Who ever dreamed that high performance water-cooling would one day become simple? We did.

When we designed the patent pending Apogee™ Drive, we invented a way of combining two of our existing components: the Apogee water-block and the MCP350 pump. But why stop there? It occurred to us that by also combining the radiator and reservoir, we could further simplify the traditional four-component loop into a revolutionary two-component, high performance Liquid Cooling System that would be incredibly easy to install. So we added a reservoir to the existing Quiet Power MCR120 radiator, and Voilà! Now we can proudly say:

"Watercooling has never been this easy!"

Features & benefits

High Cooling Power and Quiet Operations
  • High flow system: high power pump, reduced flow path, low pressure drop, 81 CFM fan (@12 volts).
  • Quiet pump, 12 to 7 volt fan adapter for low noise (26 dBA) operations.
  • Optimized radiator for high heat dissipation @ low noise.
Incredibly simple to install
  • Only two components (8 screws) to install
High Reliability and Low Maintenance
  • 50,000 hours MTBF pump.
  • Low porosity laboratory grade Norprene® tubing.
  • Sleeved tubing with anti-kinking Smartcoils.
  • Up to 5 years without refills.
  • Capable of handling the latest desktop processors from Intel® & AMD® .
  • Ample capacity for additional cooling of graphics cards and chipset.
  • Installs inside of most cases featuring a rear 120mm fan. Please check the radiator dimensions to ensure full compatibility with your particular case.
  • The Optional Universal Radiator Housing MCB-120 "Radbox" expands the kit compatibility for external radiator installation to almost any chassis and can also significantly improve CPU temperature.
Superior Value
  • The reduced number of components translates into superior value compared to anything currently available on the market: the bottom line is that you get more cooling power for less money!

..and did we forget to mention "Incredibly Easy to install"?


Overclocking and system configuration vs. Noise level

Make no mistake! the H20-120 Compact is not just any entry-level weakling barely capable of exceeding good air-cooling performance. In fact, we are presenting below two new tools to evaluate the kit capabilities:

  • the "O/C Meter", a chart summarizing the H20-120 Compact capabilities based on system configuration and intended usage, and
  • the CPU temperature calculator, a utility designed to predict CPU temperature under load depending on voltage and frequency.

A typical installation. Can we say "simple" ?
This example shows a CPU & Graphics cooling configuration as well as how to use the "Radbox" for an external radiator installation when there is no means to attach it inside of the chassis.


Add-on components

When you add an element to your loop for graphics or chipset cooling for example, we recommend using our sleeved Norprene tubing.

If your case doesn't feature a rear 120mm fan to attach our radiator, it is still possible to use the kit. Simply procure the MCB-120 "Radbox" Universal radiator mount housing and install the radiator to the back of your case. It might even get you better temps!

You can easily add water-cooling for your graphics card(s), using either the Universal MCW60 VGA Waterblock ...
...or using the STEALTH for nVidia's GeForce 8800 series.
You can also cool the chipset by adding either another water-block such as the Universal MCW30...
...or by going air-cooling with the MCX159-CU.
And if you fancy even more cooling power at low noise, you can also add a second radiator, or upgrade to a dual 120, or even a triple!

This is an excellent kit to get for cooling your CPU. Performed better than my Zalman 9700LED. Q6600 overclocked to 3.2Ghz is idle at 30C and 40C on load. The Zalman was minimum 10C higher on both idle and load. Ambient temps around 22C. A few modifications though to get those temps - I bought 2 Scythe Ultra Kaze 3000rpm fans and sandwiched the rad using push/pull, mounted the rad outside of the case where the exhaust fan would blow but my Kazes were configured to blow into the case, bought longer tubing, and left my side panel open because the Kaze was blocking my side panel, and I used OCZ Freeze compound instead of Swiftech's. Great service from DirectCanada, as usual.
