Product Description

ap.o.gee: The farthest or highest point; the apex; a final climactic stage

The Apogee™ XL is Swiftech's new flagship CPU waterblock.  It features: 
  • Fine-tuned thermal performance for the most recent Intel® and AMD® processors
  • Reduced flow restriction
  • Visual enhancements with an LED back-lit front logo plate available with 4 included color plates for blue (as shipped), red, green and clear lighting
A new version is now available: The Apogee XLC with clear polycarbonate body.. shipped with 3 standard colors.

.... and you can even create your own custom shade by coloring the included white plate with a permanent marker as shown in the example below:

Pressure Drop Specification: 
Comparative Temperature Data:
The following graphs reports the data collected from testing performed with actual retail processors under 100% load using CPU Burn. Published results are the best of a minimum of 5 mounts. These results are indicative of our test bench settings and of the tested processors only. Results may vary from one processor to another. Competitive data is provided hereafter for comparative purposes, and is only representative of the specific waterblock samples tested here. Two samples of the same competitive blocks were used for validation purposes.

Note: "Air to Core Temperature Delta" means the difference between the average CPU core temperature and the average air temperature.  This reporting method reflects the true efficiency of the cooling system because it eliminates ambient air temperature variations in the data being compared. Users are cautioned that the above data is provided for reference only, and is not directly comparable with CPU temperature values collected a) from an enclosed chassis and b) without deducting ambient air data.
Test Setup Configuration:
  • Open bench MCR 320 Drive Rev3 with (3) Gentle Typhoon Fans running @ 1850 rpm
  • MCP35X pump running @ 4500 rpm
  • Air temperature as reported by (3) individual thermal probes located at each fan inlet, with air temperature values collected at one second intervals and mathematically averaged over the duration of the test.

Tab 3

The base-plate is precision-machined from C110 copper. Thermal design of the cooling engine is characterized by Swiftech's fin/pin matrix composed of 225 µm (0.009") micro structures;  the matrix has been further refined with variable width cross channels to improve flow rate without affecting thermal efficiency.


Base Plate:  60x60mm
Waterblock Net Weight: 8.4 ounces (238 grams)

"...we observed a notable 1-2°C improvement in temperatures over the previous generation Apogee HD block...if Swiftech is able to constantly improve their liquid cooling components by this amount every generation as technology improves and CPU cooling requirements evolve, they'll remain near the top of competition in their field."

Great waterblock, keeps CPU cool, stays clean, no leaks. Really great color on the CPU also, can change the color slides out without much trouble at all. It's the bomb, that's putting it mildly too, super WB.
