Swiftech has a New Apogee AND a New Site
Certain products have to make massive changes to make it in the news list here, but custom cooling parts are sort of a requirement to cover. It’s a self-imposed rule, but cooling is kind of a big deal to most of us. Custom cooling is best, but sometimes we have to live vicariously through news posts until our 3 tax exemptions kick into high gear next year. Swiftech just announced their Apogee SKF water block and they also overhauled their site.
The blocks are pretty straightforward. While the design elements are fairly similar, you can see some minor aesthetic variations from the SKF Standard ans SKF Prestige. Either way, both blocks look like a great fit for the build and with RGB lighting control, you can match your build scheme pretty easily. The big news seems to be a new 125 micron thick fins on the block, which should have an impact on cooling performance. The other thing worth pointing out is the fact that Swiftech overhauled their site. Do I dare say that it now looks…modern!?! I jest a little, but I can say it’s very refreshing to see the updated look when you first visit the page.
Even if the news is more evolutionary in nature, it’s still some nice things going on from a great cooling company. When I cover the CLC market, it takes a lot to get my attention with how many carbon copies there are. The custom scene is a lot more narrow in it’s selection and when performance is already top of the line, even small improvements are pretty big deals.
