My System Specs

Default Swiftech Introduces it's new waterblock for NVidia GeForce 8 series

Named after the famous Stealth fighter bomber because of its angular shapes and black livery, Swiftech' Stealth is a VGA water-block designed exclusively for nVidia's high-end GeForce™ 8 series graphics cards. At the time of publication, the Stealth is compatible with the 8800 GTS, GTX and Ultra models.
The ultimate GeForce™ cooling performance:
Using the same core cooling technology as the Apogee™ GT and GTX CPU water-blocks which are recognized as the best performing water-blocks on the market, the Stealth unique design approach focuses cooling where it is most needed: at the GPU level; with its extended wings covering the memory modules and NVIO chip, the massive aluminum housing also maintains the lowest possible temperature of these surface mount components; this allows in effect for the most advanced overclocking techniques which are necessary to take core and memory frequencies well beyond factory specifications.

They're asking $109 USD direct from factory which isn't too bad.

  • Internal structure: the CNC machined C110 copper base plate is at the heart of Stealth water-block cooling efficiency. Designed and optimized using Computational Fluid Dynamics, it benefits from the same Diamond Pin Matrix technology used in the Award Winning GT and GTX CPU water-blocks. In fact, we use the Apogee GT/GTX base plates with the Stealth, thus guaranteeing the absolute best performance on the market.

The Stealth utilizes the same Diamond Pin Matrix
cold plate technology as the Apogee™ GT & GTX
  • The housing is CNC machined out of billet aluminum and receives two plating treatments for a lifetime protection against corrosion: electroless nickel plating (MIL-C-26074E grade B) and Zinc Cobalt plating (ASTM B 840-99 grade 6). A black die is applied after plating strictly for cosmetic appeal.
  • The port threads are 1/4" BSPP standard.
  • The housing is supported by a 5 year limited(*) warranty.
  • The Stealth is shipped with 1/4" BSPP to 1/2" barb chrome fittings, and is also fully compatible with Swiftech's or other 1/4" BSPP to 3/8" barb fittings.
  • The spring loaded screws shipped with the Stealth are the same as those used in nVidia's stock aircooled solutions.
