Pretty sure it's just for sealed systems. Swiftech still sells the Apogee Drive II on their US .com site. Or rather the pump on block refers specifically to AIO loops

Similar case here: https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews/...tinum_review/4

and https://www.kitguru.net/components/c...oler-review/5/


The CoolIt pump seems to work better. (source: https://www.coolitsystems.com/enthusiast/ lists CORSAIR Hydro Series H115i RGB PLATINUM , H100i RGB PLATINUM )

At that price I'd rather buy Drive X3 or Eisbaer.

I'm sure on HEDT the changes grow with TDP but probably not massively

Asetek's 6th gen solution is the 670LS (240mm with 27mm thickness). There's a 670LT with a 38mm thickness that is impractical for sale due to case compatibility for mass market.


edit: this 6th gen review is relevant

Despite improving the impeller quality significantly, overall performance remains unchanged at best, if not slightly worse.
