For those of you considering moving to a watercooled setup in the near future; if you're looking at the Swiftech range of waterblocks , then this article is for you. First and foremost, it appears that the Swiftech Storm G4 is now a discontinued item. So if you're specifically looking for the G4, you'd better nab it before stocks run out.

Complimenting the existing Apogee Standard (which will remain in production for the forseeable future), will be two new waterblocks: The Apogee GT and the Apogee GTX.

Apogee GT - The Apogee GT production is progressing more or less on schedule. To be on the safe side however, Swiftech have made the decision to postpone the public release of the new Apogee GT to January 15 instead of January 1st as originally planned.

Apogee GTX - A luxury version of the Apogee GT, featuring a Chrome plated Aluminum housing. This product is expected to be released also mid January. Price point is undefined, at the moment.

There has also been some interesting developments from Swiftech with regards to the Nvidia GeForce 8800 series cards. Swiftech have launched production of the MC21 heatsink, a small aluminum heatsink specifically adapted for voltage regulators on the GeForce 8800 series cards. They are expected to be released within a month. Swiftech are also working on an all-new cooling solution for the 8800 series card. Do not expect production until sometime in the first quarter of 2007.

There will also be a blister-pack retail version of the MCW60-R GPU block, which will include the G80 adapter plate, but no Ramsinks. This can be expected for release within the next two weeks.

Hi Guys,

Do any of you have any thoughts or input on a Christmas message we can send out from us all to the members?

Something like:


As Christmas is fast approaching we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping to make Overclock3D the friendly, informative website it is today.

We wish you a safe and pleasant Christmas followed by a happy New Year and look forward to seeing you in 2007 (and of course before that if you are addicted to the net!)

Best Regards,
Jim (XMS), Matt(Kempez), Dave(Dav0s), Matthew(PV5150) & Matt(FragTek)

Dear valued member

As Christmas is fast approaching we'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping to make Overclock3D the friendly, informative website it is today. It is without a doubt that the success of Overclock3d as a community, is reliant on the selfless sharing of knowledge of like minded enthusiasts, such as yourselves.

It doesn’t seem that long ago, that Overclock3d was a fledgling forum amongst some very large and reputable company. We would like to think that over the course of this year, we have grown in leaps and bounds; a sentiment that is reflected in the sheer number of visitors that we have frequenting our site.

We would also like to thank the business’ that have sponsored and supported us throughout the year. The boys from SpecialTech have assisted us greatly in getting you the latest gear at an extremely competitive price, and providing exemplary customer service to boot. To all the manufacturers who have also supplied review material, our thanks goes out to you all as well. The Overclock3d community looks forward to continuing this relationship into the new year.

So, in closing, we would like to wish you well as the festive season draws near, and that your time spent with friends and family will be remembered for the following year. For those of you who are going away for the Christmas break, please take care and return to us safely…and don’t forget some pics. We also hope that the New Year will provide you with many opportunities and enjoyment. See you all in 2007.

Best wishes and Regards,
Jim (XMS), Matt(Kempez), Dave(Dav0s), Matthew(PV5150) & Matt(FragTek)

First line, second para. Shouldn't it be companies?
