Thanks lowfat. Now I don't know what to do. I have a sister in Toronto who can pick up the Antec 920 for me,or wait for the Swiftech. Which one should I get? I'm looking for "quiet" cooling and I'm not sure which is the better of those two. I have an Antec 920 right now and it's pretty damn quiet,but I've read that the Swiftech is even MORE quiet. Which one? Thanks.

Do you care that Asetek have effectively ripped apart the market for Swiftech in the States? Doesn't factor into your decibel rating? Which one? Hmmm...

I'll give you a hint, buy the Swiftech

You cannot patent the idea of an AIO liquid cooler. You can only patent a specific implementation of the idea of all in one liquid cooling, at least in sane (sane - er ) countries like Canada.

Yah check this out. Antec is getting away from Asetek and has their own design now. The "Cooler" line:
When I saw this I wished I did not buy the 920 a couple of months back.

I'd take Swiftech any day of the week. Twice the radiator size and definitely a better block and pump.

Although that Antec is a very unique.

Gonna be headding home in a few weeks and wondering whats the best out there... cool quiet and RELIABLE is what I'm after....
I do tend to sway towards the Corsair stuff cos of their 5 yr warranty (should cover the life of my new build) but am open to suggestions. The new Antecs do look good though. :)

Why not look into Swiftech's CPU block with integrated pump and a radiator with reservoir or even one of their reservoir with pump and reservoir build in? I heard people with Corsair AIO units leaked and fried all their stuff in the process. Why not go with Swiftech and use a non-conductive fluid?

I decided to stay with my Antec H20 920. Swiftech is not available anywhere,and there is no info on the release of the new Antec coolers. When it comes right down to it,I have no real reason to change my cooler. The 920 I have now is as quiet as anything anywhere,and keeps my CPU as cool as it is.
