    I have one of the still alive and well Swiftech H220 AIO's, not the X model, the original one.

    I actually only bought it not so long ago as a clearance sale, completely new, so its been in use under 2 years by now.


    I want to expand it, in the beginning with a extra 120mm radiator, because I already have the space in my build and a radiator unused (was cleaning out some things today and found a rad in my closet).

    Im thinking that would make my temps even better, so why not.


    Only thing is, what size tubing do this AIO use?

    I mean, the fittings it comes with dont look like any standard size, so I wonder what size I should use to expand the loop with and also, what soft tubing should I use?

    But that seems to be for the 220X model and newer, not sure if that would work on the original?
    Also, dont seem to be in stock any more...

    I might have found out by watching this video here:
    He mentions to use 3/8 by 5/8 fittings in the other end, thats 10/16mm as far as I know?

    So if the original tubing is also that, then this should be pretty easy to do so

    How's your research so far?

    I have the Swiftech Apogeedrive II sitting in a cupboard somewhere - I'm pretty sure the barbs/fittings were standard G1/4", so you could use practically anything. It's a very long time since I owned a H220, so I can't remember - does the pump block have integrated barbs?

    Yes it's using integrated barbs.
    Anyway I have given up on this plan and would like to build a proper loop instead, even made a new thread about that so surprised to see you resurrected this one
