The Apogee™ HD is Swiftech's new flagship CPU waterblock. Close to 18 months in the making, it was designed to surpass its predecessor the Apogee™ XT in all critical areas:
|World's best thermal performance based on our comparative testing, and 2ºC better than the Apogee™ XT Rev2.
|Low To Moderate Flow Restriction
|30% lower flow restriction than the Apogee™ XT Revision 2.
|Exclusive Triple Outlet Port Design
|Ability to parallelize the flow to the graphics, chipset and/or memory waterblocks to improve overall loop performance by dramatically increasing the flow rate where it matters most: in the radiator and CPU waterblock. This exclusive feature can be easily activated when the block is used in conjunction with the new MCRx20 Drive Rev3 radiators that now also include 3 inlet ports.
Another benefit of such setup is that it is now possible to use reduced tubing size for the devices installed in parallel without unduly taxing the pump, resulting in less clutter, and easier tube routing in cramped spaces.

|The Apogee™ HD ships with PK1 thermal compound highly rated by enthusiast users and reviewers (and confirmed by in-house testing) for its excellent thermal performance and ease of application.
|More affordable than the Apogee™ XT and other top Performing Blocks on the market (the HD also includes 1/2" fittings and clamps, whereas many of our competitors do not).
