MCW5002 64T s Swiftech MCW5002 64T For Athlon 64 & Opteron

The MCW5002-64T™ is a fully assembled liquid-cooled
thermoelectric (Peltier) solution, specifically designed for AMD® "K8" class
(socket 754 and 939) microprocessors. This unit is intended for advanced users
in extreme microprocessor cooling applications, such as extreme overclocking.
The product requires appropriate insulation measures to prevent the formation of
condensation in sensitive areas of the motherboard. Whereas Swiftech provides
gaskets, and specific installation instructions for such assembly, utilization
of this device is at the sole risk of the user.

Major features

226Watts 25A at 12V thermoelectric module
1/2" barb fittings, for maximum flow rate
Patent pending Diamond-Pin Matrix© copper base plate for optimal heat transfer,
and turbulent flow:
"Dropped-deck" housing, to increase cooling fluid velocity through the
Diamond-Pin Matrix© area.
Bolts directly onto stock AMD retention frame
Fully gasketed assembly for condensation control

Thermoelectric cooling benefits

Up to 50°C drop in processor operating temperature
Solid state module reliability (50,000 hours MTBF)
More versatile than vapor compression systems: can be used with almost any
chassis with our MCB-120 "Radbox" external radiator mounting system
More economical and easier to implement than vapor compression systems

What can be expected in terms of overclocking ?

The integrated circuit industry rule of thumb states that an IC
will gain an average of 2 to 3% in operating frequency for every 10°C drop in
operating temperature. The chart below is helpful in estimating what the
processor temperature will be after installation of the MCW5002-64T, and then
project the microprocessor frequency gain using this rule of thumb.
