Swiftech introduces the MCR140-X Drive, a new cooler designed for people who already own an all-in-one CPU cooler and wish to install a secondary liquid cooling system for one or more graphics cards.
The product features a 140mm x 140mm x 25mm radiator with an integrated reservoir and pump. It's available on Swiftech's website for $89.95.
The patent pending MCR140-X Drive 140mm copper and brass radiator includes a built-in windowed illuminated reservoir, and an integrated high pressure pump (MCP30 model).
Applications for this product are multiple:
As a standalone item, the MCR140-X Drive is a perfect DIY solution for users who already own an all-in-one CPU cooler, and simply wish to install a secondary cooling system for one or several liquid cooled graphics cards without tearing down their existing cooling system.
the MCR140-X can also be used as the foundation for a CPU cooling system in space constrained applications by simply adding a CPU waterblock and relevant accessories,
or it can be used as a secondary pump/radiator/reservoir combo in complex systems requiring two pumps in series.
As a DIY item, the MCR140-X ships without fan, coolant, or fittings. The product is compatible out of the box with all G1/4 fittings, so any tubing can be installed at the user's choice.
What you need to build a graphics or CPU cooling system using the MCR140-X Drive as foundation:
A waterblock for your graphics card or your CPU
A 140mm fan
Tubing of your choice
2 pairs of G1/4 fittings for the tubing size that you want to use, with clamps if using barb fittings, or without clamps if using compression fittings
