Already a year ago I landed by chance on the Swiftech website and had passed on the MC 370 and took the brothers under the microscope it must be, I thought to myself, and was looking for a reseller Germany - unfortunately without success. Sometime in the spring of last year, I inquired of PC cooling, because if he could obtain them, i would be very interested to acquire Selvage - unfortunately without success a renewed request late last year and lo and behold, the answer was Nordic dryly, "have already been ordered, me boy."
The processing is excellent, The contact surface is very smooth and angular, a total of 188 round "polished" aluminum cooling bars are embedded in the floor plate the fan sits magnificently on the cooling rods. It is directly on the base plate with only two fine thread bolts - well done - screwed diagonally into the base a total of four threaded holes are available but not required if some one is a thread stripped to appear so, he has two other mounting options available substitute.
Space problems on the Abit KT7 Raid were no the Swiftech is expected with any board layout problems the installation is unique and ingenious solution of 2 screws and springs, however, requires a screwdriver, a little patience, a little more time and care. If you understand the principle, you can see how awesome and professionally, this solution is.
You put the cooler without any effort on the CPU, turn the screws of the holder into an extent that can mount the bracket to the socket, nose the holders have certain latitude, the latter holds a short position and rotate turns the screws out so far until they are completely relieved. The compressed spring is released, expands, and thus generates the necessary clamping force to produce an optimal, uniform contact pressure on the CPU.
Tilting of the cooler on the CPU with proper use, is excluded, so that a copper-spacer to protect the CPU die can be omitted who wants to act with stronger springs in order to increase the contact pressure on the should let it remain, the Swiftech men are true professionals and have tested the optimal matching long.
