Swiftech Komodo waterblock launched for GeForce GTX 285

Posted on Monday, May 04 2009 @ 20:02:09 CEST by

Swiftech has introduced the Komodo waterblock for reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 graphics cards. The Swiftech Komodo cools the GeForce GTX 285's GPU, voltage regulators, I/O chip and memory modules. The waterblock has a C110 copper baseplate with 0.6mm pin matrix and a black Delrin top. The Komodo is sold for $134.95.
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 Delrinl. 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.
  • Base plate: C110 copper with 0.6mm Pin Matrix
  • Housing body: Black Delrin
  • Inlet/outlet port threads: 1/4" BSPP (G 1/4)
  • Thermal joint installation: thermal grease (GPU) and pre-applied pads for memory, nvio and mosfets,
  • Dimensions (Inch): 7 3/4 " (L) x 4 3/4" (W) x .1/2" (H)
  • Dimensions (Metric): 198mm (L) x 122mm (W) x 13mm (H)
  • Weight: 1.7 lb (772 g)

    Nice JOB! This block hits all the good points, save an acrylic face (which probably couldn't be made that thin and not crack).

    Lightweight, single slot thickness, pin matrix for maximum cooling, and full coverage of all heat points.

    Gabe has done this one proud.
