    Swiftech Caldera Heatsink for HD4870X2 released

    We are glad to announce the release of the Caldera heatsink for AMD's HD4870X2 graphics card.

    "The Caldera heatsink is the perfect companion for the MCW60 water-block, and will also work with the upcoming Caldera Water-block. Together, they provide superior performance and excellent cost savings compared to full-cover water-block solutions."

    MSRP: $39.95

    Initial release quantity is very limited. Bulk of the inventory is expected to be ready by December 5. Unfortunately, there is no shipping on friday (no UPS)

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL XS MEMBERS!

    A question for anyone who's ordered this part, or any other, from Swiftech. I placed my order last night and still haven't received my confirmation email from them. Has anyone else had this? I know, wait 'til tomorrow, if they're open, and call them. I'm just antsy because of all the "jones-ing" I've done waiting for this part.

    Yes, thank you, I did hear that, hehe! Usually these things are handled automatically. I was just curious if maybe Swiftech was, I don't know, low tech when it comes to their sales processing.

    It is nice to see a manufacturer looking out for the consumer by offering easy upgrade paths without having to refinance the house.

    Seriously? Do you really think that Swiftech should test OTHER manufacturer's blocks to see if they work with a Swiftech product? Wake up?

    I would say he is maximising sales, because if you want it, and you want to know it'll work you've got to use MCW60s .

    Anyway looks great. It's nice to see someone picking up where D-Tek left off with the uni-sinks.

    Edit: Sorry it doesn't look like it will work. The base of the MCW60 is 51mm by 51mm, where the Fuzion is 55.1mm by 50.2mm. The shape above looks pretty squarish, and I'm guessing will only work with the MCW60.

    Swiftech is not in business to make things that are compatible with D-Tek blocks just like D-Tek isn't in business to make things compatible with Swiftech blocks. If I were Gabe, I wouldn't bother testing if anyone else's stuff fit either.

    You guys do realize you could open up the waterblock holes with tools right? You're talking 4mm on each side, pretty easy work if you know what you're doing.

    Yep, but I was figuring he wanted to know without modification. There's a couple of ways to get around it, that's just one good one.
