Experience: 3 Days



Experience: 90 Days


great quality construction
none so far
great universal block but additional cooling needed for memory and power circuts.

Experience: 60 Days


Small form. Flat surface. Great cooling.
Doesn't cool memory or VRM.
Put a couple of these on my 480's, which are KNOWN to get crazy hot. My load temps dropped from 90 degrees, (Yes, 90 degrees) to around 66. I couldn't be happier with the performance. Having them also allowed me to turn down the noisy fans on the GPUS'. I still had to leave them on however, to cool the memory and VRM.

Experience: 2 Days


easy to install. Good performance
Can't attach hose clamps.
I tried to attach the swiftech hose clamps but there isn't enough room for the clamps.

Features [ Edit | History ]

Superior thermal performance compared to "full-cover" solutions

- Because the cooling solution is specific to the GPU module, it is not mechanically dependant of other thermal joints compared to full-cover blocks that must also cool memory and VR's. As a result, the GPU thermal joint is always optimal;

- Same cooling engine as the Apogee™ XT: 0.25mm x 0.25mm micro pin matrix;

Moderate pressure drop  specifications

As can be seen in the performance section, the MCW82 is close to its early predecessor the MCW60 in terms of pressure drop  specifications

Minimum pressure drop  when setup in parallel in SLI or CrossFire configurations
- Hydraulic performance: contrarily to popular belief, setting up 2 restrictive blocks in parallel is a vastly superior solution to setting up in series; in theory (i.e. without acounting for fittings) fluid mechanics show that the pressure drop  of 2 of the same blocks setup in parallel is 1/4th that of a single water-block.  By contrast, the pressure drop  of 2 blocks in series is twice that a single block; it follows that the pressure drop  of 2 blocks in parallel is 1/8th that of 2 blocks in series. In practice though and when accounting for fittings, the pressure drop  of 2 blocks in parallel will fall to approximately 1/4th of 2 blocks setup in series. 
-Thermal performance of water blocks in parallel vs. series was also demonstrated in this white paper.
Easy to setup in SLI or CrossFire All that is needed is a couple of simple T fittings !  High-end connections are also possible as documented in the support section.
Lower cost of ownership

The block is compatible with most reference design graphic cards (as well as many non reference models), thanks to a host of adapter brackets. New bracketry is also updated on an ongoing basis as new graphic cards come out. As a result, it is likely that you will be able to keep your MCW82 next time you upgrade to a new graphics card.
