    Following the recent release of the Apogee XL with multi-color lighting, Rouchon Industries Inc., d/b/a/ Swiftech today announced the release of their Komodo-NV LE (Luxury Edition) VGA waterblock.

    The Komodo-NV LE (Luxury Edition) is a full cover waterblock compatible with Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan, Titan Black, GTX 780, and GTX 780 Ti graphics cards (reference designs). The coolant flow path includes all critical components such as GPU, memory and power mosfets. Proper cooling of all the critical components contributes to overclocking stability and reliable operations.

    The block covers the entire PCB, leaving no components exposed to possible damages during handling. A brushed aluminum back plate is included with the product, and when used with the Titan version also cools the backside memory. The product includes interchangeable color strips to light up the coolant window and front logo plate in 4 colors: Green (as shipped), red, blue or clear. The company expects the AMD counterpart (Komodo R9 LE) to be released next.

    MSRP: $179.95

    Bitpower GPU blocks for the Titan and 780 are way better. But I wish they had the lighting options like the swiftech.

    I love Swiftech, but $180 for a single GPU block is way too damn expensive.

    It's not called Luxury Edition for nothing! :p


    I will be ordering three, myself. :p Now I just need H220X(for CPU) and H320X (so I can add GPUs to this unit) to release, and I can complete my rig's cooling loops!

    It is not too expensive for what your are getting. This is great for modders.
    Full PCB cover with matching backplate.
    The lighting is nice touch.

    D-5 models !They hew rotor so no slapin the water !Good models have a rotor !and do not hit the water as many are (more adequate for aquarium pumps). They also have a regulator for speed and can be mounted on rubber adjacent carriers to further mitigate noise and vibration. The rotor is made of rubber and is molded directly with the magnetic element. Continuous use pump D-5 of the EK for 5 years and I have no problem. The pump is very quiet I can say. Can be purchased from many providers, and costs about 70 € without housing with housing at least € 85 or more .1600 L/h is good efficiency !:)
