Icon2 Swiftech Apogee GT CPU Water Block

Trends in waterblock design don't change often. Until recently, it was thought that jet-impingement was the best way to go for achieving the lowest temperature when cooling a processor. Then came along quad-core CPUs, and it became evident that we must look at other ways of cooling these beasts their core surface is very large, so waterblock designers were forced to return to old-school, large surface area waterblocks. The Apogee GT is one of the first blocks that attempts to offer jet-impingement performance from a block relying on a simple array of copper pins can it succeed?

*sigh*

The real performance advantage of the Apogee GT(X)'es are with quad core processors. They explain so themselves on the first page, give it a nice theory... and then go ahead and test it on an opteron...

I can tell you though that the performance of the apogee - when applied to a quad core - is indeed superior to the NexXxos XP from Alphacool (the original, not the highflow).
