|Swiftech unveils the world's first fully integrated pump and radiator, the MCR Drive series of hea|
Long Beach, CA - December 17, Pacific Standard Time - Rouchon Industries, Inc. dba Swiftech today announced the release of the MCR Drive series of heat exchangers, a totally new concept in the world of liquid cooling: the patent pending heat exchangers feature a unique radiator with a built-in pump and a reservoir. The MCR Drive concept constitutes the foundation for a simple, high-performance, yet versatile liquid cooling system where only CPU and/or Graphics waterblocks will need to be added; this provides a future-proof solution where users will only have to swap their waterblock whenever they upgrade to a new form factor.
"Integrated liquid cooling systems are not new, but none exist where the core cooling system combines radiator, pump and reservoir. If we look at competing products, many of the entry level liquid cooling kits which are now available to the public only provide incremental performance improvements compared to high-end heat pipe heatsinks because they only use a single 120mm radiator; they also offer limited compatibility and upgradeability with various CPU form factors, and most feature a hermetically closed loop thus disallowing the addition of graphics or chipset cooling in the loop. With this in mind, we believe that if users or system builders are to make the jump to liquid cooling, they might as well enjoy the full benefits of the added performance headroom afforded by the use of dual, triple or even quad radiators" said Gabriel Rouchon, Swiftech's Chairman and CTA. Mr. Rouchon also added: "The implications of this new invention are fairly far reaching, because there finally is a truly high performance cooling solution that is safe, easy to integrate in a PC, and future proof. This solution solves many of the issues faced not only by consumers, but OEM's and system builders in search for a reliable and effective system-wide cooling system". The MCR Drive series of heat exchangers are available in dual 120mm or triple 120mm form factors. They are also sold with or without a pump; Swiftech's existing MCP350 and MCP355 pumps are fully compatible with the MCR Drive radiators.
