Product Description

The MCW60-T is a fully assembled liquid-cooled thermoelectric (Peltier) solution, specifically designed for high-end graphics processor. Operating temperature ranges from ambient to freezing levels, depending on the heat load, and thermal capacity of the liquid cooling system.

The MCW60-T features a 188 Watt built-in thermoelectric module that can be operated from 12 to 19 Volts and yields sufficient cooling power to operate most high-end GPU's from freezing to well below ambient temperature levels.


* Water block housing features an injection molded POM Acetal Copolymer * Submersed face of the waterblock plate is CNC machined from billet copper to form the award winning diamond-pin matrix * Bead-blasted shavings free finish * Base is lapped to 0.0003" (3/10 of 1/1000"), and polished to a near-mirror finish for optimum thermal conductivity


* TEC Module: o Couples: 161 o U Max (V): 19.3 (12 @ 12VDC) o I Max (A): 15 (9.3 @ 12VDC) o DT Max: 60 o Qmax: 188.4 o R (Ohms): 1.08 * Barb Size: 3/8in and 1/2in * Compatibility: o nVIDIA: + GeForce from 6800 Series through 7900 Series o ATI: + Radeon Series including X1900

NOTE: This unit is intended for advanced users and requires appropriate insulation to prevent the formation of condensation in sensitive areas of the graphics card. Whereas Swiftech provides gaskets, and specific installation instructions for such assembly, utilization of this device is at the sole risk of the user.

Please carefully check the dimensions of this product to ensure compatibility with your specific graphics card, especially when using a VGA card with a built in TV tuner such as the "All In Wonder" series. Not compatible with the GeForce 7800 GS AGP version.

The thermoeletric module draws approximately 9.3 A at 12 volts. When connecting the MCW60-T module to an existing power supply, users should verify their power supply current rating for the +12 volts rail. The total amount of current required for system integration will depend on the number of devices already connected to the power supply.

For maximum performance, use of an auxiliary power supply is suggested. The Meanwell S320-12 sold by Swiftech is adequate in terms of power draw, and can also be operated at 14 Volts providing a nice power boost to the TEC module.
