    Swiftech today announced the release for retail sales of the Komodo HD7970 waterblock for AMD's Radeon HD 7970 graphics card.

    Covering the full-length of the card to protect its fragile components, and featuring an enhanced thermal design, illuminated bridge, and a comprehensive package including single-slot PCI bracket and a back-plate, this is the most sophisticated full-cover waterblock offered by Swiftech to date. Companion accessories complete the offering with optional CrossFireX bridges and adjustable connectors for multiple card configurations.

    Nice looking block. Are they doing anything as nice for the 7870? It doesn't look like the 7970 is worth the price premium if you're just gaming.

    ..."protect its fragile components,"... meaning fragile as in an egg, or fragile as in if-you-take-a-screwdriver-to-it-you-will-break-it?

    first time i have read that the components on a graphics card are fragile... static sensitive yes, but fragile as in "be careful, stuff will fall off if you are not careful" no!...

    What's the point of water-cooling AMD GPU? If you want more FPS - don't bother with that expensive stuff , just buy GTX680 for 1/3 of the money. :roll:
