Hi,

Do the H240 X2 kits come pre-assembled and do they require period draining and refilling?

Also, will you be offering a kit for the new Coffee Lake CPUs? if so, any idea when?

thanks,

I've got the H240 X2 Prestige and it's completely assembled with the tubing, CPU water block and radiator as one complete unit. Just mount into position and use the provided screws / accessories to fix into permanent location. It's not that hard to do.

The coolant is good for 3-years, so if nothing changes in your loop during that time - you're good to go. :)

Can't speak for Swiftech, but Coffee Lake is the same as Skylake/Kabylake in terms of IHS size, pin outs (LGA 1151) and mounting arrangement (back of motherboard support). Will see, but suspect that Swiftech's Apogee XL2 CPU water block will be compatible with Coffeelake CPU.

Instructions for draining liquid from AIO:
• You will need to remove the kit from the case.
• You will need to remove all coolant from the top fill port screw on top of the radiator.
• Then mix the 2 oz coolant with distilled water. It will have to = 503mL to fill up the kit and radiator.
• Check for leaks



CRITICAL: Unplug the power connector to the motherboard! Components (CPU, GPU, etc..) should not be running during the cleaning procedure.

Cleaning procedure

1. Mix (1) one to (2) two table-spoons of Pine-Sol® brand detergent to 1 Gallon of Distilled water; for a more vigorous cleaning you may use only 1/2 gallon if your system is very dirty or severely polluted with algae growth.

2. Cleaning: fill-up the loop, and run it with this mixture for several hours (no less than 3).

3. Rinsing: drain the mixture, then refill the loop with pure distilled water and run the system for no less that 30 min to rinse (you may run it longer if higher concentration of Pine-Sol was used).

4. Final rinse: drain the dirty rinse water, and refill the loop again with distilled water, and run the system again for no less than 20 minutes.

5. Completely drain the final rinse water; your system is now ready to be refilled with coolant.

Recommended Coolant: we recommend using a mix of 10% Hydrx + distilled water (1 bottle Hydrx to ½ Liter distilled water).
