Product Description & Info
The farthest or highest point; the apex; a
final climactic stage
The Apogee™ HD is Swiftech's new flagship CPU waterblock. Close to 18 months
in the making, it was designed to surpass its predecessor the Apogee™ XT in
all critical areas:
Improved thermal performance with emphasis on Intel® and AMD® latest and
upcoming processors: the HD is Socket LGA2011 (Intel®) and "Bulldozer"
Reduced flow restriction compared to the Apogee XT Rev2.
Innovative features, with the introduction of the multi-port
connectivity: two more outlet ports have been added for dramatic flow
rate improvements in multiple waterblock configurations and when used
with the new
MCRx20 Drive Rev3 radiators
that now also include two additional
inlet ports (3 total); read more about "Flow Parallelization" in the
section below including examples and in-depth explanations.
Improved thermal performance out of the box with the inclusion of high
performance PK1 thermal compound
Cosmetic appeal: the Apogee HD is now available in two colors, Classic
black or Fashionable white to match high-end case offerings from NZXT™,
Silverstone®, Thermaltake and many others.
Reduced cost of ownership.
Improved Performance World's best
thermal performance based on our comparative testing, and 2ºC better than the
Apogee™ XT Rev2. Low To Moderate Flow
Restriction 30% lower flow restriction than the Apogee™ XT Revision 2.
Exclusive Triple Outlet Port Design
Ability to parallelize the flow to the graphics, chipset and/or memory
waterblocks to improve overall loop performance by dramatically increasing
the flow rate where it matters most: in the radiator and CPU waterblock.
This exclusive feature can be easily activated when the block is used in
conjunction with the new
MCRx20 Drive Rev3 radiators
that now also include 3 inlet ports.
Another benefit of such setup is that it is now possible to use reduced
tubing size for the devices installed in parallel without unduly taxing the
pump, resulting in less clutter, and easier tube routing in cramped spaces.
