swiftech steath 8800 block

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
i was browsing around petras looking for a new gpu block, and came across this. looks like the new Siftech Stealth is out.
Anyone know anything about it performance wise? better or worse than mcw60?

i was originally going to get an EK 8800gts block, but now i might go with this depending on what i can find out

hmmm Swiftech yet again is going with the:
Quote:
The housing is CNC machined out of billet aluminum and receives two plating treatments for a lifetime protection against corrosion: electroless nickel plating (MIL-C-26074E grade B) and Zinc Cobalt plating (ASTM B 840-99 grade 6). A black die is applied after plating strictly for cosmetic appeal.
No thanks!

I'd look at the Swifty 60 over the full coverage blocks...They are not as restrictive and they don't dump all the ram heat in your loop...Check out this review between the Swifty 60 and the DD full coverage...

This seems more like a hybrid though, sort of. Only the GPU is under direct water cooling, and the rest of the card seems to use the aluminum top as sort of a passive heat sink, at least from what it appears. How much would the heat generated by ram, voltage regulators, etc. bleed directly into the coolant? For that matter, if it did bleed over, would the water cooling component help cool the other components slightly better than normal air and not cause a great decrease in cooling capability for the GPU directly, or would that just cause no appreciable benefit for everything?

I saw that too, it probably does perform pretty well(has the same MCW60/apogee copper pin layout), but the top extends out to cover memory, but as mentioned that top is aluminum. I'm also not quite sure why they chose to cool the memory and HSI with the water block, but they left the voltage regs out.

One of the other advantages I like about the MCW60 is the base is just large enough to cover the die under the IHS. This has a similar benefit to bowing a water block by ensuring the greatest pressure and hopefully thinnest TIM is at the die location under the IHS. With the full coverage blocks you have that pressure spread out not only the whole GPU IHS, but also all the memory and other bits.
