Swiftech MCW-60 GPU Water Block Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
Those of you who own a Geforce 8800 series or Radeon HD 2900 XT know that cooling these beasts is not easy task. This situation is compounded by the fact that there arent very many VGA coolers that are compatible with these newer cards. Well those of you looking for the optimal VGA cooling solution should read on. Bjorn3D has just posted a review of the Swiftech MCW-60 GPU water block.
Lets see what they had to say:
The temperatures scores were going to be a mismatch and I knew that from that start. But to see just how much better cooling is provided by this waterblock is astonishing. It allowed me to push the GPU further then before and keep the temps nice and cool. Besides the benefit of better cooling is the ease of installation. A good cooler is nice but if it a beast of burden trying to install it then its value diminishes. Gladly, this was not the case as I had no trouble at all installing this block on my card multiple times, testing for proper contact. While it does put more heat into the water loop this is to be expected so you need to make sure your kit can handle the added stress. With its micro-channel design, copper block, and adapter kits for various GPU's this unit raises the bar by which all others are judged.
If youre already involved in water cooling, and have been looking for a top-notch GPU water block, the MCW-60 is most definitely worth a look.
