Product Description

The Komodo™ NV-LE GTX 1080 full cover waterblock is a high performance cooling solution with advanced thermal design and low flow restriction, compatible with Nvidia's GeForce GTX 1080 and GTX 1070 flagship graphics cards reference PCB designs.   This model marks the beginning of our third generation of "Luxury Edition" VGA waterblocks focused on smooth and streamlined elegance, and is now introducing the use of a new RGB ALED lighting system compatible with all versions of Swiftech's X2 series CPU coolers. This will allow users to unify the color scheme of their entire cooling system at the push of a button.

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 housing and bridge are made of high quality acrylic material, allowing the back lighting system to shine through the edges of the block, the coolant window, and the bridge;  the base plate is made of chrome plated C110 copper with pre-installed thermal pads; the housing surface is dressed with a black anodized aluminum top plate featuring a central cutout to show the coolant flow path, and highlighted beveled edges;  the housing top plate is mirrored by a similarly finished back-plate, protecting and beautifying the back side of the graphics card.

The new ALED technology allows users to change the lighting color scheme at the push of a button, using the included light controller, and is demonstrated below.





SLI installations:  Fully compatible with Swiftech's new Universal bridges. See the bridges product page.

Why is the Komodo NV-LE 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 many competing solutions that leave critical components exposed for cost saving purposes; the Komodo NV-LE series continue this exclusive Swiftech® initiative as a true professional solution.
Moderate flow restriction by design The water channels are 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 competing solutions; our high quality Tim-Mate™ 2 thermal grease is included with the water-block for application to the GPU area.
SLI support
Up to four Komodo NV-LE GTX 1080 waterblocks can be interconnected using either Lok-Seal™ adjustable connector fittings, or our new upcoming generation of SLI bridges (to be announced).

Compatibility

The KOMODO-NV-LE GTX1080 is compatible with Nvidia reference PCB designs PG413 (Geforce GTX1080) and PG411 (Geforce GTX1070).  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"
