Add a gpu block to the loop if you wanted to, I think it's a nice idea

It is, but I'm not sure how far you could go with it. Maybe something like a 660ti and an unoverclocked 3570k. That's pushing it though for that little system. When you take it apart, it really makes the AIO point moot. That was why I was saying their price is kind of pushing it.

Depends on if they AIO it as a premade, or do 9t like their old H2O model
Swiftech H2O-220 Edge - PC Liquid Cooling Systems CPU Cooler VGA Water Block Heatsink Pump Radiator Heat Exchanger Kit

Where you still had to fill it yourself.

Edit

Yup, look like it's a self contained rad/pump/res like the old one.

Yea the one mentioned is a true AIO unit that comes pre-filled and all, but with the ability to add on to it. With the price though, that is almost in custom territory. If you have the will or want later to add a GPU to your loop you better go custom anyways because you will want a bigger rad. I also have my doubts on the pump. They already have a pump/block combo which is a tad weak compared to separate pumps and this one with the AIO is smaller. Makes me wonder if it could actually power a full loop.

Quote:
Mr Rouchon also stated: “User convenience and the vast movement of novice builders towards liquid cooling was a critical consideration in the H220 design. It dictated that the kit would be pre-filled and completely plug-and-play. As a result, tuning and operations are as simple as using a regular CPU cooler. But with a 15 year heritage serving the enthusiast community, we also wanted to eliminate some of the limitations of the existing low-cost systems which are unable to accommodate add-on components because (a) they are sealed-up and offer no means to refill the system without voiding the warranty, and (b) the type of pump they use is not adequate to drive sufficient flow to cool more than a CPU. The Swiftech® H220 kit addresses both issues by featuring a reservoir with fill-port built into the radiator so that the system can be easily emptied or refilled by the user at will, and by our new high-pressure pump. It all seems that 15 years of innovation and know-how, together with some of the most extensive R&D we ever conducted have led us to this moment, and we are truly proud to present a solution that finally bridges the gap between full custom and sealed-up liquid cooling kits”.
Says it in the quote up there on the unit.

Hmm, It has the fill port... but I guess that's to refresh it i guess.

The fill port is for when you drain it to add a GPU block you can refill it
