech's patent pending technology initially developed with the MCR-X20 Drive series of radiators; in this technology, the pump is fully integrated into the radiator instead of being built into the waterblock. Two major improvements were implemented compared to the original MCR-X20 series of radiators:
- thanks to a revised placement of the pump and reservoir, the H240-X radiator is now the most compact dual 140mm heat exchanger on the market, thus facilitating installation of the unit with any dual radiator compatible case.
- the reservoir is now transparent and LED backlit, allowing users to inspect the coolant level while enjoying the inner workings of the pump as can be seen below in a customized system featuring the smaller H220-X that we presented for CES 2014.

Finally, as an immediate benefit of this configuration we were able to use our new extreme performance flagship waterblock the Apogee™ XL which resulted in enhanced thermal performance and flow rate, not to mention superb cosmetic appeal thanks to the XL's multi-color back-lighting capabilities. While only recently released, the Apogee XL has already received two Gold Awards below.
