works great

Pros: Mounted on a Q9550, subrouted with an MCW60-Rv2 GPU cooler, MCP220 radiator and reservoir pumped by the swiftech 355 pump.. CPU OC'd to 3.8Ghz, 24*C idle/ 39*C highest load. The thing works, and installs very easily.

Cons: Was very simple to install once i figure out which parts i needed to match the hole layout.. installation directions aren't very good though, but its pretty straight forward.

Overall Review: first time building a water cooling kit, and this CPU block was just the right choice at a great price. buy it!

Good Cooler

Pros: I have my core 2 Quad running at 3.28 ghz, and at full load it runs at 28 degrees. Down from the almost 60 before. has lots of surface area on the inside for heat transfer

Cons: Nothing really, good cooler for the money.

Overall Review: i am running with a 3 fan radiator, so my temps are low due to that.

MADE IN CHINA!!

Pros: Cools better than my previous Swiftech Storm with a slower GPH pump even (MCP655, I had a 500gph pondmaster before the MCP, little compares to 500GPH). Nice installation.

Cons: MADE IN CHINA!!
All previous swiftech products were MADE WITH PRIDE IN U.S.A!!

I'll always pay more for US made products! But, this almost feels like it was made for another company and re-packed as a Swiftech product.

Overall Review: Best $40 block you can buy for a quad core or even a dual or single cpu. (My Storm was 85 bucks....)

Good Block, bad experience

Pros: It's a well made block, keep temperatures cool. My comp used to idle around 55, would get as high as 70 sometimes, even with an aftermarket fan and cooler (i blame it on my computer room not being very well ventilated). The high temp shutoff would kick on occasionally while gaming and shut the cpu off. After setting up the water cooling with this block it usually stays around 44 or 45 all the time, never seen it go higher than 54, and then only for a few seconds before it dropped back down, pretty big improvement.

p4 3.2 ghz, 800mhz fsb

Cons: For one, even though it's advertised to fit socket 478, it doesnt unless you order a seperate adapter for it. I'm using a 478 now, but plan on upgrading to a 775 soon, i figured i'd get my water cooling all set up before i do that. I tried calling swiftech, when i realized the hardware for 478 didnt come with it, got some indian on the phone, couldnt understand what she said. I had to go onto swiftech's forums, and another user finally told me what i needed to do. I finally got the right adapter, but they didnt ship any instructions with it, had to figure out how to install it myself, wasnt that hard but definitely annoying they didnt ship the instructions.

Overall Review: Swiftech apparently makes much more advanced water blocks than this now, not sure why newegg doesnt list them. Kinda wish i would of known that...but oh well.

Quality and Reliable

Pros: Got this to replace Thermaltake Bigwater cpu waterblock. Solid construction, good price, keeps my cpu 5-10 celsius cooler than the Thermaltake Waterblock that came with the Bigwater.

Cons: Was skeptical of the plastic connectors but I haven't had any problems or encountered any leaks.

Overall Review: Think twice before getting absolutely anything to do with liquid cooling from Thermaltake. I've had 3 liqiud cooling packages from Thermaltake and have had problems with them all and had to replace the pump and the cpu water block on the bigwater.

Works pretty well

Pros: I like this block. Doesn't leak, easy mounting.

Cools my Q6600 G0 @ 3.5 ghz. Temperature: idle: 35C load never goes above 45C.

Alot of people would recommend its bigger brother, the new GTZ but this is a good bang for the buck.

The GTZ will do better but in my opinion, it is not worth the extra 30+ dollars.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Everybody will have different temperatures because of these things:

1) CPU block
2) tubing size
3) different coolants
4) after market barb fittings
5) size and/or brand of radiator, quality of the radiator also
6) pump
7)ambient temperatures.

Here is my setup:

MCP655 Vario pump
swiftech micro res
1/2" Inner Diameter tubing (1/8" wall thickness)
Hydrx anti corresive additive, (mixed with distilled water)
GT waterblock.

Great Block

Pros: Amazing block, especially for quad cores. NEVER LEAKS!... CHEAP! when i got this it was around $60.

Cons: Newer versions are out. The mounting plate can get in the way of VRM cooling on fancier Motherboards.

Overall Review: I lap my processors to get the best out of the WC cooling kit. It does make a huge difference.
