Swiftech Launches Kimodo Water Block for GTX 285

0
Posted May 5, 2009 by Jake in Cooling

This “full cover” waterblock cools the GPU, Voltage Regulators, I/O chip, and memory modules. Komodo represents Swiftech’s latest achievements in water cooling. It uses embedded 0.6 mm pin matrix located directly above the GPU area and low restriction water channels across the whole block. The base is made of chrome plated C110 electrolytic copper, and the top is machined in black Delrin. High thermal conductivity grease pads are pre-applied in the memory and mosfet areas for user convenience. Short barb fittings are included with the block for 3/8″ or 1/2″ tubing. Since Swiftech Komdo occupies only one slot, it is compatible with dual and even triple SLI setups. Total weight of the block is 772g.

The Komodo water-block is a single slot, liquid cooling solution for nVidia? reference design GeForce? GTX285 graphics cards. This “full cover” waterblock cools the GPU, Voltage Regulators, I/O chip, and memory modules.

The Komodo water-block offers superior thermal performance at the GPU level thanks to an embedded thin-pin matrix located directly above the GPU area. Flow restriction is moderate by design in order to take into account multiple water-blocks in the same loop, and is similar to that of the classic MCW60 (See pressure drop vs. flow rate curve below).

The base is made of chrome plated electrolytic copper, and the top is machined in black Delrin. High thermal conductivity grease pads are pre-applied in the memory and mosfet areas for user convenience. Short barb fittings are included with the block for 3/8″ or 1/2″ tubing and compatible with dual or triple SLI setups.

You can purchase it now, directly from Swiftech for $134.95.
