-Best thermal performance: the Apogee™ Drive II manages to achieve better thermal performance than the award-winning Apogee™ HD.
-Best hydraulic performance: thanks to the integrated, PWM controlled MCP35X pump, which has established itself as the best-in-class pump on the market, the Apogee™ Drive II is the world's only waterblock that can be considered as a flow enhancing device, as opposed to a flow-robbing device.
-Best retention mechanism: proven time and again to satisfy beginners and hard-core enthusiasts alike for its ease of use, reliability, and repeatable results.
-Compact form factor enables liquid cooling in space constrained applications.
-Adjustable G1/4 inlet and outlet ports, compatible with all compression fittings.

Pros,,, High powered small and compact pump block combo. It works very well. Cons... Very very loud at anything but the lowest speeds. Is not compatible with most controllers other than your motherboard. (huge dent for me) My motherboard (MSI890FXgd70) barely controls it,, and I had to put min cpu fan speed to 0% to get it to pump at what seemed to be the min pump speed of 1200. Then it only varies by what smart target i have my cpu temp set to,, but barely a gradual bump. I had to set the max temp to 60 to keep it quiet. Dissappointing. I like it for quality and it works,, but hate its electronics. I spoke with the owner of the company who gave me the runaround trying to figure this out, gave me bad information from time to time,, while informing me he was excellent in customer service (i did not agree and will not buy from them again because of him,, even if they make a better product in the future, that you can control) Oh, he acted like i was a dummy for the controller thing because I did not read the manual before I bought the product... yea my bad i guess. Good luck with your business GABE!

Man am I impressed with this pump/waterblock. I was using a 655 and a danger den on my i5-750 and it was just sub par in my opinion. With this pump/block running 1/2inch ID tubing to a dual 120 swiftech rad I am getting 34c idle and 51c max temps on an I7-3820 at 4.5ghz. Add another positive this thing removes the need for a pump taking up much more space, makes installing a LC loop in a mid-tower a breeze. Excellent product will certainly get another for my next system if needed!
