    Swiftech MCW6002-64 and MCW50+T Waterblocks

    (Page 1 of 6 )

    Water cooling your computer is a simple way to reduce temperatures and increase overclocking potential. Although water cooling takes considerably more components than a normal air cooled heatsink, the performance can be considerably higher than what current air cooling heatsinks can provide. This review takes a look at the performance of Swiftech waterblocks for your CPU and GPU.

    Another advantage of water cooling is the ability to move heat out of the computer case, reducing internal case temperatures and possibly yield higher clockspeeds. This solution possibly increases the lifespan of components within the system.

    One benefit to water cooling is that the user is able to run a nearly silent system, depending of course on other components in the system. Water cooling allows users to replace stock cooling systems which tend to have very loud fans with waterblocks. Waterblocks are designed to remove the heat from the CPU and transfer it into the water. The heated water is pumped thru the system and eventually gets to a radiator, where heat is dissipated into the air.

    Swiftech has been around since 1994. In the past few years, the company has seen a noticeable increase in popularity; as processors began producing more heat, the need for higher performing heat sinks was needed. Swiftech was already producing the highest performing heatsinks with integrated peltier units to allow users to overclock processors beyond stock limits, while maintaining below ambient temperatures. Swiftech also began producing water cooled systems to further increase the performance of their products, to provide the user with the highest level of performance possible.

    Swiftech packages their products in small boxes.

    Today we have 2 swiftech products to check out. First is Swiftech’s MCW6002-64, a waterblock designed for removing heat over a large surface area such as a processors integrated heatspreader or peltier unit. Second is the Swiftech MCW50+T a thermoelectric cooling unit for graphics cards which allows the user to achieve below ambient temperatures at the graphics processor. Just exactly how much can these units help overclocked systems? Let’s find out.
