Swiftech Intros Komodo Luxury Edition Water Block for TITAN X Pascal

Swiftech today introduced the Komodo Luxury Edition (NV-LE) full-coverage water block for the NVIDIA TITAN X Pascal graphics card. This block is a premium variant of the Komodo Eco block recently announced for the TITAN X Pascal. What sets the two apart is the opaque metal element that covers the acrylic top over all parts except the coolant channel; and an included green LED lighting kit (which has to be purchased separately for the NV-ECO). The underlying block is still nickel-plated copper; with the same exact coolant channel and heat-dissipation micro-fin lattice over the GPU; as the NV-ECO. The Komodo Luxury Edition (NV-LE) block for the TITAN X Pascal is priced at US $169.95.

When I see these small low gaps, slots can remember on the same small cooling slots in my GTX590 TGT. Not so effectively as I would like. The surface is smaller than processor. It raises the question of the quantity of liquid streamed, it is at least 10 mm the smallest opening in the circle (FITTERS 1/2 "). It is possible to parallel and sequential connections, which is good. The block is more expensive than the competition. Efficacy in Clocking is also smaller ! Appearance does not fit in the first place in cooling .

1/ cooling engine remarks:
- efficiency: you are not seeing the 2 rows of turbulators ...
- flow rate: the fin size spacing and quantity is optimized to provide an excellent balance between cooling and flow rate
- overall size: you are mistaken. the fin bed is always at least as large as the silicon

2/ pricing:
- competition does not include all the goodies included in this Luxury Edition: Back plate, RGB lighting system with controller, PWM control cable, pre-installed thermal pads (don't you HATE having to cut these yourself???) anyways, for a more affordable version, the Eco line is there, and perfectly competitive price-wise with all other similarly constructed blocks on the market.

3/ Appearance:
I never argue with subjective perception. You either like it or you don't, and this is your God-given right :)

Thank you for your feed-back, it is always appreciated!
