OC3D Review: AC Cuplex HD, Swiftech Apogee GTZ and XSPC Delta V3 shootout

With the release of some new waterblocks on the scene, we thought it was time to have a little shootout between the three new kids on the block, and a couple of the oldies.



Check out the review here

Great review mate. Shame the Cuplex didn't do better as I really like the look of it too. Can't have it all I guess

Interesting that Aqua Computer decided to stick to a very restrictive design... with the likes of D-TEK, Danger Den, Swiftech and XSPC all focusing on high flow rates and low pressure drop they've left themselves in the same camp as EK, a very formidable opponent.

Great review PV...

One question however. Why didn't the GTZ get the best in class award as the Supreme currently holds it. By the results you got, it was stomped!
