Product information: Apogee Extreme Performance Universal WaterblockThe Apogee waterblock succeeds our award winning MCW6000 series waterblocks with a quantum leap in performance, a universal installation design and competitive pricing. Using Computational Fluid Dynamics analysis, we optimized the structure - the Patent Pending Diamond Pin Matrix of our MCW55 waterblock cold plate to match the thermal and physical characteristics of AMD and Intel latest microprocessors. In particular we took into account the trend for dual core processors which feature larger die sizes thus requiring a different treatment of the heat fluxes. The resulting product achieves new heights in thermal performance with a lower pressure drop than that of the MCW6000 waterblock which was known to be among the least restrictive high performance water-blocks on the market. As a result the Apogee waterblock outperforms our Storm model by a up to 1°C (at 100 Watts thermal load and 1.0 GPM), and further increase its lead in multiprocessor, Multi-VGA applications due to its low restriction characteristics.
