Swiftech Apogee XT rev2 hits our CPU block testbed and impresses. Great mounting system, great performance, and a nifty configurable inlet position.

The Aqua Computer cuplex kryos HF hits our testbed and puts up some great numbers but overall is held back by its mounting system.

Today we review the EK Supreme HF Full-Nickel rev2 and rev3. Rev2 is the old variety that included multiple injection plates and MX-2 whereas rev3 includes MX-4, no extra injection plates, and EK’s new Easy Mount system.

Our new CPU Block Testbed gets put to use as we review the new Koolance CPU-370 against the CPU-360 rev1.1 and the Enzotech Stealth.

Koolance starts off the 2011 CPU Block Comparison with a bang, introducing the CPU-370. Despite its similar looks to the CPU-360, it’s been overhauled internally and promises more performance. This is a preview of the changes it brings, how they affect performance, and how to get even more out of it.

AquaComputer storms back into the high-end CPU block market with the Kryos XT, a micropin block with tremendous performance, aggressive looks, and a new mounting system.

Koolance debuts their newest flagship waterblock pairing a stunning all-metal design with a high-performance, low-restriction, microchannel base.

The EK Supreme HF is the newest offering from EK. While it only has minor internal and external visual differences compared to EK Supreme, it’s actually an all-new block and promises to perform radically differently.
