The cooling "engine" of the Storm is a pure jet impingement design. It uses 35 mini jets directing high velocity coolant into individually matching cups. In the designer's own words: "the Storm design implements jet disruptors to turbulate incoming jets prior to striking the cup's base". Swiftech fine-tuned the design to yield slightly better performance than the original in terms of thermal and flow resistance.

I saw that on the frontpage to FrozenCPU. $75 seems really high for a waterblock. Then again, I just bought a PolarFLO TT CPU water block a few weeks ago, and I should be getting a Danger Den NV-68 6800 block soon (which was quite expensive).

SwiftTech definitely makes nice looking waterblocks...

Seems liek the Storm G4 block, seems Swiftech bought the design.

I didn't know "turbulate" was a word. Learn something new every day.

I agree $75 seems high for a CPU waterblock. I've spent well under $50 for each of mine (admittedly only on sale), and their performance is more than acceptable.

Good thing those laing pumps have so much head pressure, cause that thing looks like a more restrictive tdx design. The price is really bad compared to swiftech's old block.

There's a lot more labour intensive workmanship involved in this block than Swiftech's past blocks. The mounting plate for the Storm is as well finished as other waterblocks' bases :p
