    It's been awhile since something new and interesting was released on the watercooling front. But today watercooling king Swiftech is introducing Apogee GTZ, the company's new flagship water-block for processors. Apogee GTZ outperforms both its Apogee GT and Apogee GTX predecessors, thanks to an entirely new design that pushes and refines both thermal and mechanical specifications to the limits of today's technology. The new Apogee GTZ combines the benefits of direct coolant impingement over the CPU area with an entirely new CNC machined C110 copper base plate design which is primarily characterized by a pin matrix composed of 225 µm (0.009") micro structures. This results in a 20% improvement in thermal resistance compared to the Apogee GTX. In real world, a comparison chart shows that when used to cool an overclocked to 3500MHz C2Q6600 processor with 1.5V, Apogee GTZ beats Apogee GTX with 8'C. By default Apogee GTZ is compatible with LGA775 sockets only, but for $9.95 you can purchase optional hold-down plates for Socket 603/604, 771, Socket 754, 939, 940, F and Socket AM2. The Apogee GTZ water-block sells for $69.95. Find more info here.

    If it's an official manufacturer's statement or a press release than mark it as such. If it's nothing like that then I would be very careful with statements like this (s. quote). As usual that's the common marketing blah and isn't justified by any credible source yet.

    I wish they would have included adapters for all sockets. 10 for an AM2 kit is a bit of a pain in the derrierre
