Swiftech is synonymous with two things: high-end watercooling parts and pinned heatsinks. Ever since the release of the original MC370 (and later MCX370) cooler, the company has remained the only widespread manufacturer of pin heatsinks. The concept is simple: pins have the potential to provide much more surface area than similar spaced fins, in theory improving performance. We'll see how this holds up, especially given today's heatpipe craze, a technology Swiftech has yet to harness.
