    Swiftech GTZ 1366 LGA reviewed by XS member

    As always, excellent craftsmanship from Swiftech. I especially like the mounting; no loose parts, no tools needed, thumbscrews, wiggle room to squeeze out the thermal paste. Beating all other aftermarket mountings by far in my opinion.

    Some pictures:











    According to Swiftech, the chromed hold-down is what will be shipped in the mounting for LGA1366, while the back plate might differ at launch.

    MSRP: $9.95 (USD) for the mounting.

    Testing has already begun, but I can't disclose any numbers as of now

The Production back-plate is stamped steel & pem standoffs and expected to arrive on time for Corei7 official launch (crossing fingers..)

    And now i'm glad i upgraded blocks. 10 bucks to go from 775 to 1366? Ya i can deal with that. Sad part is, shipping will probably be 8 bucks

    Btw dudes.. there are very smart board makers who are drilling LGA775 mounting holes along with 1366.. yes you cna have both.. only the clever ones like Foxconn figured it out.. so depending on your board, you may not need a diff retension kit

    I wonder if having four more holes will have any impact on motherboard rigidity? A moot point with a good backplate, I'd assume, but I wonder if somebody using push-pins on an 8-hole board will run into issues?

    correct me if i am wrong, but isnt the socket for the LGA775 smaller than LGA1366? if so, using older water blocks would not be as effeive as a larger waterblock designed for the LGA1336?

    Sorry if this isnt clear, what i am basically saying is, lga1336 = larger physical size? .:. larger water block would increase the surface area that is in contact, improving cooling.

    Yes but the heat source, the actual die, is not any bigger than current quads... and remember Nehalem is back to single die... for now.

    also note that current waterblocks are well large enough to cover the entire 1366 IHS

    Which I should point out is not even necessary...

    Bummer. I guess I'll wait until Swiftech releases this as an in box item since I'm in the market for a new block. D-Tek has been silent about their release.

    Same here. No point in jumping on the new parts until i can mount the waterblock. Figure the longer it takes the bracket to come out, maybe prices will come down a bit

    Knowing UK/IE prices, they might actually go up

    Rampage II Extreme at 340 anyone. Not including shipping of course
