    Trends in waterblock design don't change often. Until recently, it was thought that jet-impingement was the best way to go for achieving the lowest temperature when cooling a processor. Then came along quad-core CPUs, and it became evident that we must look at other ways of cooling these beasts their core surface is very large, so waterblock designers were forced to return to old-school, large surface area waterblocks. The Apogee GT is one of the first blocks that attempts to offer jet-impingement performance from a block relying on a simple array of copper pins can it succeed?

    simply beautiful block and performs like a champ. Love the copper mirror finish on the block as well. This will probably be the next block I get for my cpu :)

    I have this block, and I must say that I am quite pleased with it's performance.

    Good review, D_o_S.
