Introduction

OCZ Technology first began doing business in August of 2000 and since then has earned a reputation for being one of the top manufacturers of enthusiast computer hardware in the marketplace. From their initial offerings of high speed memory, to their current lineup including power supplies and cooling products, OCZ's claim to fame has been their commitment to the end user. They continue to be innovators in their field and are constantly developing new and exciting products like the one we have for review today, the HF-MK1 HydroFlow CPU waterblock.


Looking over their current product lineup and comparing that with discontinued EOL items, I believe the HF-MK1 represents OCZ's first foray into the field of liquid cooling. Branching into a new area of development can be a difficult process for a hardware manufacturer, however given OCZ's history we know they certainly are capable of producing quality parts. The HydroFlow does appear to have all the right specifications, beginning with a pure copper base and triangular pin design for a high volume-to-surface ratio. The poly top with rubber O-ring assures a leak-free seal and the included 3/8" and 1/2" high-flow barbs give it a wide range of compatibility with other water cooling components. Mounting options include both Intel socket 775 and AMD 754/939/AM2 variations. Top it all off with OCZ's typical attention to detail and what we have here is a quality product backed by an impressive two-year warranty.

Join me as I take a closer look at the OCZ HydroFlow waterblock.
