Swiftech MCW30 Chipset Cooler

Features
The Swiftech MCW30 chipset water block is a versatile chipset water-block compatible with numerous Intel and
AMD platforms. Its low flow restriction characteristics and wide range of useable fittings make it ideal for integration
with just about any liquid cooling system.
High flow and thermal performance for all system configurations
The water-block ships with 1/2" and 3/8" barbs in the US, and an extra pair of 1/4" fittings for Europe.
The NPSM thread used in the MCW30 is BSPP and G 1/4 fittings compatible (*)
Completely unrestricted chamber to minimize pressure drop.
Hooks directly to Intel® platform chispets without removing the motherboard with a safe hook/spring assembly
Thru-motherboard installation for AMD® platform chipsets with slotted brackets for compatibility from 2.08" (53mm)
to 2.36" (60mm) center to center distance between mounting holes.
Compatible with all current Asus SLI motherboards
Retention mechanisms included for both Intel & AMD platforms

Important notification to users: due to the extreme variety existing among chipset retention mechanisms, as well
as location of the chipset relative to the CPU and/or other components, Swiftech simply cannot keep track of all
motherboard configurations, and guarantee compatibility. As a result, Swiftech's customer service will respond to
specific queries with respect to motherboard compatibility by referring users to this page. It is the responsibility of the
user to determine compatibility based on the information provided herein.


Retention mechanism

The wire-clips for installation with Intel chipsets are included with the fastening hardware.
Removal of the motherboard from the chassis is not necessary for installation of the MCW30 in
this type of motherboards.


Overall quality & attention to details
Exceptional quality and attention to details: the copper base is lapped to 0.0003" (3/10 of 1/1000"), and polished to
near-mirror finish to promote optimum thermal conductivity. Users are advised that while flatness is strictly respected
for providing the most significant benefit to thermal interface, surface polish is a cosmetic component and may vary
slightly from one water-block to another. Re-lapping or polishing the copper base is never recommended.

















General Specifications

Baseplate Copper C110
lapped flat to 3/10 of 1/1000", and near mirror polished.

Housing Injection moulded POM (Acetal Copolymer)
1/4" NPSM thread
O-ring seal  
Dimensions Length 1.75" (44mm) x Width 1.30" (33mm) x Height incl. fittings 2.1" (54mm)  
Weight  2.1 oz - 60 g

Range of mounting holes

Fittings compatibility note:

G ¼, or BSPP, fittings will fit, but may not seal; each must be checked prior to assuming that it will not leak just
because they fit together.

Both NPSM and G ¼ (BSPP) are parallel thread and nominally the same size, the principal difference being 18
threads per inch for NPSM and 19 threads per inch for G ¼ (BSPP). Since most male end G ¼ fittings have a short
thread length they can generally be engaged in the NPSM threads without difficulty.

The joint seal is effected with an o-ring which for the NPSM barb is in a groove on the waterblock top and
compressed by the flange nut barb.
G ¼ fittings have the o-ring captured in a groove under the fitting nut.

G ¼ fittings will seal so long as there is a straight portion under the nut flats sufficient to bring the G ¼ fitting’s o-ring
into contact with the bottom of the o-ring groove, a depth of 0.080”.
