The patent pending MCR Drive™ series of heat exchangers represent yet another
world-first innovation from Swiftech®. For many years, it has been our goal to
integrate and combine several elements of a standard liquid cooling system in
order to save space and reduce cost of ownership while preserving performance
and enhancing functionality
The pump used in this application is the
probably one of the most sold PC pumps in the market today. The heat exchanger
MCR220-QP, also two of the most commonly used radiators in the DIY
enthusiast community because of their exceptional noise/performance and
Features and Benefits
High performance Features
- The dual or triple 120mm radiator form factors provide 2 to 3 times the
heat dissipation capacity afforded by the single 120mm radiators found in
entry level kits.
Superior performance headroom
Substantially reduced operating temperatures
Ability to daisy-chain multiple water-blocks in the loop with reduced
impact on CPU cooling performance
- The high-pressure MCP350 pump allows higher system flow rates than
comparably sized pumps found in entry level kits, allowing users to
daisy-chain multiple water-blocks in the loop.
- Integration of the pump into the radiator reduces the overall system
pressure drop compared to conventional setups.
- The patent pending integrated pump and built-in reservoir of the MCR
Drive™ heat exchanger combine 3 of the 4 typical elements found in
conventional CPU liquid cooling systems.
Easier to integrate in any PC
Safer, more reliable operations (less joints)
- Only the water-block(s) will need to be changed in case of platform
Future-proof concept reduces the cost of ownership over the long term, and
guarantees that the core cooling system can be migrated from one computer
- Extreme users can easily setup a dedicated VGA loop or install a second
unit in series for dual pump dual radiator action!
Tame these hot GPU's in SLI, Quad SLI or CrossFire!
Performance curves of the
radiator and pump are similar to their respective
non-integrated counterparts. However, overall system pressure drop is noticeably
improved compared to a traditional setup due to a substantial reduction in the
length of the flow path, as well as in the number of fittings (2 fittings
instead of 6). An additional performance benefit is the new-found ability to run
the MCP350 pump with 1/2" lines.

The MCR Drive™ units are sold in two configurations:
Without a pump, to allow
owners of MCP350, and MCP355 to install their existing pump to the radiator.
With the Apogee™ Drive pump,
which is an MCP350 pump
with a "footless" body.
