Conclusion

 

Swiftech have put together one of the best GPU coolers I have ever seen. This unit is relatively inexpensive with very good cooling results. Designed for the hardcore user this defiantly a must to have.

 

One thing I should point out to those of you who may think that this is a just plug and go operation, you are slightly going to be disappointed. This unit must have a water cooling system to operate. This is how the unit dissipated the heat generated. Also being Peltier based you must make sure that if you are running a loop system (from the CPU then to the GPU cooler) the CPU will already have heated the cooling liquid up, and its heat transfer ability may be somewhat hampered. To combat this you will need special water cooling liquids (that have a higher boiling point than water alone) to allow maximum cooling.

 

Once running you will find out this unit can provide more pros than cons to your system.

 

- Pros

 

Freezing level temperatures

 

Ultra quiet (no fan needed)

 

Superior performance than air cooling

 

- Cons

 

Generates a lot of heat in the cooling liquid
