Any opinions on the Swiftech MCW80?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm looking at buying the Swiftech MCW80 over a full cover block because the way I go through GPUs is too frequent and I rather just pay around $30 for the specific heatsinks like this.

I'm guessing the actual GPU core temps will be similar to a full cover, but how will the VRM/RAM temps look?

Anyone know?

Hi!

VRM/RAM temps will be heavily dependent on the type of fan directed on it and case temp. Think someone over at XS tried it, good results.

With decent airflow I'm sure the RAM and VRMs would be just fine.

AFAIK the MCW80 performs well assuming that passive heatsinks are used for VRM's, and adequate airflow is provided along the PCB.

Alright thanks. I'll be ordering these parts soon. I'll write up a small review once it's up and running

i've also ordered the mcw80 for my 5850. i'll update when installed.
post #8 of 9
Mcw80 is the best core block out there. It dropped my core loads by 40c. Look at the link in my sig for my build. On the full thread it shows my furmark temps and how I built it etc...

I am going to slap two of these on my 480s as they get incredibly hot. I will see if they fit using the ol G80 blocks as many have mentioned.
