The apogee HD CPU Water Block
I figured I better show what else I found in the black box before I allow you to drool on the images of the block and lose track of what is going on here. You get a set of instructions, some PK-1 thermal paste, and a LGA775 and LGA1366 back plate - my kit shipped LGA1155/1156 ready and AMD hardware is shipped separately if needed.
For those who have installed any cooler with thumbscrews, you have what it takes to mount the Apogee HD. All you do is align the correct back plate, add some TIM, then insert the thumbscrews in the block hardware and screw it in until the threads stop.
Here we get our first look at one of two, well now three if you count the limited edition gold version they just released. What separates the two I have is that this one is of course made of white polyacetal copolymer (POM), and the other is black.
With the high contrast of the white POM version it is much easier to see the four ports on the top of this block. While the two with fittings installed are the standard in and out of the block, the other two can be fitted to allow for two more outgoing tubes to deliver to another loop.
I don't remember these on my original kit, but I do like the added touch of the Swiftech logo applied to the side of the fittings.
Each of the four thumbscrews surrounding the block are hollowed out to allow the use of a #2 Phillips head screw driver to make certain the screws are set all the way.
