Some news just can’t be covered because the real-life schedule won’t allow it. Other news is so important that it just gets delayed for a while. Swiftech ended up in the delayed boat not because I wanted them to, but because life just caught up with me for the last few weeks. On the flip side, they have some great looking blocks coming down the pipes for all of the AMD releases. Check out the full PRs for AM4 and Vega and stay posted for more news and reviews!

Swiftech Introduces New Apogee SKF-TR4 Heirloom Series

PICO RIVERA, CA, August 31, 2017 – Rouchon Industries Inc., dba Swiftech® (OTC Pink Current: RCHN), today announced the release of their Apogee SKF-TR4 Heirloom Series. Swiftech is proud to announce that they’ve just finished a Threadripper customized Apogee SKF that features a larger cooling engine (with 30% more surface area) that is optimized for the multi-dies design of the new Ryzen Threadripper CPU’s. With a larger copper base plate, the entire surface is covered on the HIS.

The Swiftech Apogee™ SKF-TR4 is a highly innovative CPU waterblock featuring a revolutionary cooling engine and customization options that allows users to go beyond their limits. The Apogee SKF-TR4 features an entirely new cooling engine made of 125 micron (< 5 thousandth’s of an inch!) thick slotted fins. This new technology is at the very least one generation ahead of the competition and will be the foundation of Swiftech’s next generation CPU waterblocks.

We are proud to introduce the second season of Swiftech’s “Heirloom Series”. Heirloom Season 2 is featuring the new Apogee SKF ThreadRipper. The SKF-TR4 is only compatible with AMD’s TR4 socket an CPU’s. This second Heirloom Event offers hundreds of different combinations: 5 different tops finishes, 6 unique cover plates, 8 logo colors, and 2 colors for the mounting brackets. There is even an option to custom “engrave” the SKF waterblock with up to 16 characters.
