While my roots in the water-cooling scene might not stretch back far enough to watch cases being hurtled from the top of a Signal Hill office, I have been around to tell you that old trends die hard. On the test bench today is a trio of water blocks, all themed around Swiftech's recent claim to fame, the Apogee. Based around a heavily refined technology carried forward from the days of the MCW5000 blocks, as well as brand new injection molding ideals, we're greeted with a group of blocks that are not only stylish and inexpensive, but also exude that air of quality and elegance that only the high and goods can put off. Moreover, it represents the first time since the aforementioned line that users could drop a trio of blocks into their systems and have them all fit and flow together so smoothly and sexily, that there's no denial of what was meant to be. With that in mind, it's time to get wet - cracking open the boxes, opening up the blocks and finally slamming some chilly liquid through swanky blocks overtop of sweltering chips. Are you ready? I know I am.
