    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.
