A few years ago, Swiftech offered a barebones water cooling system pre-installed in a computer chassis, but for whatever reason, decided to discontinue offering it to the public. Maybe a lack of sales was to blame, as water cooling was still new to the general public. Regardless, late last year Swiftech decided to get back into the barebones market as the need for higher performance cooling at lower noise levels is quickly becoming more and more popular.
So with that said, today we will be looking at Swiftech's newest offering in the barebones market, the Quiet Power P180. The Quiet Power P180 consists of the very popular Antec P180 chassis that is slightly modified with Swiftech's H20-120 series liquid cooling kit pre-installed, leak tested and ready to go. All that's needed for the end user to do is install the water block and connect the tubing.
First off, let's take a look at what Swiftech has to say about their new entry into the barebones market place. This is taken directly from their website.
"The Quiet Power P180 is a pre-assembled Liquid Cooled barebone specifically engineered for Ultra Quiet operations. We chose Antec's P180 chassis for its outstanding noise reduction features and thermally favorable ergonomics, then fitted it with an improved version of our award winning H20-120 Premium kit."
From looking at the feature set as well as the specifications, the case should provide a cool and quiet operating environment for your system. Let's get on with the review and take a closer look at the P180 to see if it lives up to Swiftech's outstanding reputation.
