Introduction

The HD6900 heatsink is designed to cool surface mount components (memory, and mosfets) on ATI Radeon™ HD 6950 as well as HD 6870 Series reference design graphics cards which Brand Models are listed hereafter. The Heatsink is designed to be installed in conjunction with our MCW60, MCW80 and MCW82 VGA waterblocks and to allow stable overclocks of these mid-range graphic cards while keeping them cool and silent.

The performance advantage of  hybrid cooling which consists in cooling the GPU with a universal waterblock in combination with a heatsink compared to using a full-cover water-block solutions is well known among enthusiast users: improved thermal dissipation at the GPU level thanks to Swiftech's Diamond Pin Matrix and a better TIM joint, and less heat dumped into the liquid cooling loop coming from memory, and power MOSFETS since they remain air cooled. In addition, this combination provides a complete solution that is more economical than full-cover waterblocks because the GPU waterblock can be re-used over time with different VGA cards.
 
The heatsink is a custom Aluminum extrusions, and it is precision CNC machined to allow optimum TIM joints with the hottest components such as the voltage regulator modules, where high performance thermal grease is to be used. Less heat intensive components such as memory receive pre-applied thermal pads, as shown below.

Critical information:
 
The PCB revision numbers noted below represent the deciding factor to go by when selecting your Swiftech product,
rather than the brand and/or model number of the card.

Please carefully inspect your card to locate the PCB revision number. All brands using AMD reference PCB's normally
print this number on the card. It is usually located immediately above the gold PCI contacts (GPU side of the board).
 
Here is an example showing a PCB number 109-C20547 (the -00P at the end can be ignored)
Caution: 1 digit may make the difference between supported or not supported!

exceptional heatsink
Sunset1 (St.Louis) 8/22/2012 4:41 AM
I bought one of these with the gpu block and a second to attempt a crossfirex mod with a single closed loop cooler. I was very impressed with the construction and the heat transfer ability of the heatsink. The time swiftech spent on just the fit chart made my selection very easy not to mention the detail on the heatsink. One look at this and you can tell a lot of r&d time went into making this 6950 heatsink the one to get. Thanks Michelle for helping me order this. Sunset1
