Swiftech MCW50-T Videocard block - Swiftech MCW50-T Videocard block

ipKonfig looks at the Swiftech MCW50-T Videocard block... Damn, not bad!

The Swiftech MW50-T comes to the table with more than just liquid cooling; it's specially designed for cooling the GPU. The special feature is the pre-installed Peltier. This 80.3 watt Peltier is the key; its quick-connect fittings give it the ability to adapt to almost any type of liquid cooling kit available on the market. ...Most of us at this point would tend to think: "Here's another attempt at better cooling…" But, that's not the case here. As odd as this may seem, the Peltier is quite differently installed compared to what we're used to seeing; the hot side of the Peltier is actually submerged with the coolant inside the water block. What this basically means is: the 'hot' plate of the Peltier 'IS' part of the internal construction of the block. There is no a copper plate that finishes the inside of this unit; the Peltier takes care of this. This is good news, and not often done. Swiftech knows the benefits of using this type of method, and it makes sense. Allowing the liquid to run directly across the 'hot plate' of the Peltier will, simply put, cool more efficiently. But before some of you start in on me: "But Mr. Mikules. That will corrode the porcelain plate on the Peltier unit…" No, I'm afraid not. The porcelain on peltiers are baked just the same as a porcelain coffee cup.
