    Following the recent release of the Apogee XL with multi-color lighting, along with the Komodo-NV LE (Luxury Edition) for NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan, Titan Black, GTX 780, and GTX 780 Ti graphics cards (reference designs), Rouchon Industries Inc., d/b/a/ Swiftech today announced the release of their KomodoR9-LE (Luxury Edition) VGA waterblock.

    The Komodo R9-LE (Luxury Edition) is a full cover waterblock compatible with AMD Radeon 290 & 290X Graphics cards (AMD reference PCB design). 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 also cools the backside mosfets. 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.

    MSRP: $179.95

    It looks somewhat busy to me, the threaded part looks massively chunky.

    Reduced head loss, hopefully? Theseblocks on the whole look considerably thicker than the previous Komodos.

    They look nice, but man that price. It's the reason I moved away from full coverage blocks. Already sold a 7970 with a full coverage block on it, now just got a 290x with a H90 and a G10 and plan to just use that on future GPU's with about the same effectiveness and a lot less cost, just got to sell off my last blocked 7970.
