Experience: 8 Months

Pros

Easy install.
Fits most cards.
Effective cooling.
Cons
Small design that doesn't cover the RAM.
Summary
I've had this on my HD4850 for 8 months now and I have not had a single minute of problems with it. I currently ordered another one to switch over to my XFX HD5750 video cards. Hopefully I have just as much success.

Experience: 2 Months

Pros

Good compatibility
Polished base finish
Cons
Plastic barbs
Mounting hardware
Summary
Good block overall, can't say that I care for the pre-installed mount/backplate though. The backplate screws are very small and feel like they could easily strip out. Some kind of bolt through setup with springs would be much better.

Introduction

The MCW60™ waterblock is a next generation liquid cooling solution for high-end graphics processors (GPU's). It uses the same base plate technology as the award-winning Apogee CPU water-block for enhanced heat dissipation and optimum flow-rate in complete liquid cooling systems.

Companion products selection Guide

Depending on your graphics card model and application such as extreme overclocking, cooling of the surface mount components such as Ram modules and mosfets may be necessary, and companion products to the MCW60 are available in option as follows:

Surface Mount Components Cooling Selection Guide:

MCW60 WITH HD4850
MCW60 and HD4850 + 1 MC8800 SMC kit



The MCW60 is fully compatible with AMD® new 4850 and 4870 series graphics cards. Memory cooling is handled on this 4870 Model by (8) MC14 ramsinks, and Mosfet Cooling is handled by (3) MC21 heatsinks. Below, we are showing the perfect thermal grease imprint that is to be expected with the MCW60 mounting system and lapped copper base.

The MCW60 is compatible with nVidia GeForce GTX280 and GTX260. Installation of the water-block requires an optional mounting kit (part #GT200 shown shown below).

mcw60-gt200

Cooling of the surface mount components, such as memory and power mosfets requires the optional GTX200 heatsink..

The MCW60 G80 adapter plate provides compatibility with nVidia®'s GeForce® 8800GTX, Ultra, and GTS series video cards. Shown here with the optional MC8800 cooling kit on nVidia®'s GeForce® 8800 GTX.


The optional G80 adapter kit is used to replace the standard MCW60 hold-down plate and allows installation with GeForce®™ GTX, ultra and GTS series Video Cards. This adpater is not required for the GT version, as shown below.

The MCW60 in stock configuration is fully compatible with nVidia® 8800GT/GTS (G92), and 9800 GTX series of graphics cards. Optional memory and mosfet cooling is available by using MC14 Ramsinks and MC21 mosfet heatsink, or the new 8800 GT/GTS (G92) or 9800 GTX Mosfet heatsinks.

The MCW60 in stock configuration is fully compatible with ATI®'s 3800 series. Optional memory and mosfet cooling is available by using (8) MC14 Ramsinks, and (4) MC21 mosfet heatsink.

mcw60 and ATI 2900 XT

The MCW60 is shown above with ATI®'s 2900XT. The optional A2900 adapter kit is required for installation with this card. Optional memory and mosfet cooling is also available by using (14) MC14 Ramsinks, and (4) MC21 mosfet heatsinks.

a2900 kit

The optional A2900 adapter kit is used to replace the standard MCW60 hold-down plate and allows installation with ATI® 2900XT video cards as shown above.

VersatilityVGA compatibility: the improved mounting system provides compatibility with most ATI® Radeon® and most high-end nVidia® GeForce® graphics adapters (see compatibility section for details).
Water-cooling system compatibility: The water-block ships with 1/2", 3/8" and 1/4" barbs for universal compatibility with any liquid cooling circuit.
Low water-block profile allows installation with nVidia®'s SLI and ATI®'s CrossFire™ systems.
The NPSM thread used in the MCW60 is BSPP and G 1/4 fittings compatible (see technical note on Fittings Compatibility)

Performance
Model

The thermal performance model focuses extreme cooling where it is in fact the most needed: at the GPU level. This will afford better overclocks, and overall lower system temperature. Efficient and silent memory cooling is handled by using individual Ramsinks.
Water-block Performance The MCW60 waterblock inherits all its thermal and hydraulic characteristics from the Apogee CPU water-block, in particular the Patent Pending Diamond Pin Matrix cold plate, proven for its thermal efficiency with today's high end CPUs.
Memory performance Greater thermal efficiency is obtained thanks to the superior mechanical joint afforded by individual heatsinks compared to monolithic memory cooling solutions.
ReliabilityThe housing is injection molded from POM (Acetal Co-polymer) resulting in complete reliability compared to machined Acrylic tops which tend to crack.
All hydraulic joints (housing to cold-plate and fittings) use o-rings for complete reliability and leak-free operations.
The mounting system includes a strong stiffening back-plate with a soft rubber center pad to prevent the circuit-board from bending .
Cosmetic Appeal In its black and chrome trim, the MCW60 VGA cooler is a perfect match to complement the Apogee CPU cooler, and the MCW30 Chipset cooler.
Lower cost of ownership The injection molded water-block housing results in economies of scale, whereas the individual memory Ramsinks provide significant material savings compared to monolithic solutions. Cost of ownership is thus reduced by up to 50% compared to monolithic solutions, with superior performance where it really counts, and complete freedom in terms of graphics cards upgradeability.

Performance and flow data


Click on picture to enlarge

This graph shows a lower pressure drop  for the MCW60 which will result in better flow rates and overall system performance.


Click on picture to enlarge

The MCW60 shows an improvement of 0.02 to 0.01 °C/W in the range of typical system flow rates (0.5 to 1.5 GPM). This is a 1 to 2°C improvement at 100 Watts.


Click on picture to enlarge

This chart illustrates the minor (0.1 GPM average flow rate reduction) impact of adding one or even two MCW55 VGA coolers to Swiftech's CPU liquid cooling systems. With its lower pressure drop , the MCW60 will have even less impact.



Compatibility and retention mechanism

The MCW60™ is shipped with three separate retention mechanisms composed of spring loaded screws and back plates providing off-the-shelf compatibility with most ATI®® Radeon™ and most nVidia®® GeForce®™ families of products as follows:

1. Pre-assembled retention mechanism using the four holes surrounding the processor:

    • Most high-end nVidia® GeForce™ series from 6800 and above (incl. latest 8800 series). See compatibility list below.
    • ATI® Radeon™ series from X1800 and above (incl. latest 3800 series)
    • COMPATIBILITY LIST nVidia®

2. Retention mechanism for all ATI® Radeon® 7000 to X850, and X1300 to X1600 (*) series using the two alternate mounting holes:

    X1600XT Series Note: Depending on the circuit board maker, some X1600XT are not compatible. See compatibility list

3. Retention mechanism for nVidia® GeForce® 8800 series

3. ATI®'s latest 2900XT graphics card require the optional A2900 retention kit shown below, as well as optional memory cooling. 2 packs of eight MC14 Ramsinks, and 1 pack of four MC21 mosfet heatsinks are needed.

a2900 kit

4. Earlier mid-range GeForce®™ series (6600 and below) utilizing two diagonal mounting holes (3.12" spacing as shown below) require the optional MCW60-FX kit.


The MCW60 FX kit provides compatibility with earlier GeForce® models
