Product Description

The Komodo™ NV- GTX980-ECO full cover waterblock shares the same cooling features on the base plate as the LE (Luxury Edition) edition as a foundation, but uses an acrylic housing instead, making it more economical. Thermal and hydraulic performance are identical to the LE.

This product is compatible with Nvidia® GeForce™ GTX 980 and 970 models using the same reference PCB. The coolant flow path includes all critical components such as GPU, memory, power mosfets as well as all other power components specified in NVidia's "Thermal Solutions Design Guide".

Proper cooling of all the critical components contributes to overclocking stability, reliable operations, and longevity of the graphics card. The block covers the entire PCB, leaving no components exposed to possible damages during handling.

Among the new features, the Komodo GTX980-ECO is now equipped with standardized installation standoffs using an M2,5 metric thread, which allows users to re-use most of the stock cooling solution fasteners.

Why is the Komodo-NV a superior cooling solution ?
The only true full cover water-block The blocks cover the full length of the card and utilizes all the original circuit board mounting points; this results in superior thermal interface with all the components, but more importantly it prevents bending and/or damage to the card compared to competing solutions that leave critical components exposed for cost saving purposes; the Komodo-NV series continue this exclusive Swiftech® initiative as a true professional solution (an industry first).
Moderate flow restriction by design The water channels have been optimized for optimum flow rate in order to take into account multiple waterblocks in the same loop; additionally, the high efficiency of the thermal design authorizes better thermal performance at low flow rates.
True Chrome Plated copper base plate Maintenance-free, corrosion-free, discoloration-free, and a brighter whiter color: the precision CNC machined copper base plate is plated with true chrome, as opposed to commonly used nickel plating (which is yellowish).
Precision CNC machined housing The main housing is precision CNC machined out of acrylic material.
Pre-applied thermal pads High conductivity thermal pads and reusable high performance gap-fillers are pre-applied to the memory, VR and other components;  there is no need to waste time cutting thermal pads as is often the case with other blocks; high quality Tim-Mate™ 2 thermal grease is included with the water-block for application to the GPU area.
SLI support
Depending on your motherboard, up to four Komodo-NV GTX980-ECO waterblocks can be interconnected using Lok-Seal™ adjustable connector fittings.

Compatibility

The Komodo-NV GTX980-ECO is compatible with Nvidia reference PCB design PG401 for GeForce® GTX980.  The PCB revision number represents the deciding factor to go by when selecting your Swiftech product,rather than the brand and/or model number of the card. Nvidia reference design boards normally bear the Nvidia logo, with the PCB number positioned directly below it.  Please carefully inspect your card to locate the PCB revision number.

"the Komodo NV-LE exceeded all expectations in terms of performance. The gap between the Komodo NV-LE and the other blocks tested was large enough that I actually went back and remounted the other blocks to verify my findings"
