3 out of 5 eggsleak :(

Pros: Good thing I find out it's started to leak and five more minute my machine would of been a goner. I had a Danger Dan acrylic case so that really help to spot the problem.

Cons: It leaks twice. First time then reinstalled it next day and test it out for 10min and it leak still. So I bought some Teflon tape and wrap a whole bunch of it around the inlet and outlet of the barb and look like it hold well, but I have to keep an eye on it and if it leak... I'm gonna return it :(

Other Thoughts: almost a heart attack.

4 out of 5 eggsOk product

Pros: Bought this to replace my gigantic Gigabyte CPU block from the Gigabyte Galaxy 2 water cooling kit. This Swiftech is much lighter and well design than the Gigabyte block and not to mention very easy installation. 1/2 tube fitting included and it's chrome not plastic.

Cons: Very expensive upgrade for me because I needed to replace that awkward Gigabyte block that's facing 2 different direction. Not many CPU block available from Newegg and not many selection too. They should of have more in stock and bigger selection.

Other Thoughts: It is still pretty expensive and I don't think prices going to drop anytime soon :(

4 out of 5 eggsVery good with some issue

Pros: Very good cooling block. Easy mount (see below).

Cons: The screws could be longer / better material

Other Thoughts: In my case one of the screws gave up (did not want to hook on the backplate anymore). I purchase a second block to replace the defective one and... the same issue : one screw gave up. The block is stable enough with 3 screws, but it's a disappointing experience with this block (It would have been a 5 rating if not for the screw issue).

5 out of 5 eggsvery capable

Pros: very good heat transfer
comes with Ceramique
high-flow 1/2" barbs
easy to install

Cons: none that i can think of, other than it looks wierd

Other Thoughts: good CPU water block, keeps my heavily overclocked and overvolted quad-core under 50C.
worth the premium over a typical apogee/storm.

5 out of 5 eggsCanT go Wrong with this One

Pros: fits ANY 775 socket motherboards.proformance really good & looks awsome. i couldnt use other blocks the Koolance CPU-330 or Swiftech Apogee GT on my asus MAXIMUS EXTREME x38

Cons: should come with something tells you which nozzle is in and out. had to look online for that one. wasnt at swiftech website. had to google it. lol

Other Thoughts: Apogee GTX to provide a racing feel, not dissimilar to that of Edelbrock's famous V8 valve covers.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Cooling

Pros: Easy to install and works great.

Cons: none for me

Other Thoughts: I used this for my first shot at water cooling. Works like a charm. Best advice I can give anyone if you are doing water cooling for the first time is take if very slow. Don't rush anything!! I went very slow and thought everything out and still had to drain my system once to make a fix.

5 out of 5 eggsEasiest Install Yet

Pros: Unbelievably simple to install. Great temps. Mobo backplate included. Bowed design great for newer processors with integrated heatspreader. Works as advertised.

Cons: Package doesn't include 3/8" fittings.

Other Thoughts: Very easy to install and it looks rather nice on the board. Using this in a crazy-expensive dual-loop setup with all the latest hardware and I'm very satisfied with performance and aesthetics.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: EveryThing

Cons: The top of the Block is made of Alumimun that is plated and also has a coating to prevent corrosion from mixing metals. I don't like it so i bought a copper top to go on the base plate and all was good

Other Thoughts: CoolMax said his Block is bowed and he sanded it down coolmax you should not have done that as it has been shown that haveign a bowed block can inprove your temps.

Anyhow i put this Apogee on the same CPU as my storm was on and my temps droped 11c just due to the block! I run it on my E6850 now and I havnet seen a temp over 28c for a month. that heavy gamming and Overclocking too! At 3.5ghz i was 28c load and 21c Idle! At stock(3ghz I see 25c is my loan temps! What a great block! I still cant beleave how good it works!

Cons: NONE!!!

Other Thoughts: Great block but I also have an extream H2O system with, a Magic cool 9x120mm Rad and a 950gph pump! But still great block and great temps!
